Brody Alexander had an obsession for the longest time to be a clown and bullfighter. He is happy he followed his dream.
Rita Markum returns home to care for her mother who is about to have knee surgery. Running into Brody only proves that her love for him never left her heart.
Socrates is a mule and master of meditation, and performer for small and large children. Now, if he can just play matchmaker for Brody, everything will be great.
When Brady learns that Rita is back, all he can think about is the girl he wanted during high school graduation. Years ago, he turned her down one night and has never forgiven himself. Rita has never forgotten the handsome bullfighter who stole her heart, but that was years ago. She lives in the big city with her fiancé, David, and helps with his workload. When David surprises Rita with a short visit, Brody is not impressed with the man, nor is Socrates. He does not like the way David treats Rita when she helps with his job. Brody forms a plan for David, while Socrates prepares for a wedding, but what will Rita say once she learns the facts?
I enjoyed the way Socrates narrates Down Home Ever Lovin’ Mule Blues. Socrates lends great humor to the tale. The dialogue and antics are fantastic. I love the sparkling characters and the chemistry they emit to each other. Jacquie Rogers takes Socrates and Guinevere, the skunk, along with some other frisky animals, and sets in motion one awesome read. The games alone are interesting and entertaining. With some laugh out loud antics, the secondary characters put an extra spin on the story, making the couple really shine in this extraordinary tale with splendid characterizations allowing this reader to feel great inside.
