“"Saving Rachel" was my first introduction to Donovan Creed, and I like the man. I enjoyed the book - the plot twists and turns throughout, the characters have to make some horrific choices, but the scene I loved most involved red eye gravy.
The characters John Locke created came straight from my small town and they would've reacted the same way to any intruder who didn't appreciate the finer things in life - namely, red eye gravy and biscuits, and women who need a shave. I didn't think anyone other than my family knew about red eye gravy anymore, and it was an absolute delight to see such a tasty Southern dish worked into a novel.
Any man who can write so convincingly about red eye gravy deserves to be read. I'll look forward to getting to know Donovan Creed better in the future. ”
