Venita Louise has created a hysterical funny comedy in Mixed Nuts. I don’t know how she does it.
With as quirky and unusual as the characters are, solving their neighbor problem using voodoo, hitting snails over the fence for revenge, wearing a kilt and no teeth, somehow, I could find myself in that plot very easily.
Maybe this means that we all have weird kids and quirky relatives and neighbors we are jealous of? I don’t know, I just know that I haven’t had this satisfying a laugh in a LONG time.
Thanks Ms. Louise, you are a pearl. Please write more! I can’t wait for the next book! Carol Wood, President of California Writers Club.
