Vicki Hendricks is renowned for her noir novels—Miami Purity, Iguana Love, Voluntary Madness, Sky Blues, and Cruel Poetry. Although Fur People doesn’t qualify as noir, you’re in for quite a ride!
In this book, Sunny, a young animal hoarder with big dreams and little money, drives a camper-bus back to her home town in Florida, to live cheaply in the woods. She plans to recover her high school sweetheart from ten years earlier and start her own animal rescue. Problems arise, of course, including struggles with Mother Nature and the local authorities, and eventually she buddies up with an unusual homeless man. Men are drawn to Sunny, as they are to most of [Vicki’s] female characters, but in Fur People, they would like to help her, as well as romance her.
“I’ve always loved animals more than murder, and I’m hoping to bring some of my old readers into this new genre with me.” Vicki Hendricks
