    Fun caper

    This was an interesting book for me because I seldom read books to do with the mob and I’ve never even watched The Godfather. So, I’m afraid that many of the references in this book would have gone over my head. Still, this was a pretty enjoyable read! Falling Onto Cotton by Matthew E. Wheeler had quite an interesting premise, of what would you do if you didn’t want to take over the mob that your uncle is trying to pass down to you. I was expecting lots of hijinks and this didn’t disappoint! However, this really isn’t a thriller in that the action is pretty limited and the main focus of the story really is the relationships that Chance has with his family, employees, and friends. Most of the aforementioned hijinks were spaced out throughout the book to keep the book from becoming too heavy as loss and trauma were prevalent themes. Although I like a good examination of characters and relationships, I kind of wish a little more attention was paid to the machinations within the mob. That’s just me though. Maybe I just want to have my cake and eat it too, to have a book that’s both literary fiction and high on thrills.. If I’m not wrong, this is Wheeler’s debut novel and it is a solid offering. Definitely looking forward to his future works as polishes his craft! Diversity meter: Fleshed out Black character Mental illness
