Hollister McClane is a small-town, southern Missouri, gorgeous (if she does say so herself) heroine who has a knack for accidentally robbing banks, a convenience store, and a possible drug cartel. She might inadvertently throw in a couple of grand theft autos, but truly, she wouldn’t hurt a fly--not even when that Ruger falls into her lap. Savvy and self-taught, eternally optimistic and zealously patriotic, Hollister walks, runs, hitchhikes, and drives from one chance encounter to another across America’s heartland.
After accidentally robbing her first bank dressed as Uncle Sam, Hollister sees her newfound life on the run as a matter of fate. And it doesn’t hurt that she is a genius at disguises (if she does say so herself). Hollister tries to do the right thing with her newfound bounty, but somehow, it keeps slipping through her fingers. Also, there are a few obstacles along the way, such as the law, the lovers, the three not-quite-ex-husbands, the babies, and always, world-weary Mama. As Hollister’s story unfolds, we learn that, while charming, she might not be as responsible or reliable as she thinks. And when she finally does use that gun, she’s pointing it too close to home.
