I loved this book! A great summer read! Growing up in the South, these characters really spoke to me and each reminded me of someone from childhood. Funny, heart-warming read!

The story started out well. I enjoyed the writing and the interplay between the very different sisters as they sought to satisfy the conditions of their grandmother's will with varying degrees of enthusiasm and motivation.
Then the plot took a detour into the ridiculous, which had its humorous moments but also had me thinking "Really??" Then the romance pretty well took over with all the trappings of wealthy handsome guy takes fancy to the sister desperate for her part of grandmother's inheritance which to be quite honest was a bit disappointing in its predictability.
However the story had enough going for it, it was worth finishing and being the first book I have read of Haywood Smith, I'd like to try something else she has written. I'm hoping for a good read.

Slow moving, light romance. I think it's geared for the 55+ crowd. But, if u like a happy ending, this book will satisfy.
