Read this book, y'all!

I'm not from the South, but loved this book. It is full of fun people, and has real heart. I saw a little bit of myself in each of the four main characters, and the family relationships would resonate with anyone. Not to mention it gave me new appreciation for the wisdom of Dolly! I'm sure you will enjoy it, too ...

Great beach read!

I took this book with me on my summer vacation and absolutely loved it! With a single mom, two married ladies and a single gal, How Dolly Parton Saved My Life has a character everyone can relate to. Definitely pick up this book and throw it in your beach bag!

Southern Charm in Jelly Jars Sisterhood

Entertainment Weekly and Southern Living OL both gave this new ChickLit an excellent review.Funny and poignant.The Jelly Jar Sisters are true Southern girls caught up in Cosmopolitan Atlanta leading to lots conflict and fun. I loved the scene at Christmas with the call to Santa. Was a great read. The Jelly Jar Sisterhood Rules were the best! I spent a wonderful day curled up with a light hearted fun book. You'll love it!

A Fun, Southern-Style Read

This was a very enjoyable book about four high-spirited women in the south who get together to create a catering company. While each of the women have very distinct personalities from each other, they were all very relatable and you get to know about their families, their relationship, and their lives. All of them make sacrifices to make the business work and it's fun to see the "rules" they come up with as a business model in order to do so. While there are some references to religion and church, none of it is over the top or preachy and the importance these women place on family is endearing and refreshing in this day and age. Overall, it's a fun read and you'll come away thinking you never knew Dolly Parton was so wise.

Put a little south in yore mouth!

Incredibly hilarious! this book is full of old southern charm and witty as can be without mocking southerners. i lived many of these episodes or similar ones anyway. In fact, it reminds me of many of my relatives! It's humerous with a little bit of romance thrown in. Go get 'em girl!!
