This is such a fun book! It caught my eye at our local library in the new release section, so I thought I would give it a try. Once I got into it, the story was so good I could barely put it down. This is the first book by this author that I have read, but it won't be the last - her writing style is so real and off the cuff that you feel like you know the characters. AND, if you like stories where everything is tied up in a pretty bow at the end, you'll enjoy this book!
From the New York Times bestselling author of The Red Hat Club comes a hilarious story of marriage and love and second chances
When Elizabeth Mooney escaped the shame of her “white trash” family to marry the crown prince of her small town, Howell Whittington, she never dreamed that thirty years later, she’d end up trapped in a loveless marriage to the cruel banker who’s foreclosing on all her friends. Then Howe has a stroke sitting up in church, and when he wakes up, he’s at the mercy of all his appetites and emotions. Transformed, Howe wants to be a real husband, which scares proper, repressed Elizabeth to death, and setting out to right past wrongs, he blackmails the town’s baddies into doing the right thing by threatening to foreclose on their mortgages. The ensuing hilarious rollercoaster ride wakes up not only Elizabeth and their marriage, but the whole town and its hidebound institutions.
