This week, I'm sharing...

 Here is the synopsis:
Meet the Sassy Belles

They're strong as a mint julep, sweet as peach cobbler, and no matter what, they stick together.

There are only two seasons in Tuscaloosa: football and waiting-for-football. When Lewis Heart, football announcer and voice of the Crimson Tide, vanishes after an impromptu romp with Vivi Ann McFadden at the Fountain Mist Motel, Vivi does what any Southern woman would do: call her best friend, Blake Hara Heart, attorney-at-law.

With the town gossip swirling around them, Vivi and Blake are determined to find out what happened to Lewis and clear Vivi's reputation. Because after all, men may come and go, but the Sassy Belles are forever.

Not since Steel Magnolias have we fallen in love with such sexy, strong and hilarious Southern women. So grab your best girlfriends and join these Belles on the first of many joyrides through the Deep South.


Here are my thoughts:
This book had a lot of promise.  I love mysteries and I love books set in the South.  I could practically smell the magnolias and taste the sweet tea from the start.

Unfortunately, it fell flat after the first few chapters.  There was too much inner monologue and focus on Blake when I wanted more information on the mystery involving Lewis and Vivi.  I kept pushing through just to find out the answer to the mystery- and I couldn't have been more annoyed and disappointed when it was revealed.   

What are you currently reading??

That sounds like a great set-up for a book. It's too bad the execution of it disappointed you. Better luck next read!

I hate it when the synopsis is wonderful and then the book is not.
They pull you in and let you down. :0

This book does look like it should be really cute. Too bad it didn't live up to your expectations though.

You should read about sparkly vampires and wizards and stuff.
