Fannie Flagg is a great storyteller, but I didn't realize what a good reader she is. Knowing the author was reading the story herself gave it another dimension for me because there are not a large number of fiction writers out there who could pull this off. I enjoyed the tale, found a few parts of it contrived, and one plot convention in particular left me thinking that the sub plot about Edwina Crocker should be its own book, rather than an uncomfortably included story unrelated to the heroine here. Maggie is a bit less than a fully believable character, but the story flows well, and has a happy ending. All in all light reading to keep you occupied while doing something else.
