As a Yankee living in the South, I was very interested to see how my experiences compared to the ones in this book. I too, moved to a new city with no family or friends there. Just had to wing it, so to speak. I completely understood getting used to the customs, food and slower way of life compared to when I lived up North.
Ms. Delarose wrote a good story with likable characters. Ms. Howlett gave each character their own voice and kept me interested in the book. I thought the book ended a little suddenly and I would have like to have known what happened with Dottie after the final scenes.
All in all, I would recommend this book to others.
