Desperate to save her Buckhead home from foreclosure after being left in the lurch, recent divorcee Dahlia must complete the summer and sell her share immediately. Practical, even-tempered Violet will be no problem, but Iris has been Dahlia's nemesis since she learned to say, "no" to her big sister. And super-sweet, quirky Garage Sale Queen Rose is so "green" she'd test the patience of a saint.
As tempers flare and old secrets are revealed, four grown women discover that the past is never truly buried.

So if Dr. Phil and Oprah had a kid that read nothing but Grisham and wrote a Disney movie of the week...
Broadly written characters are more caricatures than real, with an endless stream of bumper sticker catch phrases in the overwrought relationships of the sisters.
None the less, it is an easy listen that makes the miles in a car roll by easily. The narrator is one of the best female narrators ever.
Dont get me wrong, its not a bad book. Its just a simple read. If Gillian Flynn is a homemade cheesecake, this is jello. Good, but simple and basic.
Haywood Smith has the ability to make you smile,laugh out loud and cry. Her southern charactors and lyrical reader keep you listening. The best of her works yet.
I am a woman who loves to read and to listen to books. I want to be entertained and taken to another place when I listen..
This book was really Fun read! I laughed so hard I cried and believe me that does not happen too often!
What a joy it was to listen to this book. I laughed out loud and cried as the narrator made me feel the emotions through her performance!!! Do yourself a favor and get this book!!!!
love love love her books and the narrator is the best!!
awesome, love her!
sisters, the good, bad and the ugly
yes unfortunately audible is more expensive than buying from amazon so I will be cancelling
The book started off interesting and about midway through the book, it got boring. The last two chapters was okay
The mispronunciation of Dahlonega, GA bothered me. (Duh lawn eh ga) is the way it is pronounced. Oddly, this is the second book with different authors and narrators that has mispronounced Dahlonega.
Haywood Smith has such a way of infusing religion into her books without you feeling like your being preached to. It's nice listen to a good clean book.
You should check to see how to pronounce names of cities or other critical words before producing an audible recording. i.e. Dahlonega, Georgia
