"Browne succeeds at both extremes, writing a jaundiced but life-affirming book with sweetness and heart." (Publishers Weekly)
"Fans will welcome the follow-up to her first effort, and those new to her work will welcome the introduction." (AudioFile)
"Grab this little guide and launch a more dynamic and hilarious lifestyle." (Booklist)
Of all 3 Sweet Potato Queen books, this is by far the best. All the laughs are there, but the end is tempered with a sweetness that requires kleenex.
After reading (and loving) "The Sweet Potato Queens' Book of Love", I was thrilled that my (now, at least in my mind) dear friend Jill again picked up her pen. Her books are funny, touching and insightful, and has a way of really "hitting home". I laughed and I cried. Hey, if for no other reason, buy the darned thing to hear the chapter about Chimney Swifts.
This book is so funny. I keep laughing out loud in inappropriate places!! You will thoroughly enjoy this delight...just make sure you are in a place where you can get a good belly laugh going!
This is soooo good! I laughed out loud so many times. I almost had to pull my car over at one point, because I was laughing so hard, I could barely see to drive. The end, about the two most wonderful men in the world, is so real and deep that I was crying, but it was not a bad feeling. Jill Conner Browne is marvelous at putting feelings into words. I wish Audible had all of her books on tape.
Jill Conner Browne is a fantastic narrator and a wonderful story teller; this book, as with most of the Sweet Potato Queen’s books includes a lot of fun stories some about her or from friends and fans. Browne has the perfect recipe for these books, it starts off with a lot of funny short stories, with some advice thrown in, of course, then there is a sad/tear-jerker story somewhere in the middle, and then she wraps it up with some recipes which sound to die for.
Prepare to fantasize about delicious treats and cocktails while laughing your ass off. If you’re ever in need of a pick-me-up, the Queen will make you feel good.
Tell us about yourself! I love to read or listen( audio), nothing abridged ,I want every word the author penned that is what I want.
THIS BOOK IS FOR YOU,I CAN ALMOST SEE MYSELF THERE WITH THE LADIES.I WISH THEY WOULD COME OUT WITH A COOKBOOK ON ITS OWN SO MNY MOUTH WATERING RECIPES
I have heard Jill Conner Browne person and have purchased two other of her works from Audible so I am familiar with her speaking voice and style. The recording quality of this is very poor; it sounds as though the recording has been sped up a little making her voice sound very machine gun like rapid with a strange echo or reverb in the background as a result. Great book, funny stories, but the recording quality is very hard to listen to. I did not think the entire recording would be like this after listening to the sample so I purchased it anyway and feel as if I have wasted a credti.
Funny, bawdy, memorable. This is my favorite book. I quote from it regularly and have had 100% success with the "promise". I wouldn't offer this to my mohter-in-law but I did share it with my daughter. She loved it too!
