"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.
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!
