"Fun and God with Dorothy"
The first three books in award-winning journalist Charlene Ann Baumbich's Dearest Dorothy series won her a congregation of adoring fans for her pleasant tales set amid the good people of Partonville.

The holidays are coming, and a plan to build a mini-mall has some residents in a tizzy. It'll take some shrewd negotiating and a little help from the Big Guy upstairs for Dorothy to set this one right.
Dorothy can't believe her 58-year-old son, Jacob, has left his successful Philadelphia law firm and is replacing Partonville's recently deceased lawyer. And as the new mini-mall prepares to open, most of the townspeople - spurred on by a generous $100 first prize - are busy trying to create a clever name for it.
"Dearest Dorothy is a wonderful series!"
