Graciela "Ace" Jones is mad-mad at her best friend Lilly who cancels their annual trip to Panama City for mysterious reasons; at her boss Catherine for "riding her ass like a fat lady on a Rascal scooter;" at her friend Chloe's abusive husband; and especially at Mason McKenzie, the love of her life, who has shown up with a marriage proposal three years too late.
"What a fun read."
Ace has left the tiny Mississippi town of Bugtussle for the palm fronds and mojitos of Pelican Cove, Florida. She's finally opening her long-dreamed-of art gallery, is kick-starting a life with her fiancé, Mason, and has vowed to leave her straight-talking, sassy ways behind her. From now on, she's going to be as sweet as sugar. Unfortunately, something comes along to sour her plans. That something is Mrs. Lenore Kennashaw and her coterie of crones. They're a bunch of snippy, snarky, and just plain mean ol' ladies who aren't quite as smart or rich as they'd like to think they are.
"A good sequel"
With her fiance now her ex-fiance, Ace has hightailed it back to Bugtussle, Mississippi, and back to her Gramma Jones's house. Her best friends, Lilly and Chloe, are delighted she's back, but Ace still has some challenges ahead of her. She is stuck working as a substitute teacher while harboring fantasies of running the art teacher who replaced her out of town. Lilly and Chloe are obsessed with setting her up on less-than-romantic blind dates - even though all she wants is a break from her pitiful love life.
"a great read !"
