    Jill Conner Browne, royal boss of Mississippi's own Sweet Potato Queens, introduced them to the world in the hilarious best seller The Sweet Potato Queen's Book of Love. Fortunately for us, that was not the final chapter in the Queens' saga. The Sweet Potato Queens still have plenty to say and valuable wisdom to impart about how they went from being Cute Girls to Fabulous Women.

    The Best of the Bunch

    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.

    The Sweet Potato Queens like men. They like them so much that they have devoted an absolutely inordinate amount of time to the pursuit of men, marriage, and great sex. And then, when that doesn't work out, they've devoted an inordinate amount of time to divorce, getting another man, and having great sex with him instead.

    In Jackson, Mississippi, Mary Bennett, Patsy, Gerald, and Jill are high school classmates whose daily routine is paced like a shuffle through the local red dirt - until the arrival of a redheaded newcomer banishes monotony forever. With her luxurious mane and voluptuous figure, Tammy Myers aspires to join the silver-spooners. When Jill convinces Tammy and the others that money might buy a certain kind of good time and that true friendship has no price tag, the "Sweet Potato Queens" are born.

    The Sweet Potato Queens' Guide to Raising Children for Fun and Profit is a hilarious (though not scientifically tested) wink at the time-honored mysteries of parenting. For anybody who has ever had a kid or has ever known one, knows that the experience is neither fun nor profitable - so, you might as well laugh!

    From #1 New York Times best-selling humorist Jill Conner Browne comes a hilarious life maintenance program designed to help women navigate our hyper-visual society's obsessions with body image, clothing, and personal appearance. Getting and keeping that Queenly Look is no small feat - a good portion of our lives is devoted to our hair, our skin tone, our figure flaws, and our clothes.

    The Sweet Potato Queens are bona fide experts at planning a marvelous marriage (and ending one, look below if you're looking for advice on dumping a deadweight hubby!), so who better to provide this handy wedding planner?

    A note from the author: The older I get, the more I find all I'm really interested in doing is talking, laughing, and eating - not necessarily in that order, but always those three things. Over and over again. The one thing that didn't make this list was cooking. I love food (truly and passionately) and food always tastes better with friends, and especially when cooked by friends. So, I thought it was finally time to spill the beans and share the recipes.

    The Sweet Potato Queens are back and bawdier than ever in Southern belle extraordinaire Jill Conner Browne’s ninth edition of the hysterical series. Having experienced pretty much ALL of the crappy parts of life, Browne feels it is her duty to render whatever assistance she can to her fellow sufferers - and she does so in her own inimitable fashion.

    Her father taught her there are very few situations in life that we really and truly cannot change, and it is up to us to figure out how to either make fun OUT of them - or make fun OF them.
