The main characters are three wealthy, eccentric, middle-aged sisters. Most have general American accents. The secondary character's are one Asian-American male, two Mexican American females (one with more of a Mexican accent than the other), then an older Mexican man. The rest are all Americans of various ages from 22 to 92 and can have any Houston "twang".
I love this book. It's top of the line in story, production, reader and laughs.
Lila Mae has a fit over the annual Chocolate Ball that she and her sisters host. Dorothea and Madge dump it on her. If it weren’t for Julian Gillespie, the Chocolate Ball would have melted. Bernie, the Alcott patriarch, wants his Bentley back. Joseph’s cousin, Chewie, is hired as chauffeur. Bambii's thrilled to be expecting while Dorothea, pregnant at 55, is at war with the world. No one is exempt, especially Henry, who she refers to as “Mr. Responsible”.
All the old characters from HOT CHOCOLATE and great new ones. The sisters continue to be a riot. You learn more about Madge. I love these people!
