Tempestuous and beautiful Wanda Miles, daughter of Ruth and Stephen Miles (or so she thinks), aspires to more than the life of a debutante, but the trouble is she doesn't know precisely what she wants. Then her aunt Marie, the family's renowned glassblower, arrives from Lauscha, Germany, and Wanda decides that learning about her ancestry may hold the key to her future. When Marie accidentally reveals a long-held secret about Wanda's parents, Wanda goes to Lauscha to unravel the truth.

Princess, Southern belle, and spoiled-rotten social climber Searcy Roberts swore on a stack of Bibles she'd never return home to Fairhope, Alabama. After marrying her high school sweetheart and moving to Atlanta, Searcy embraces big-city life - Carrie Bradshaw style. But now, Searcy has a teeny, tiny problem. Her husband's had a mid-life crisis. He's quit his job, cancelled her credit cards, and left her for another man. Searcy returns to Fairhope, ready to lick her wounds.

What did you love best about Pie Girls?

I really enjoyed sharing the "starting over" experience with Searcy. Love stories where women face and overcome their challenges - especially so creatively.

What does JoBe Cerny and Mary Hollis Inboden bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

Loved the narrators. Captured the accents well.

Who was the most memorable character of Pie Girls and why?

Searcy is memorable, especially her "can do" attitude.

Really enjoyed the characters and sharing their faith. Story was really surprising and reader may feel the story is a fantasy unless you've witnessed the miracles of God.

Would you try another book from Fannie Flagg and/or Fannie Flagg?

I've read three other books by Fannie Flag and loved them. HowIever, this book is one big "whine fest". I did not enjoy the book at all.

What was most disappointing about Fannie Flagg’s story?

Characters were interesting but I did not enjoy the melancholy theme.

What didn’t you like about Fannie Flagg’s performance?

Loved Fannie's performance. Her narration is compelling and the only reason I finished.

What character would you cut from I Still Dream About You?

Would cut Maggie's attitude - not necessarily her character. Rest of characters were absolutely fascinaing.
