Publisher's Summary

Award-winning journalist Charlene Ann Baumbich delights millions with her endearing Dearest Dorothy novels.

In the quaint Southern Illinois town of Partonville, 88-year-old Dorothy and a colorful cast of townsfolk are all aflutter about a former resident's return, a mini-mall naming contest, and a spirited mayoral campaign.

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. 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. And excitement builds as incumbent mayor Gladys McKern squares off against a surprising and innovative challenger whose powerful campaign slogans trigger a flurry of emotions in a race that's too close to call.

Dearest Dorothy is a wonderful series!

I have listened to all of the Dearest Dorothy books. The characters are so funny and I was instantly hooked on both the author and narrator (Cynthia Darlow)!
