Waltzing at the Piggly Wiggly Publisher's Summary

You're invited...
To the charming Delta town of Second Creek, Mississippi, known for its chatty citizens, unusual weather phenomena, and elegant ballroom dancing in the most unlikely places.

Laurie Lepanto is on the horns of a dilemma. For generations, the Piggly Wiggly has been Second Creek's community center and town hall, and has even seen a little romance blossom in its aisles. But thanks to the new MegaMart across town, the Piggly Wiggly's owner, confirmed bachelor Hale "Mr. Choppy" Dunbar, may be forced to close this small-town landmark.

To save the Piggly Wiggly, Laurie enlists her fellow "Nitwitts", a formidable array of the town's most influential ladies. The Nitwitts are hopelessly devoted to the Piggly Wiggly, and are determined to help in any way possible. Laurie's plan, however, needs one more person: the town's most eligible silver fox, Powell Hampton, a handsome widower and former ballroom dance instructor. For two hours a week, Powell will waltz, or foxtrot, or tango, at the Piggly Wiggly with Second Creek's ladies while the salesclerks do their shopping for them.

In a town like Second Creek, where everyone knows everyone, waltzing at the Piggly Wiggly soon becomes the town's most festive event, even offering Mr. Choppy the chance to shed the weight of his past. And after a few turns around the floor with the charming Powell, Laurie begins to make plans for romance as well as civic renewal.
