This book was "OK." I would still recommend it as a light, easy read for those who are looking for something like this. It was a first novel written by a man, which was surprising since it read like chick lit. I expected some twists and turns in the plot, but it turned out to be predictable. What I liked about it: takes place in a small southern town, has a catchy title and an appealing premise, quirky characters and humor. Yes it's corny and a bit trite, but I'm not sorry I read it. Now I'm ready for something completely different! ( )

I listened to this short book on CD. It was humorous and full of real characters. Cute story. Very well read by the reader using various voices. A charming little book. Not on the level of the 5-star books, but still worth a pleasant read. It takes place in a small southern town and is about a group of wealthy widows and old time values in a modern age. ( )

When the Nitwitts (a club for wealthy widows in Second Creek MS) learns that the local Piggly Wiggly will be closing its doors they spring into action to save the local business. Club President Laurie Lepanto asks a charming widower who used to run a dance studio to help. Powell Hampton agrees and a promotional campaign is begun: for two hours each day, the “eligible silver fox” will dance with the ladies while store employees do their shopping for them.

I’ve had this on my tbr for a while. It sounded fun and charming, and it satisfied a challenge. But the reality is that it is poorly written, staid and a chore to get through. I didn’t care about any of the characters. The town is only a cardboard cutout. The women were downright ridiculous. The plot goes nowhere fast and then sits there. The big “secret” isn’t much of one and is tied up far too neatly. In what I can only assume is an effort to make this a romantic story, every once in a while the author throws in a little sex scene. His attempts at humor – the Miss Dixie Floozy contest? Really? – are anything but. Oh, well, at least it was a fast read.

Dalby apparently has fans, however, because there are multiple books in this series. I won’t be wasting time on any of them.

Campy and light. If you liked this you will like 'Bet Your Bottom Dollar'. Thought the recipes at the end were a good addition. ( )
