What a southern delight this novel was! Whistlin’ Dixie in a Nor’easter tells the story of LeeLee (what else?) Satterfield, the epitomy of the Memphis Belle. Graduate of Ole Miss, daddy a cotton man, lunch at the members-only country club, etc. Imagine her surprise (and horror!) when her perfect husband Baker (what else?) decides that he wants to move the family to Vermont and buy a bed and breakfast. Oh my stars – Vermont! The north, where the Yankees are. But being a dutiful wife (as her mother insisted she should always be) she packs up their two little girls and their dog (Princess Grace Kelly, what else?) and leaves behind her beautiful home and her three best friends (Virginia, Alice,and Mary Jule, what else?), as well as her nanny Kissie (again, what else?) and makes the 1,437 mile trip to the backwoods. Talk about a fish out of water! And then the fun begins…
There is a sequel that I cannot wait to read! I will let y’all know if it is as good as this one!
Good read-alike author: Linda Francis Lee
