Whistlin' Dixie in a Nor'easter by Lisa Patton

4 stars
R- 2

Let me start by saying I was not expecting to like this one.  It's not really my style.  It's one of those Reader's Choice books that I just put my head down and plow through for the sake of getting it read.

But I was pleasantly surprised.  I ended up liking it quite a bit.

Granted, Leelee is kind of obnoxious in a "will you just stand up for yourself already" kind of way.  And I'd KILL my husband if he acted like that.  But still, it was kind of a fun story.

Definitely chick lit or a domestic drama (which really is kind of a lame genre tag) but a good one. ;)

And really, even though Leelee is in the 30-35 range, it's kind of a coming of age story too. 

Counts for the Reader's Choice (finished it in October) and Support Your Local Library challenge.
