Every once in a while, you read a story that you know will stay with you for a long, long time. For me, this is that book. A little bit DRIVING MISS DAISY, a little bit FRIED GREEN TOMATOES, and a small dash of SATURDAY NIGHT LIVE make this one of the most heartfelt-and funny-books that I've read recently. If you haven't read a book in Harlequin's new NEXT line, you need to. And you need to start with DRIVING ME CRAZY.

I loved this funny, poignant tale about a southern woman, her sister and her sassy, elderly mother that is also dying from heart failure in a retirement home. To anybody with an aging mother, you'll be able to identify with the main character, Maggie really well, particularly if you're southern too. The constant "I am an empowered women in charge of my own destiny" platitudes get a bit thick but all in all this is a wonderful book and you should read it.

This is a wonderful book that deals with life in its many stages. Funny and touching. It was nominated for a Pulitzer Prize in 2007.

This book is close to "home" on Mother and Sister relationships. Light reading that keeps you laughing
