I expected this to be annoyingly twee or Southern-Woman-Is-Mouthy but I was surprised at how...nice...this was. Lots of vignettes with amusing characters and the occasional short story about small towns, tourist locations, schools, etc. Not laugh-out-loud funny but smile funny. I wouldn't go out of my way to read this book, but it wasn't a bad way to spend an hour or two. I have a sense that I read the author's more famous Mama Makes Up Her Mind but now I'm sure I'm confusing it with one of those Sweet Potato Queens books or something. More Jean Shepherd than Dave Barry, and more feminine and kind than Jean Shepherd, but not as drippy as that sounds.
