    " I LOVE Celia Rivenbark. She is funny & sassy & someone you would love to have a few mojitos with. Her books are great because each chapter is it's own story. You can read some, put it down for a while, and pick it back up easily. I gave 4 stars because some of the stories within the book aren't as hilarious as others, but I highly recommend all of her books to everyone. She's a Southern trip!!! "

    " There are a few really good gems in this book that had me laughing out loud. A very open sense of self and an ability to find humor in all situations is evident in her writing. Favorite bit was about her daughter's birthday party. "

    " Hilarious! I listened to the audio book with the author doing the reading, and it was laugh-out-loud funny in many places. My favorite part was the first third or so of the book, when her newly purchased old house was undergoing major renovations. Her reading got a bit too fast at times, but that is only a minor quibble in an otherwise extremely pleasant listening experience! "

    " I'd give this a 1.5. I didn't like it nearly as well as the other book of hers I read. I liked it less the more I read. By the end I didn't even want to finish it, but I only had 3 chapters left, so I forged ahead!! "

    " A funny collection of stories, which I assume have been collected from the author's newspaper column. I think I liked the other two books I've read by Ms. Rivenbark better, but there were some funny moments and there are the usual 'southern-isms'. This was a quick read. "
