    Atlanta Journal-Constitution

  • “Laugh out loud…This perfect summer read [will] find permanent beach-house residence.”

    Richmond Times-Dispatch

  • “This heartwarming story will make you feel that you’ve made new friends and found a new neighborhood to visit. Carrington MacDuffie’s charming and sweet Southern drawl adds to the hominess and appeal of each character…The only problem with this audiobook is that it ends too soon!”

    AudioFile

  • “Romance in strange packages is only one of the many surprises in this charming Cinderella story about a feisty ‘princess’ who fights dragons (big business) and wins hearts. Brace for a wild ride chock-full of southern wit and down-home advice from a clutch of quirky characters you will hope to see again soon.”
