“This laugh-out-loud tale serves up Southern-fried humor with a spicy ‘Steel Magnolia’ kick” (Savannah Morning News).
Welcome to the Bottom Dollar Emporium in Cayboo Creek, South Carolina, where items from coconut mallow cookies to Clabber Girl Baking Powder cost a dollar—and the coffee and gossip are free. For the Bottom Dollar gals, work time is sisterhood time. So when news gets out that a corporate-chain competitor is coming to town, they’re thrown into a tizzy, hoping to save their beloved store. Meanwhile the manager is canoodling with the town’s wealthiest bachelor and their romance unearths some startling family secrets.
The first in a series, Bet Your Bottom Dollar serves up a heaping portion of small-town life and a cast of eccentric characters. Pull up a wicker chair, set out a glass of Cheerwine, and immerse yourself in the adventures of a group of women who the Atlanta Journal-Constitution calls “the kind of steel magnolias who would make Scarlett O’Hara envious.”
