Angie Mangiamele runs a film company in Hoboken, New Jersey-a long way (in more ways than one) from Ogilvie, Georgia. But a new project has brought her to this small Southern town, where she stands out like a fire truck in a flower garden. She's been invited to Ogilvie by Miss Zula Bragg, the intensely private literary legend who's agreed to appear in a documentary made by Angie's highly unconventional crew. And there's someone else in own Angie looks forward to seeing: John Grant, a descendant of Ogilvie's founders with whom she had a long-ago summer romance. But John's wedding-to the daughter of a prominent local family-is just days away, and promises to be the sleepy town's social event of the year.
Ms Lippi gave this to me to go with my new LibraryThing membership. I was excited to get it. I loved The Pajama Girls and could not wait to read this one. This one was good, but I still like the Pajama Girls much more. I did not connect as much with the characters of this one. It also bugged me a little because it seemed that everyone was "coming out of the closet" in the book. The characters were very charming and very stereotypical Southern. I am glad that I read it, but I definitely liked Pajama Girls better.Labels: contemporary
