Reviews

If you caught your husband-to-be in flagrante delicto, you'd throw a hissy fit, too. With a 12-city author tour. Copyright 2004 Reed Business Information.

"Laced with humor and a sense of place that oozes the aroma of magnolia blossoms."--Atlanta Journal-Constitution
"Readers who enjoy books set in the South that deal with love, friendship, and getting even will find themselves laughing out loud at this latest novel by Andrews."--Library Journal (starred review)
"Southern-fried romp...the furnishing descriptions are scrumptious and the love story's sweet."--Entertainment Weekly

Interior decorator Keeley Rae Murdock has designed her whole life, right down to the antique Oriental rug planned for the foot of her bed. What she never counted on was discovering her fiance, A.J. Jernigan, cavorting with her maid of honor in the middle of her rehearsal dinner. She pitches a hissy fit that reverberates through her tiny hometown of Madison, Ga., and captures the attention of Will Mahoney, a newcomer who recently purchased an antebellum plantation house. Headstrong, freckled Will pressures Keeley to restore the rundown mansion within six months. His plan: to woo a woman whom he has seen only on television by designing the house of her dreams by Christmas. Keeley knows it's an insane plan, but the Jernigans are now trying to put her out of business, so she begrudgingly accepts. As the house comes together, Keeley discovers links between the Jernigan legacy of infidelity and her mother's disappearance many years ago. Darker than the book's fluffy title suggests, this black comedy is riven with shocking secrets. And Keeley's vast knowledge of all things antique offers a fascinating peek into the luscious world of designer home furnishing, sure to make readers drool with envy over sideboards and sofas. Agent, Stuart Krichevsky. (Aug. 22) Forecast: Andrews's Little Bitty Lies built on the success of Savannah Blues, and this sharp Southern treat should bump Andrews up another notch. 12-city author tour.
