This book is such a fun and quick read, and I would definately recommend her newest one A DOLLAR SHORT. The little sayings at the beginning of the chapters are quite funny.

Bet Your Bottom Dollar : A Bottom Dollar Girls Novel is the first in the Bottom Dollar Girls' series. The story takes place in a small South Carolina town that is having an unwelcome growth spurt. The Bottom Dollar Emporium is being threatened by a large chain store. The girls have to work together to save their store. It is a funny book with a little romance.

From Booklist
In a first novel that is guaranteed to please Fannie Flagg and Bailey White fans, Gillespie introduces the Bottom Dollar Girls with a flair for timing and a cheeky southern turn of phrase. Meet Elizabeth Polk, 26, in her natural habitat, the Bottom Dollar Emporium in Cayboo Creek, South Carolina, where she works with widowed store owner Mavis Loomis and Attalee Gaines, who's "knee deep in her eighties." On the mend from a sudden breakup with her fiance and busy cooking up plans to fight the store's competition, Elizabeth isn't looking for romance--but that's what she gets when one of her wealthy customers pushes Timothy Hollingsworth on her, complete with billiard-ball head and Hare Krishna robe. But 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. Jennifer Baker
