Hissy Fit will actually be an excellent read for those who DON'T prefer a lot of romance in their novels.
There was much to enjoy in this book; Keely is lead character who is smart and good at her job, doesn't take any crap from the man who does her wrong (not wishy washy) and doesn't let others bully her. I really appreciated that Mary Kay Andrews wrote a character that I really liked.
The book focuses on the restoration of an old plantation home which I think many readers would enjoy. But I found myself skimming the last fourth portion of the book once I realized there would be no development in the romantic relationship between Keeley and Will. Their romance consisted of three pages although I will admit it was a sweet three pages.
Anyway, if you are a reader of straight up romance novels I would not recommend Hissy Fit. But for you other readers, I think it would be a great novel.
I dont like to read yearning, burning romances. This is NOT one of those. The back cover has a review that accurately tells it all,"the right combination of romance, mystery, and sharp funny writing." Not one of those themed mysteries either. (I do like those). It is a book with a blend of reality that is refreshing and not painted on screwball dialogue or situations. But you always got to have a dog and a gay best friend, too. The characters are memorable and distinct from each other. Add what I have to say with some of the other summaries and I think you will, get the idea that this book is worth reading.
A good read, especially if you know about antiques and decorating, and even if you aren'tt, it's still fun to read and figure out what things really are.
This was one of the funniest books I had read in a long time. One of the authors best.
Small town people in messy life situations, each following their own drummer. Anyone who grew up in a small southern or midwest town will recognize people from their past. Loved it.
One of the most enjoyable reads I've read in a long time. It starts out with a bang and doesn't stop.
