review 1: I liked it but I didn't love it. I've read one other Jill Conner Browne book and thought it was HYSTERICAL. This one... not so much. I did enjoy, and will try, many of her recipes. And I agree with her idea of hiring a consultant to delete unfavorable, un-useful and unpleasant "friends" from your life. What I didn't like was her overuse of Southern slang, the drawl, the misspelling of each word. At first it seems charming but after a while it wore thin. There were endless run on sentences and it made finishing the book something of a chore.
review 2: This is the kind of book that you can pick up, read a chapter, get a laugh, maybe find a recipe and then not read for a few days. Jill Conner Browne has the ability to cheer me up even when discussing the mo
... morest serious of subjects. She has a unique and very Southern outlook on life and living it to the fullest. If you never read any of the Sweet Potato Queen Books, you should start with the first....The Sweet Potato Queen's Book of Love, just to provide a foundation. It's the perfect pick-me-up. less

Not for everyone but if you have a weird sense of humor you will love it. I did.
Funny anecdotes. Well written. Better for the older crowd.
Some parts were funny, others were a bit too preachy.
The humor was good but I just couldn't get into it.
