Whistlin' Dixie in a Nor'easter

This is the book I should have been reading during our snowy weather - at least the title fits. Lisa Patton's debut novel is a fun read I enjoyed from it's first page.

Leelee Satterfield has the perfect life: two beautiful children, a wonderful, charming husband, great girlfriends, and a home in Memphis, Tennessee, where she grew up. When her husband, Baker decides that they should move to Vermont and run a bed and breakfast, Leelee follows along, despite her reservations.

Things don't turn out as Leelee or Baker expect. Baker's high expectations and enthusiasm are dashed while Leelee has to call upon her inner strength to make it through some hard times.

I rushed through the end of this book this morning just so I could find out how Leelee's life turns out. The ending was not disappointing, but not as clear cut as I wanted, either. To say more would give things away, but anyone looking for a good book to curl up with on a cold (or hot) day, should give Whistlin' Dixie in a Nor'easter a try.
