    Prepare to Lose this Book

    I have loved this book so much that I lent it and recommended it to friends. They like it so much that they, too, lend it and recommend it. So, it seldom returns to my library. Sharyn McCrumb has written a funny book full of the humor and sorrow of women left behind by their husbands. The husbands left by death, straying to other women, murder, and just plain being inconsiderate. I rolled in laughter at the book while feeling desperately sorry for some of the women involved. Prepare to lose your copies now, buy more than one.

    Light reading, mildly entertaining.

    This was my first experience with Ms. McCrumb's writing. The title grabbed me, encouraging me to purchase it for my Nook. I found the characters likeable, the story believeable, but just not enough intrigue or plot to really keep my attention. I found the Civil War mystery which was interwoven with today's story the more interesting. Fairly good for very light reading.

    Not Her Best

    I usually love Sharyn McCrumb's books, but the bit about the dolphin was totally disgusting. What was she thinking? In my opinion, her best work is She Walks These Hills, The Hangman's Beautiful Daughter, and The Rosewood Casket. I hope she continues to write these mountain-type books.

    If I'd Killed Him....

    I thought this book was THE BEST of her series. I especially liked the part with the dolphin...and what was she thinking? Did she really think SPECIES would make a difference? Unfortunately, I read that book first, & then read the others. I will have to pick up the series & read them from first to last. Good work done by Sharyn McCrumb. I will read every Elizabeth McPhearson book Sharyn McCrumb writes...(I've read them all, though). I hope she hurries & gets a new one out soon.

    I thought the story was okay until the dolphin incident. If this is par for the course for this author, I will not read her again. That was disgusting and unnecessary.
