    This hilarious, tongue-in-cheek tale of how Bonnie Lou Ladner so

    This hilarious, tongue-in-cheek tale of how Bonnie Lou Ladner solves a murder in fictional Missing County, Tennessee, comes right from the horse's lipsticked mouth. Bonnie Lou is a former beauty queen and current beauty shop owner whose main goal in life is to hold on to her man, the hunky County Sheriff, and make his life happy. When an unsolved murder threatens his peace of mind, not to mention the opening day of deer hunting season, Bonnie Lou springs into action and saves the day. Along the way, we are treated to her words of wisdom and blunt opinions on everything from makeup to mayhem, including advice from the fictional "A Southern Gal's Guide to Keeping Her Man." Not your ordinary murder mystery; you'll hoot and holler over this one!

    Annoying inner dialogue

    It was an ok book. The main characters inner dialogue got annoying. Cute idea, but way too much. I love quick light reads (what I live on!) but I only reason I finished was because I cant leave a book undone.

    One more down

    I bought ALL of Annie Acorn's books after reading one, I throughly enjoyed. I have read most of them and while this one was better then most have been, it was still a bit silly. But sometimes a silly book is a good thing, we all need to cut loose once in a while and enjoy a laugh, a cup of coffee and a chocolate biscotti. I have three main objections to make about this 435 page book. The first is personal, I have a great dislike for first person books, I get annoyed almost from the first page, I do not like someone telling me who, what, when, where, and why, while I am trying to read. Second, the main character actually talks to the reader, so inane. Third was the often used phrase," (but) I digress." All three are pet peeves of mine. I also did not care for the list of rules for southern ladies, but I can tolerate that one. This book was actually pretty well edited. It has an excerpt at the end, which is for another book about Bonnie Lou. There is very little violence, no cursing or sex. This is just a silly, light hearted, fun book, good for a rainy day or when the reader needs a pick me up. Recommended for ages sixteen and up. Geared more to women readers. Read it and laugh.

    Not so hot...

    A quick,light read but a little silly for my taste. Some repetitive writing and not much character development.
