Overview

Julia Darrow runs a thriving business in South Carolina, has a houseful of foster dogs-and she wears designer pajamas all day, every day.

John Dodge makes a living moving around the country, fixing up small businesses on the brink of disaster. His newest venture takes him to South Carolina, where he's greeted by an odd sight: Julia Darrow, walking across Lambert Square, in pajamas.

Intrigued, Dodge asks Julia out to dinner only to be refused. The townsfolk warn him that Julia is an unsolvable mystery, but Dodge likes mysteries, and he's really good at fixing things...

    Our Library Book Group recently read "The Pajama Girls of L

    Our Library Book Group recently read "The Pajama Girls of Lambert Square".  While the majority of us found it slow to start
    we found that once the story unraveled and the characters became more developed, we became more invested in the story. 
    Touching, funny and mysterious at times, "Pajama Girls" was a light read we all enjoyed.

    A Very Good Read! - Hard to Put Down...

    This is one of my favorite kind of novels. I love novels set in small southern towns with interesting characters and the author has done an excellent job of bringing her main characters to life. This is just a great read - not complicated and won't win a Nobel prize for literature but it is one great story - one of those that was hard to put down and that I hated to see end. All the characters were well fleshed out and it made me want to go find Lambert Square and find a place there for myself. If you liked "The Help" you will love this book.

    Fun, engaging read. Good for book clubs

    Purchased to read for our monthly book club. Provides plenty of topics for discussion including characters, plot and themes. Enjoyable, quick read. Must order online, found it difficult to find in the bookstores.

    entertaining warm regional romance

    Two years after he arrived in Amarillo, Texas where John Dodge bought the failing business WordPlay Books and turned it profitable before recently selling it as he always does. His sister worries about John¿s inability to settle down in one place, but John starts anew in Lamb¿s Corner, South Carolina. He bought Scriveners stationary from retiree Robert Lee Cowper with the stipulation that he keeps the two employees on board for two years. When he arrives at Lambert Square where his store is located, he begins his efforts to fit in as best as an outsider can. He gets on with seemingly everyone, but it is the president of the Merchant¿s Group, Julia Darrow who he finds he desires, a feeling alien to him. She runs and owns the every popular Cocoon that sells exclusive linen and other bedroom paraphernalia, which she and her three employees advertise as THE PAJAMA GIRLS OF LAMBERT SQUARE. Whereas he is falling in love, she mistrusts that emotion having run from Chicago knowing that a dog is a woman¿s best friend. Now John has someone he wants to settle down with, but Julia rejects his advances though his kisses make her reconsider as the townsfolk matchmake them wondering who will retreat and surrender. --- This is an entertaining warm regional romance starring two likable protagonists fleeing differently from their respective pasts. Whereas John lives up to his surname dodging commitment like a rolling stone Julia buried her past settling for eccentricity and dog rescuing in one remote place. An eccentric support cast wants both to stay as they have brought life to a dying small South Carolina town. Fans will appreciate Rosina Lippi¿s wonderful contemporary that affirms ¿home is where the heart is¿. --- Harriet Klausner
