What's not to like? Colorful and mostly likeable characters make this 2nd book in the series just as enjoyable as "Bet Your Bottom Dollar," the 1st in the series.

I usually avoid romance fiction like the plague, mostly the bodice-ripper type or the kind that has woman/girl pining weepily after the hot patootie that happened to smile at her one day. Worse yet is the love triangle or the dreaded "insta-love". However, I'm not entirely immune to the appeal of romance especially the lighthearted, humorous, dare-I-say-it-chick-lit sort found in books like Dollar Daze by Karin Gillespie. This is the third book in the Bottom Dollar series (trilogy?) which is just good old Southern fiction focused on a group of women who become friends through their connections to the Bottom Dollar Emporium, an old-fashioned general store in Cayboo Creek, South Carolina, just over the border from Augusta, Georgia. This is the precursor to today's dollar stores albeit with a whole lot more charm, the kind of store you see in small towns all across America (and can't resist dropping in). This somewhat motley crew of women, ranging from young Elizabeth Hollingsworth struggling with being a stay-at-home mom to 80-something-year-old Attalee Gaines who is still feeling every oat she ever had are really appealing to me, maybe because their lives are so very normal. In this episode, love is in the air or, rather, the pursuit of love and Attalee, with her upcoming nuptials to 78-year-old stud Dooley Prichard, has inspired widows Mavis Loomis and Birdie Murdock to test the dating waters again. Unbeknownst to them, their friend, Mrs. Tobias. may have found her own stimulation in bad boy Rusty Williams who goes against every fiber of her upbringing. I couldn't help but sympathize with Elizabeth's seeming inability to find happiness at home after having an energizing marketing job and I followed her path with interest but it was the romantic adventures of the other ladies that kept me engaged. There's heartache and jealousy and a great deal of smiling to be had in this story and I thoroughly enjoyed the time I spent with these ladies in the charming town of Cayboo Creek. I intend to go back and read the first two books and I'm just sorry that there doesn't seem to be any chance of more. On the other hand, since Henery Press has re-issued the first three, maybe...?

What an entertaining book! Four senior ladies are brought to life in this amusing story. Some have been friends since childhood, some are fairly new friends, but the laughter and the love between them is heartwarming. Every senior lady needs 2 or 3 friends like this. The personalities range from a lady from a very wealthy background, but no one knows, to the owner of the Bottom Dollar Emporium, a variety, candy store and a soda fountain, whose best friend Birdie works there. Birdie is a feisty 80 year old who is planning her wedding. This is the 3rd book in the Bottom Dollar Series. I haven't had a chance to read the other books, but I'm fairly certain that they're as good as this one.

Great Series! This is a great series; this is the third book in The Bottom Dollar Series by Karin Gillespie. This book can be read as a standalone but once you read one you will want to go read them all. This book continues with the girls who work in the Bottom Dollar shop in the small town of Cayboo Creek, South Carolina. If you are looking for a great book with humor and southern grit then you need to read this book. I am looking forward to reading the next book in this series.  A Review copy was provided to me in exchange for a fair and honest review. The free book held no determination on my personal review.

This is my first book to read by Author Karin Gillespie. I thoroughly enjoyed reading Dollar Daze. It was entertaining and humorous, but showed a group of friends that were true to their friendship. This book captured my attention from the beginning and I was totally involved in their lives. Dollar Daze is Book Three from The Bottom Dollar Series. You can read this as a stand alone book, but I would urge you to read Books One and Two as I will. I believe they are great books just like Book Three, Dollar Daze. I highly recommend reading this book from Author Karin Gillespie. I received a complimentary copy from the publisher through NetGalley in exchange for my honest review. This review is one hundred percent my opinion.

It is a sweet and innocent read. If you are looking for something that is filled with small town humor, this is it. This is definitely "gentle fiction", that is good for the soul. Very cute characters that you end up cheering for.
