New York Times bestselling author Carolyn Brown’s heartwarming novel about old rivalries, young love, and a lemon meringue pie to die for.
In Bonnet, Texas, Liddy Latham, the queen of funeral dinners, keeps a southern comfort-food tradition alive—until fancy-schmancy Matilda Monroe moves back to town. She wants room at the table for her own style of consolation and closure: healthy, modern, and vegan. But this is about more than fried chicken versus tofu turkey. Matilda’s return is also stirring up their volatile, unresolved history. And just when they thought it couldn’t get more personal…
Matilda’s son, Nick, and Liddy’s niece, Amelia, have met and the sparks are flying. For Matilda and Liddy, their precious kin’s romance is their worst nightmare. Now, it’s all Nick and Amelia can do to survive a family feud that has the whole town talking.
The battle for the funeral dinner crown is on. As two strong-willed women wrestle for control, making peace with the past may be the only way to serve the star-crossed lovers a happy ending.
Well! Matilda is back in town and stirring up ancient history. Matilda is planning on changing the menu to everything the towndoes. She wants vegan instead of fried chicken…whoever heard of such. But, when her son, Nick has eyes for Liddy, the niece of Matilda’s nemesis, all bets are off!
No one does southern fiction like Carolyn Brown and this book is precious. I read it in one sitting. This story did start out slowly but once the characters became more familiar, I flew through this book.
The cute little quips and southern traditions had me smirking in my airplane seat. Add in the family feud drama and you are in for a cute ride you do not want to miss!
I usually listen to Carolyn Brown’s novels. She has a great narrator and they are perfect for a short trip. So, reading this one was a bit different for me. If you need a different format, audio is the way to go!
