Saving Cee Cee Honeycutt

I tend to pick up books that are set in the south. I guess I find them relateable. In Beth Hoffman's book, Saving Cee Cee Honeycutt, you will find Steel Magnolias meets The Help in this Southern debut novel sparkling with humor, heart, and feminine wisdom. Author, Hoffman's debut, a by-the-numbers Southern charmer, recounts 12-year-old Cecelia Rose Honeycutt's recovery from a childhood with her crazy mother, Camille, and cantankerous father, Carl, in 1960s Willoughby, Ohio.
After former Southern beauty queen Camille is struck and killed by an ice cream truck, Carl hands over Cecelia to her great-aunt Tootie. Whisked off to a life of privilege in Savannah, Ga., Cecelia makes fast friends with Tootie's cook, Oletta, and gets to know the cadre of eccentric women who flit in and out of Tootie's house.

Oh My Gosh Sweetie...
This is a book I think I would love. I wish I was going to be in the area of Alabama in March, but no such luck. I will purchase the book though, it sounds just like my kind of story. I'll keep you posted.

Thanks for sharing. Country hugs, Sherry

I'm glad to see your review of this book. I'm about finished with THE HELP and I'm loving it. I think this one will go on my list of TBR!

Sounds like a really good book. We're finally getting a Kindle and I'll be able to easily download books rather than waiting weeks or months for them to be shipped. Woot!
