Didn't like as much as _Angry Housewives_ or Patty Jane's House of Curl_ by the same author. While the characters are enjoyable, they are a little too quirky and "Lake Woebegone-ish" for my taste. The other two books touched me because I felt like the characters were real. The inhabitants of Tall Pine are too folksy and touch base with reality too seldom. (Maybe Minnesotans are really like that, but this Texan couldn't relate.) Both the other two books are set in Minnesota but for the most part are more universal in their appeal.
