Georgia Bottoms by Mark Childress

A seven-drawer locked dresser....one for each day of the week.  What is in each drawer?....well, all the things Georgia needs to make her nightly lovers believe they are the only one....pictures of their mother, their favorite clothes, anything to make them feel "special."   When one of the lovers' wives finds out about the affair, nothing to do but empty that drawer....oh well......done.

Georgia had enough of this worry for now...she had her September luncheon to think of.  She couldn't disappoint the ladies...they looked forward to this luncheon each year, and she certainly couldn't let them know how poor she really was. 

She hadn't always been poor, and she hadn’t always been the pillar of society either….but then a letter arrived from someone who was keeping a secret for 20 years and who she told there was NO contact allowed whether it was in writing or through a phone call….this definitely wouldn’t work for her.  Things were not turning out the way Georgia had planned.  Everything ALWAYS went her way...she couldn't have this happen.   She will just send more money this time....yes…send  more money and it would be taken care of, but then she found another letter as she was cleaning and that changed everything even more.  What will she do now?  She knew…she always had a plan….and what a great plan.  You will love the book....it was funny and had everyday situations that at times we all have to deal with.

This book had me laughing from the first page....I knew she was another Scarlet O'Hara even before the author commented about it.  I really enjoyed the book, and will definitely be reading his other books.  5/5

  10. Humor always is a plus when reading a book- a chuckel now and then causes you to desire to keep reading.

    Sounds like a good one!
