"Waiting On" Wednesday: Southern as a Second Language

"Waiting On" Wednesday is a weekly event, hosted here, that spotlights upcoming releases that we're eagerly anticipating.

This week's pre-publication "can't-wait-to-read" selection is:


Southern as a Second Language

By Lisa Patton
Publication Date: October 15

From Amazon:

Since the debut of Whistlin' Dixie in a Nor'easter, Lisa Patton's character Leelee Satterfield has entertained tens of thousands of readers. Watching the former-Southern Belle tackle life and love in Vermont was only the tip of the iceberg when it came to antics, charades, mischief, and romance. Now, back in Memphis and beginning a relationship with the namesake of Yankee Doodle Dixie, you'd think Leelee might just sit back and enjoy her newly-crafted life. But that just wouldn't be as much fun . . .
 
Opening up her restaurant with her boyfriend, Peter, proves to be harder than she originally anticipated—especially when her unpredictable best friends are involved! Toss in a lisping neighbor, a male dog named Roberta, and the return of her evil ex-husband who started the whole mess in the first place . . . Well, this is a recipe for just the kind of novel readers expect from Lisa Patton.


What's your "waiting on" pick this week?

Southern as a Second Language has a pretty cute cover. I love her boots! Also, I love when a book is set below the Mason-Dixon Line!

My choice this week is The Winner's Curse by Marie Rutkoski. It has a gorgeous cover and a synospsis that sounds interesting.

Thank you so much for hosting! I look forward to see what you choose next week.
