Publisher's Summary

Nonny Frett understands the meanings of "rock" and "hard place" better than any woman ever born. She's got two mothers, "one deaf-blind and the other four baby steps from flat crazy". She's got two men: her husband, who's easing out the back door; and her best friend, who's laying siege to her heart in her front yard. She has a job that holds her in the city, and she's addicted to a little girl who's stuck deep in the country. To top it off, she has two families: the Fretts, who stole her and raised her right; and the Crabtrees, who lost her and can't forget that they've been done wrong. In Between, Georgia, population 90, a feud that began the night Nonny was born is escalating, and a random act of violence will set the torch to a 30-year-old stash of highly flammable secrets. This might be just what the town needs, if only Nonny wasn't sitting in the middle of it.

Great listen!

I don't usually like books narrated in a southern accent, but I can't imagine this book being read by anyone other than the author. I looked forward to every time I had a chance to listen and didn't want the book to end. The characters were quirky, and not all likeable, but always interesting. Flawed yet somehow loveable. The story line had enough twists to keep it interesting. I hate to go to the gym and only go so I can listen to a book; this one got me there more often than any other in a long, long time!

Between, Georgia

Enjoyable storyline with family connections and love interests. I would classify this as a good "Chick Flick". Good to listen to or read on vacation or in the car. Glad I purchased it.
