During an early morning discussion at Dees 'n' Doughs bakery with their ladies group, all Chapel Springs entrepreneurs, attention is drawn to the slackened tourist trade. With their livelihoods threatened, they join forces to address the town's revitalization in hopes of drawing back the tourists. No one could have guessed the real issue needing restoration is their marriages.
Claire, a pottery artist, stumbles through life with her foot in her mouth. When she became a Christian, she thought life and her marriage would be included in the new creation part. But her thighs are just as big, and her husband, Joel, is as ornery as ever. She's become nothing more than a sheet changer, a towel folder, and a pancake flipper. Her life is humdrum, and she's tired of being taken for granted.
Patsy has plans for her empty nest, plans that include a cruise ship. However, her husband, Nathan, continues to work long hours, and he's not talking about slowing down. In fact, he's not talking much at all. She's asleep long before he comes home each night. At first, she thought it was just because of tax season, but now she's not so sure. Something other than work seems to keep him late at the office every night. With the lines of communication closed, she'll have to find another way to reach him.
With their marriages as much in need of restoration as the town, Claire and Patsy embark on a mission of mishaps and miscommunication, determined to restore warmth to Chapel Springs and their lives. That is if they can convince their husbands and the town council, led by two curmudgeons who would prefer to see Chapel Springs left in the 50s and closed to traffic.

This was a funny novel about two good friends and their small town needing a make over. At the same time they think their lives might just need to be re-booted as well.I laughed as I followed their adventures and mis-adventures as well. Lessons learned along the way were well done. The Southern humor was an added bonus.

Great story and perfect narration
The story drew me into the lives of the friends in Chapel Springs. It is woven so beautifully that I could easily picture the people and events in my mind. The narration is clear, and the characters are quickly brought to life with the narrator's inflection. You will laugh and cry as you journey through this story of friendship and love.
