Publisher's Summary

Not only do Southerners talk slowly, but sometimes the whole language is hard to understand. No one realizes that more than Memphis belle Leelee Satterfield. Since she debuted in Whistlin’ Dixie in a Nor’easter, Leelee has entertained tens of thousands of listeners. Watching her tackle life and love in Vermont was only the tip of the iceberg when it came to antics, charades, mischief, and romance. Now that she’s back in Memphis, and starting a new relationship with Peter, the Yankee chef from her New England inn, you’d think she’d sit back and enjoy her newly crafted life back home in Dixie. But that just wouldn’t be as much fun.
Opening up a new restaurant with Peter isn’t as easy as she had anticipated, especially when it comes to the differences between the North and the South. When Leelee’s ex-husband, Baker, returns unexpectedly, everything else goes haywire. Throw her three crazy best friends into the mix; Riley, her meddlesome next-door neighbor who sells Pampered Chef for a living; and Kissie, Leelee’s beloved second mother who claims Riley sits on her “last raw nerve,” and you have the perfect recipe for a sassy, Southern delicacy.
Lisa Patton's Southern as a Second Language is an endearing and chuckle-inducing tale that keeps us guessing up to the very last page how it all works out in the end. Whether among maple trees in Vermont or magnolia-filled Memphis, Leelee’s charm, heart, and laughter will delight listeners in any climate.

Loved the story hated the reader

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

This is a great wrap up to the light and breezy southern chick lit series by Lisa Patton. I loved that it tied up all the loose ends, but miss the reader from the other two books. Lisa's attempt at accents made listening almost downright painful and if I did love the stories would have probably not made it to the end.

I really tried to like it

This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

Not sure who would like it - it was silly = story was awful


What could Lisa Patton have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

Let someone else read it and make LeeLee not so pathetic.


Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Lisa Patton?

Jenna Lamia - the narrators for Lisa's books did not sound southern and her man voice was like a special ed voice.


What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

disappointment


Any additional comments?

If you promote a book on its "southern-ness" it should be read by an authentic southerner - believe me - southern people don't sound like that - Kissie was the most authentic.
