Publisher's Summary

Meet the Sassy Belles. They're strong as a mint julep, sweet as peach cobbler, and no matter what, they stick together.
There are only two seasons in Tuscaloosa - football and waiting-for-football. When Lewis Heart, football announcer and voice of the Crimson Tide, vanishes after an impromptu romp with Vivi Ann McFadden at the Fountain Mist Motel, Vivi does what any Southern woman would do: Call her best friend, Blake O'Hara Heart, attorney-at-law.
With the town gossip swirling around them, Vivi and Blake are determined to find out what happened to Lewis and clear Vivi's reputation. Because after all, men may come and go, but the Sassy Belles are forever.
Not since Steel Magnolias have we fallen in love with such sexy, strong and hilarious Southern women. So grab your best girlfriends and join these Belles on the first of many joyrides through the Deep South.


Audible Editor Reviews

Beth Albright does a wonderful job of writing strong and clever southern women. The Sassy Belles tells the story of two long-time friends, Blake and Viv, as they try to solve the disappearance of Viv's love interest. Performed by Allison McLemore, The Sassy Belles is hard to pause. McLemore's voice acting nails the lyrical quality of southern speech. She is funny and empathetic, the perfect fit for a book filled with moments of true friendship and hilarious antics.

I did not like Blake. She was immoral and doing adultery and nasty to other characters.

I like the third book in this series the most called SleighBelles.

This character is not someone I would be friends with in real life but it is a good series to give a try.

Refreshingly light, well written and fun

Would you listen to The Sassy Belles again? Why?

Maybe. If I was in the mood for something light, but well written, I would listen again. The plot could be a bit more interesting but I really enjoyed listening to this book.

Who was your favorite character and why?

Vivi. I like her spirited personality. She was also the main focus of the funniest scene. I laughed out loud when she described her " romp" with Lewis.

What about Allison McLemore’s performance did you like?

Her performance was great. I was able to distinguish different characters by her voice alone. Strong performance.

If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

Something about friendship, mystery, infidelity with a cast of fun southern characters. It might need a little more plot development but the characters are fully developed. I would love to see them on the big screen. The characters would make a great sitcom.

Any additional comments?

Worth the credit if you're wanting light southern fun.
