Reading something a little different from the past few weeks. This week's teaser is from Dollar Daze by Karin Gillespie, book #3 in the Bottom Dollar series, published by Henery Press.

"To be fair, Attalee often invited her along on outings with Dooley, but Mavis would just as soon stay home. The two of them were constantly kissing - so loud they sounded like the suction cups of a rubber mat being pried from the tub - and Mavis felt like a fifth wheel."
~ From 4% on my Kindle

Synopsis from Goodreads.com:
Cupid is running rampant in Cayboo Creek, South Carolina, and all the Bottom Dollar Girls have been struck dizzy with his arrows…

When high school heartthrob Brewster Clark returns to town, both Birdie and Mavis are angling for his affections, threatening their long-term friendship.

Ever-so-proper Gracie Tobias meets Rusty the dreamy doctor of her dreams but soon discovers he’s actually a blue-collar duct doctor. Will their wildly different social positions drive a wedge between them? Meanwhile Elizabeth is trying to put the sizzle back to her marriage. Not even octogenarian Attalee is immune to love’s siren call. She gets engaged to beau Dooley and plans a wild bachelorette party and steamy honeymoon.

Traveling love’s rocky road keeps the Bottom Dollar Girls asking, “Is it ever too late for moons and Junes?” Through much laughter and a few tears the girls discover that the answer is a resounding no.

  2. Hmmm...a kiss and a suction cup from a bathtub...somehow sort of ick. LOL

    Sounds like a fun book though.

    1. Reminds me of the way some kids kiss when they are first learning how. It is a fun book. Serious in places, but overall fun.

  4. I love it when series really make you part of the characters' friendship group and it sounds like the Bottom Dollar series does just that! Although it doesn't necessarily sound like my cup of tea I did like the teaser! I'm a new GFC follower :) Thanks for sharing :) I hope you have a great week!

    1. Hope you have a good week too. So far the book is good. Mostly humorous, but the characters feel real with their concerns.

  5. The Bottom Dollar Series sounds like fun. I love the comparison of kissing sounds to removing a rubber mat. Clever.
    My Tuesday post features SAMUEL & SOPHIA.

    1. I had to give it a try after seeing the Sweet Potato Queen, Jill Connor Brown, recommended the first one in the series. It is good imagery there.
