Throwback Thursday Review: Dollar Daze by Karin Gillespie

Romance and relationships are the themes for Dollar Daze by Karin Gillespie. This is the third book in the Bottom Dollar series. All of the women tied together because of the Bottom Dollar store are having issues with romance and relationships.

First off Mavis and Birdie both are trying to get former high school classmate Brewster Clark's attention. Mavis and Birdie are close friends, but will this competition destroy that relationship? Who will end up with Brewster?

Then there is Attalee the octagenarian soda jerk at the Bottom Dollar store. She has found love again. Something she didn't think possible at her age. She ends up engaged to Dooley, a man after her own wild heart.

And then there is Gracie aka Mrs. Tobias. Will her relationship with Rusty, a duct cleaner, be able to survive the difference in their class backgrounds?

Finally, there is Elizabeth who is struggling with the role of stay-at-home Mom. She wants more, but her husband isn't sure that a job outside the home is a good idea.

It's lovely to read how the women interact and what obstacles they face in their pursuit of love and relationships. And it's funny. At times it made me smile, other times laugh aloud. Attalee, in particular, was good for soliciting a laugh. This is southern chick lit at its best.

I gave this book 4 out of 5 stars. It's enjoyable, humorous chick lit. I don't read much like this, but when I do I appreciate the dose of humor with the story. Dollar Daze was published May 12, 2015 by Henery Press.
