This is the third book by Karen White that I've read. They all have similar settings in Southern US, and all have similar themes of family dramas and relationships, but she doesn't enter the realm of predictable Chick Lit. She manages to make her stories interesting and real, which is why I keep turning to her novels again and again. I always recommend her to anyone who likes Chick Lit, but also likes some serious reading as well. It's a good distraction from day to day life, without making you think that men have no brains and women are all helpless.
