I finally skimmed this book to the finish. The main character drove me crazy. I love to read Frank's book but this one did not appeal to me. ( )

Entertaining and humorous. A pretty quick read that will suck you into the story and make you want to visit the Low country. ( )

Great mix of humor and sadness; I feel the emotions Caroline is feeling. ( )

Full of southern gals with a mixture of sex, sass, and nutty personalities. Caroline is approaching 47 and concerned about her son Eric shacking up with an older single mom. In addition, she is dealing with the drama of her brother’s (Tripp) family (sister in law Frances Mae) who is a drunk and her four nieces who drive her nuts. Of course, Miss Lavinia her dead mother always appears in spirit to guide her as well as she is falling in love with the local sheriff. With the death of Rusty (Trip’s girlfriend) everyone comes together as best they can in this dysfunctional family full of humor and sarcasm. Robin Miles did a great job on the audio as she has the southern wit to play the part perfectly. ( )

Dorothea Benton Frank gives her characters a Southern voice that rings with authenticity. Lowcountry Summer is marked with humor, as offered by the main character of Caroline who meets life's hardship with a dose of sarcasm and wisdom that can only be realized around the kitchen table of a lowcountry plantation. A fun read! ( )
