Asheville writer and columnist, Susan Reinhardt will visit City Lights Bookstore on Saturday, August 31st at 3 p.m. to present her new novel, Chimes From a Cracked Southern Belle. Most people think the reason Dee Millings married the best looking man in the Carolinas who turned out to be a complete psycho and near-murderer is because she was raised all wrong. Dee, a 38-year-old heroine to root for, sets out on a path winding with loveable kooks, wanting to prove there is a great life on the other side of tragedy and a crazed ex behind bars who continues to mail threatening letters from prison. Her new adventure begins two years after the crime spree that nearly stopped her heart and left her flat-lining. As Dee begins a journey toward recovery and becoming a registered nurse, a dark secret resurfaces, one that if handled right, could be her ticket to allowing herself to love again. Susan Reinhardt is a syndicated columnist in Asheville, North Carolina, and is a graduate of the University of Georgia. A mother of two, Reinhardt has written three humorous bestsellers, including Not Tonight, Honey: Wait ’til I’m a Size 6. She has also collaborated on numerous anthologies and is a popular speaker and Sarah Palin impersonator. "I love Susan Reinhardt's humor and hilarious characters."

Chosen as a Top Summer Read for 2013 by the University of Georgia, Susan Reinhardt’s novel, Chimes From a Cracked Southern Belle, rings true with rampant humor and unforgettable characters. “In the southern fried voice we’ve come to love from her memoirs, humor columnist Susan Reinhardt goes for the jugular with hilarity and a touch of key lime pie sweetness in her first novel, Chimes From a Cracked Southern Belle. Reinhardt shows her fiction chops in this hilarious, offbeat, and painfully accurate portrayal of one woman’s journey back to sanity in the south.”--Tracy Beckerman, syndicated humor columnist
