Editorial Reviews

From Publishers Weekly

"Laughter and tears are said to cleanse the soul. I should have the cleanest in the South," muses Bertie Byrd, the plucky heroine of this slapstick, folksy novel. When Bertie, who works at her father's auto repair shop, isn't under a car, behind the wheel of her tow truck or reluctantly ferrying the nutty residents of Sweet Meadow, Ga., around town, she's surviving or recounting scrapes. She fends off the advances of her best friend Mary Lou's smarmy cousin, horrified by his not so funky moves on the dance floor at the Dew Drop Inn. She arrives home from the bar to discover her demented, elderly landlord, Pete Forney, naked in her recliner. (He becomes a repeat intruder.) She fumes over official notices forbidding her to park her wrecker in her driveway, only to discover a dead man has mysteriously issued the decree. Could her life get any wackier? Enter Jeff, her sexy but shady new boyfriend, a mill worker who also moonlights as a stripper. Soon, Bertie is also fending off a stalker, who sends threatening letters signed "Jack." But Bertie is fortified by the love of dear friends and family, as well as that of a good man. Though Wilson's down-home prose can sometimes cloy, her debut novel is an affectionate chronicle of one woman's discovery that commitment, support and trust are closer than she thought. (Apr.)

From School Library Journal

Adult/High School–Bertie drives a tow truck for her father's auto shop in the small town of Sweet Meadow, GA. All she wants is to live a normal life, to find the man of her dreams, settle down, and escape the wrath of her church's Garden Club members. That's not easy to accomplish when the town's residents view her wrecker as a taxi service and will do anything to get a ride. It's not easy when an airplane rolls over her hand, breaking it, and her brother moves in with her while he's estranged from his wife. And it's definitely not easy when the elderly owner and previous resident of her house constantly sneaks out of the nursing home to visit. If she's lucky, he's in his pajamas. After an accident with a mattress makes the national news, Bertie begins receiving threatening letters full of wacky tips from her stalker, Jack. Readers will laugh as she heads downtown to file for a permit to park her vehicle in her driveway, only to discover that the official notices forbidding her to do so were signed by a dead man. Although Wilson's debut novel can sometimes seem over-the-top, it's still a wonderful read. Bertie is a true Southern woman, able to survive at any cost, and to do it with style. Readers will relate to her as she muddles through life and ultimately finds that commitment, love, support, and trust are closer than she thought.–Erin Dennington, Fairfax County Public Library, Chantilly, VA
