Enter Will, new in town and both single and rich--a perfect new love interest for Keeley, right? Well, not exactly, as he has already fallen head-over-heels for a blond knockout, but he does hire Keeley's interior design firm to renovate a local mansion in order to win over his heart's desire. In the midst of her hectic new work schedule, Keeley finds herself not only questioning her beliefs about love and fidelity but also longing to discover the fate of the mother who left Keeley and her father when she was just a child.
This is a light read but with a breadth and depth rarely seen in this humourous genre. You will laugh, you will think, but most of all, you will enjoy this book.
Like other Mary Kay Andrews stories, this has an element of fairy tale: in this case, restoring a Southern mansion and having access to unlimited funds. There are also several fairy-tale-like antique buys that had me sighing. And then there is the matter of the perfect bra...
A strong sense of place -- of several places, actually -- permeates this light read. If you come away without wanting to visit rural Georgia and several locations of flea markets in the South, you will not have been paying attention. In all these places readers meet up with deftly drawn characters, people you would certainly recognize on the street. The mystery at the heart of the story solves itself in the reader's mind with at least a third of the book to go. But the places and people kept me engaged and laughing out loud until I turned the last page.
Hissy Fit is the story of a young interior designer, Keeley, whose life will be taking a sudden unexpected turn when she finds her fiancé and her best friend in a compromising position the night before her wedding is to take place.
Mary Kay Andrews fills her book with laugh out loud humor, crazy, outrageous behavior and reactions as well as a tender, loving father daughter relationship whose very ground may be rocked by the events that will unfold. She surrounds Keeley with a group of unique and interesting characters that move this book along at high speed. You simply have to turn the page to find out what will happen next, only to be surprised time and again. This is too good not to read!!
The plots, subplots and characters of the novel are all wound together wonderfully. I love the southern setting and the quirky characters of the story. They all seem very real. This story has it all, humor, romance, mystery and a great cast of characters.
