THOSE PLAIN-SPEAKING, CHEEKY BOTTOM DOLLAR GALS RETURN... "As tart and delectable as lemon meringue pie...a pure delight." - Jennifer Weiner, Author of Good in Bed, In Her Shoes, and Little Earthquakes It isn't every day a movie star steals your husband. When that day comes for Chiffon Butrell of Cayboo Creek South Carolina, she looks to the Bottom Dollar Girls to help her out of one fine mess. Husband Lonnie has run out to Hollywood and holes up with famous star Janie-Lynn Lauren. He's left behind Chiffon, her three children and a very tiny bank account. Chiffon breaks her ankle and has to rely on her estranged sister Chenille to lend a hand. When the tabloid media gets wind of her husband's torrid romance, sleepy Cayboo Creek lands on the star map. Under the glare of camera lights, the two sisters must put aside longtime grievances to forge a newfound relationship. Meanwhile the rest of the gang is cooking up a questionable scheme to raise money for the senior center. The Bottom Dollar Girls are back and in fine form in this hilarious sequel to Bet Your Bottom Dollar. Praise for A DOLLAR SHORT: "Those plain-speaking, cheeky Bottom Dollar gals return with more rollicking adventures in Cayboo Creek, South Carolina...Never a dull moment...this fast-paced screamer of a romance begs a giggle, if not a guffaw." - Booklist "Laugh-out-loud antics as...Gillespie continues her entertaining Bottom Dollar Girls series...Certain to please women's fiction fans of all ages." - Romantic Times (Top Pick) "A fine romp of a book, well-written and thoroughly entertaining." - The Winston-Salem Journal "A hilarious saga of loss, sisterhood and the will to survive." - Tucson Citizen "Bet you a dollar you'll laugh...This is a book to treat yourself with-and then share with sisters and friends." - The State (Columbia, SC) "A Dollar Short is meant to entertain, and it does.
