Book Review: I Still Dream About you, by Fannie Flagg.

I just finished listening to I Still Dream About You, Fannie Flagg’s newest book, her first in about 3 years.   It was wonderful

About Maggie Fortenberry, a Real Estate agent, former Miss Alabama, and Miss America second runner-up, who can’t figure out why her life isn’t all she planned and expected.

There were times I found myself laughing out loud on my way to or from work, and times I wanted to set in the parking lot to see what happened next.  

The deceased owner of Red Mountain Realty Hazel Whisenknott, (how does she come up with these names?) died 5 years early but still has a great effect on everyone who knew her.

As the book jacket said   “it is equal parts southern charm, murder mystery, and that perfect combination of comedy and old-fashioned wisdom…”  

I could see this made into a movie; I think it would be as good as Fried Green Tomatoes.

I highly recommend this book.  I give it 5 stars.

You'll be interested to know that switchboard.com has no one in the entire USA named Whisenknott. ~ Tessa
