“A seven-drawer locked dresser....one for each day of the week. What is in each drawer?....well, all the things Georgia needs to make her nightly lovers believe they are the only one....pictures of their mother, their favorite clothes, anything to make them feel "special." When one of the...”see full review » see other reviews »

“I did laugh out loud once, so yeah, I liked it.
“This is a silly, but entertaining story of a young southern woman who supports herself by entertaining men who have standing appointments once each week. One of her clients was the preacher who felt guilty and eventually blew her cover.”Patsy T wrote this review Sunday, February 17, 2013. ( reply | permalink ) Was this review helpful? Yes | No

“It was cute but not what I was expecting after reading this author's One Mississippi. Geographical places and events (names changed in most instances) were correct and did help hold my interest in the storyline. One mistake made by author was the use of the Alabama Baptist Convention instead of Methodist due to Southern Baptist churches aren't governed by a central body.”Tammy wrote this review Wednesday, August 1, 2012.

“Great book. I love books about Southern women. Set in Six Points Alabama. Georgia is a beautiful faithful churchgoer who has local gentlemen come over for their entertainment, one for each night of the week except Mondays. The local pastor visits Saturday nights. He wants to confess to the congregation and Georgia scrambles to stop this. A very entertaining book. Look forward to reading other novels of Mark Childress.
“This was a very entertaining book. Georgia Bottoms is a plucky woman juggling more things than she has hands for. A very enjoyable read.”Pamala J. Bookhoarder wrote this review Monday, March 26, 2012. ( reply | permalink ) Was this review helpful? Yes | No
“Hmmm...a book about a mistress to several different men...Sounds like it would have been more fun to read than it actually was. It was cute, but not fantastic. ”Sarah C wrote this review Tuesday, February 21, 2012. ( reply | permalink ) Was this review helpful? Yes | No

“Georgia is trying to hang on to her way of life, supporting her half crazy mother , no good brother, and a classic southern home. Things start going nuts and it gets worse from there. OK read, but I never really warmed up to Georgia - I don't think I'd want her as a friend. Narration by Debra Monk was well suited, but some odd pauses.”Bibliobabe wrote this review Thursday, November 17, 2011. ( reply | permalink ) Was this review helpful? Yes | No
