You did it again Carolyn Brown, you made me smile in every chapter. Just love the relationships of all the people in this book. Can't wait to read the next one!!
Carolyn Brown always writes such humorous books. There are a couple of little old ladies that makes Small Town Rumors, funny as all get out. Rick doesn't play a front role part in the book, but enough to make it a romance. The story is mainly about Jennie Sue.

After the first few chapters things got slow, boring and repetitive for me. The exaggerated accents, over-emphasis on rumors and more rumors, y'alls and blow-by-blow details of the character's actions was totally overkill. I did not care about the characters, there was not enough depth. And the turns at the end were unbelievable and cliche'd.
I will not be reading another book by Carolyn Brown.
Jennie Sue Baker returns to Bloom, Texas on the bus! Since her family is wealthy and has their own plane, that is grist for the small town rumor mill. Then she has a disagreement with her mother on her future plans – her mother wants her to find another husband - but Jenny Sue wants a job now that she has divorced her cheating thieving abusive husband and graduated from college.
Jenny Sue goes into town and accepts a temporary job cleaning house for her mother’s arch-enemies and moves into a sma ...more
Jennie Sue left Bloom, Texas as the “it girl”. Wealthy, well-mannered, social standout she’s gone to New York with her husband, bound to make a splash. But now, her husband outed as a lying, cheating thief, she’s back in Bloom, in her mother’s house, with a marriage that’s fallen apart, no direction and a handful of alimony cheques that are tagged ‘Insufficient Funds”. Of course, Jennie Sue wasn’t prepared for her fall from grace, and she’s never really been her own person – from her mother’s ir ...more
Being from a small town I could definitely relate to the rumour mill. I really enjoyed Jennie Sue’s journey to find herself after her failed marriage. The dynamics between the characters was great and I loved the building romance between Rick and Jennie Sue.
