A Dollar Short

This tale of Southern sisterhood is “as tart and delectable as lemon meringue pie . . . A pure delight” (Jennifer Weiner, #1 New York Times–bestselling author).
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 to hole up with famous actress, leaving behind Chiffon, her three children, and a very tiny bank account. When on top of it all Chiffon breaks her ankle, she 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. Now, under the glare of camera lights, the two sisters must try to 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 . . .
