Book Review: Saving CeeCee Honeycutt

Saving CeeCee Honeycutt Book JacketBeth Hoffman's Saving CeeCee Honeycutt is a funny, warm and wonderful little southern novel. You'll love the quirky characters, southern charm and dramatic living. Color, as well as the surroundings, play a large role in CeeCee's story and affect her life.

Twelve-year-old Cecelia Rose Honeycutt has been living with her mother, the 1951 Vidalia Onion Queen. Mrs. Honeycutt loves to wear prom dresses, a tiara, smeared lipstick and red high-heeled satin shoes. Tragedy strikes and CeeCee is suddenly left alone. Her great-aunt, Tootie Caldwell, comes to her rescue in a vintage Packard convertible. She takes her away to Savannah, a charming southern town with lush gardens, dramatic moss-covered trees and warm magnolia scented air.

CeeCee Rose soon meets Oletta, Tootie's wise housekeeper, who later becomes one of CeeCee's friends. She makes the best beaten biscuits and scrumptious iced cinnamon rolls. You will meet the busybody Violene Hobbs, who has the news on everybody, and is often seen in a berry pink dress, and with blonde teased hair. She also meets the exotic Miz Thelma Rae Goodpepper, with red hair piled atop her head and an incredible emerald ring.

So, come along for a wonderful ride with Miss Cecelia Rose Honeycutt for a dramatic journey through Savannah, that will result in an incredible self-discovery.

This story will remind you of the importance of female friendship and finding your passion.

Get ready to sit back on the front porch with a glass of sweet iced tea, with the breeze blowing, and have a good ol' time in Savannah!

I just starting listening to the audiobook and so far it is great! It is narrated by one of the narrators of "The Help" and she does a fantastic job.
