A funny family drama with a sprinkle of corporate intrigue, Southern-style.
Welcome to Passcoe, NC, a small, Southern town that's the home of the Quixie Beverage Company. Just about everyone who lives in Passcoe either works at Quixie, the Bayless family business, or is related to someone who does. There's nothing better than a little Southern hospitality served with Quixie cherry soda, gossip, simmering passion, family secrets and a little corporate intrigue.
Annajane is finally ready to take control of her life and leave the small town she grew up in, and still lives and works in with her ex-husband. She's been divorced from Mason Bayless for five years, but has she ever really gotten over him? When Mason's wedding to the scheming Celia is postponed, Annajane has another chance. She just has to decide if she wants it.
Pokey Bayless Riggs always speaks her mind-- much to her mother's horror-- and is determined to play matchmaker and get her brother and best friend back together. The family drama plays out when long-held family secrets come to light, and the beautiful villainess and a greedy younger Bayless brother join forces to sell off Quixie to a company known for looting. Will Annajane and Mason save the family business and have a second chance at true love, or is it just a case of cherry soda-induced Spring Fever?
As always, Mary Kay Andrews crafts the perfect Southern, warm weather read. You'll just fall in love with Annajane and her crazy friends. The only thing missing is enjoying a bottle of Quixie while you read.
Mary Kay Andrews will be in Worthington on Thursday, April 25, 2013 as part of the library's Hear & Now author series!
