Publisher's Summary

Southern belle Leelee Satterfield leaves her beloved Memphis to follow her husband's pipe dream: to manage a quaint Vermont inn. But when they arrive, young daughters and ancient Yorkie in tow, they discover pretty fast that there's a truckload of things nobody tells you about Vermont until you live there.

When Leelee is left swindled and snowbound, she's forced to confront the true depth of her Southern grit in this foreign town.

very good story

I really enjoyed listening to the book. I listened on the way to work and almost couldn't make myself get out of the car when I got there. The characters are all very colorful.

Scarlett heads North

Southern women overcoming adversity - NATURALLY!! LeeLee's adventure is worth the read. Not earth shattering literature, but fun. Worth the purchase.

I Loved It !!!!!!

I loved this book, I am a chick lit freak but... this book was soooo much more. SO MUCH MORE!!! The story was fresh, funny, heart warming and the charactors were so vivid. I did not want this book to end. The author has a new book coming out next month and I will buy again (as it is a sequel SO HAPPY!!!!) You will not regret spending a little time in Vermont with this southern belle and her friends new and old!!!!! Like good warm apple crisp and a cup of coffee. Too good to put down!!!!!! Carleyjune

Couldn't finish

I understand there are cultural differences between the north and south in the US, but this story is just insulting. I've lived around the Mason Dixon all my life and traveled both north and south countless times and I have never encountered such rude and disrespectful people as the author has depicted in this story. It's offensive and I just can't stomach hearing any more.

As a Vermonter I’m insulted.

Worst audio book in quite some time. For what it’s worth... don’t advertise a book as featuring Vermont if all you plan to do is disparage the entire state and it’s charming features.

When Two Worlds Collide

This is a sweet story of a mom, wife, friend, and daughter finding her power in the middle of hardship. It ties together both the North and the South in a funny yet entertaining way. Readers beware - those from New England won’t believe the accents of the narrators, and those from the South will love the characters loyalty and allegiance to her forever home town.

Narration😒

1. This narrator is not southern, it’s as if she’s watched or listened to horribly bad actors trying to sound southern to narrate. As a Southerner, I was offended.
2. Narrator’s Vermont accent is more Minnesota - as in NOT a yankee, to the point it became confusing as to where the story takes place.
Both accents were cringe worthy

Both accents were so awful it was hard to listen until the end. Story was sweet but left much to be desired. Had it not been included in audible plus, I would have moved on. Were women so docile 10 years ago?
