What a fun read! As a former "Southern Belle" relocated to Utah, I can certainly relate to Leelee's dislike of winters that include snow. I guarantee you'll be tickled pink by "Whistlin' Dixie".

Enjoyable and fun--although a little predictable.

Initially I thought the first person narrative was going to be a little self-indulgent, and for the most part it was, but there were moments that nearly brought me to tears, others to laughter. I loved the symbolism of the moose. Some of it was a bit predictable. I definitely did not like the way it ended, as the narrative went from first person to third person, and didn't give closure, unless the author plans a sequel.
