The colorful characters of Partonville, Illinois, are back once again to delight Charlene Ann Baumbich's ever-growing legion of fans. Dorothy is thrilled that her attorney son Jacob is moving back to their hometown and wonders if he might help Katie Durbin with more than legal matters. Meanwhile, Partonville's mayoral elections have just heated up. Incumbent Gladys McKern is being challenged by Sam Vitner, owner of Swappin' Sam's, whose campaign slogan is "McKern's had her turn! Time to SWAP! VITNER for Mayor!" And the contest to name Katie's new mini-mall incites competition and a mad dash of entries. Through it all, Dorothy's spirit and the Partonvillers' antics will keep readers wanting to circle the town square again and again.
"Dearest Dorothy, If Not Now, When? (Dearest Dorothy, #6)" Reviews
I have enjoyed these books set in a small town in northern southern Illinois. I find them peaceful, like a visit with friends and assorted quirky characters. Nothing much happens except life with its changes, difficulties, and challenges. And everything works out at the end, which might not be realistic, but it is believable that things could turn out that way.
Dorothy is a Dearest
Dorothy fixes everything for everyone, but she is not a gossip or a busy body. This is a thoroughly delightful book about a small town that becomes divided over the conversion of an empty old building into a mini mall of boutique type shops by a woman who grew up there, left and made it big, and has returned. Jake, Dorothys son, a high powered lawyer, has also moved home to a more simple life. They become involved in fighting those who want to keep the town totally back in time and close the mall. The fight would put a totally unqualified man in as mayor. Dorothy steps in and works out a plan to gather forces and the fun goes on. They include getting another one over a big time developer. Really fun romp and you'll see why Dorothy is Dearest!!!
Once again, I have been wafted off on the wings of Charlene Baumbich and her Dearest Dorothy! The characters have become my neighbors, and I'm waiting for my invite to join the Happy Hookers!
Audiobook performed by Cynthia Darrow. More Christian than I usually enjoy, but a highly accurate, nostalgic and enjoyable picture of small town folks.
Read my review of series on my review of book one.
Dearest Dorothy, If Not Now, When? • by Charlene Ann Baumbich
(Dearest Dorothy, series #6)
The story is often MBS, major boring sh*t and various characters engage in overreaction nonsese. For example, a kid who owns his own car and has a job is pulled over by the cops for minor speeding. The cops let him go with a verbal warning. The kid is guilted into telling his mom since, "God knows what you did" and she grounds him for it. What? The encounter with the cops and the warning wasn't enough? This wasn't racing or GTA. If he actually did something wrong, what then, cut off a finger? Ha!
It's hard to plod through this home town, worse than Mayberry, drivel.
This is the Dearest Dorothy series, book #6 and the dear, 88 year old Dorothy's life in her little town of Partonville, Illinois. There's plenty of small town humor and nostalgia. This rendition includes a naming contest for the new mini-mall and Dorothy's 50+ year-old son Jacob, has left his law firm and is back to apply his craft as the town's attorney.
Mayor Gladys McKern has a challenger in the upcoming mayoral election. Her challenger is Sam Vitner, who comes up with a less than memorable campaign slogan. Wanting to incorporate the name of his business Swappin' Sam's into the slogan, he decides on, "McKern's Had Her Turn - Time To Swap Vitner For Mayor."
