Whistlin' Dixie in a Nor'easter - Lisa Patton I read this book only because of the Southern connection, and the fact that it was recommended to me. While some parts of it were slightly amusing, the author overplayed the Southern rich belle trope a bit much. I can identify with some of her Southernisms (aversion to cold weather, unfamiliarity with Vermont culture), but I was never part of a wealthy country club, so I did not particularly identify with that part of her life; in fact, initially, I found her to be a bit of an off-putting snob. By the end of the book, I was really annoyed with the main character overall; she was so hysterical, at times. The ending itself was somewhat unbelievable, given the way that the story was building until then. I wanted to like it more than I did.
