Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“Hess does again here what she has done so expertly before: keep a firm hand on outrageous characters whose peccadilloes are worthy of a French farce.”   Publishers Weekly
“Another hilarious episode in a superb series. If you haven’t yet met the denizens of Maggody, there’s no time like the present.”  Booklist
“Much of the charm of the Maggody series lies in its quirky characters and local color. C.J. Critt dives right into this story of a pilgrimage to Graceland…The distinct personalities of the characters are well developed, which is essential in a comedy of manners with a motley crew.”  AudioFile
“[Misery Loves Maggody] is as marvelously giddy as anything in Hess’ first ten chronicles of Maggody, with a core of logic as surprising as a Cracker Jack prize. As even the Tunica cops admit, ‘This is better than a miniseries.’” Kirkus Reviews
