Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“Lisa Patton draws you into each moment of this wonderfully heartbreaking yet hilarious journey of self-enlightenment. Whistlin’ Dixie is truly a page-turner from beginning to end.” Jeff Bridges
“Funny, heartfelt and loaded with southern charm, Lisa Patton’s debut brims with pluck and is filled with memorable characters...You’ll be whistlin’ ‘more, more!’ by novel's end. I promise.” Adriana Trigiani, bestselling author
“Sure to please Adriana Trigiani and Fannie Flagg fans. Filled with colorful characters who prove the South has nothing on the North when it comes to eccentrics…this will have readers eagerly awaiting the sequel.” Library Journal
“This sassy, lighthearted romp twists and turns toward a conclusion that is not at all foregone, but is immensely satisfying. Dixie chicks and damn Yankees alike will enjoy seeing the world through Leelee’s eyes.” Kirkus Reviews
“An amusing, touching novel about a steel magnolia who faces an extreme culture clash and must decide if she wants to set down roots in red clay or snow. Whistlin’ in Dixie in a Nor’easter is a fabulous, feel-good read.” Karin Gillespie, author of Dollar Daze
