Description

“A Dollar Short is meant to entertain, and it does.” Diane Whiter, Boston Globe

It isn't every day a movie star steals your husband. When that day comes for Chiffon Butrell of Cayboo Creek, South Carolina, she looks to the Bottom Dollar Girls to help her out of one fine mess.

With three kids to feed and Lonnie's paycheck from the NutraSweet plant being forwarded to a California address, Chiffon is coming up more than a dollar short. There's just one thing to be done—call on her estranged older sister, Chenille. As crisis reigns, Chenille is welcomed by the Bottom Dollar Girls for her cool head and quick thinking. And when Chenille runs into a little trouble of her own, she begins to see the future in friendship. A rollicking, hilarious novel about two sisters who are each one of a kind, A Dollar Short is a delicious page-turner worth every last cent.
