"Welcome to Quinn, Montana, population: 956. A town where nearly all of the volunteer firemen are named Jim, where The Dirty Shame--the only bar in town--refuses to serve mixed drinks (too much work), where the locals hate the newcomers (then again, they hate the locals, too), and where the town softball team has never even come close to having a winning season. Until now. Rachel Flood has snuck back into town after leaving behind a trail of chaos nine years prior. She's here to make amends, but nobody wants to hear it, especially her mother Laverna. But with the help of a local boy named Jake and a little soul-searching, she just might make things right"--Amazon.com.

This book was a real disappointment. I chose to read it based on many rave reviews and 'best of' lists, however, I found the novel cliched and boring. The characters are more caricature than not, making it difficult to relate to them. The writing lacked clarity, the dialogue was trite and this comic novel? satire? or farce? left no lingering laughs or insights.

Across the street, Gene Runkle, another refugee from the Dirty Shame, waved an unlit sparkler in one hand, and a miniature American flag in the other, The people around him could tell this was not patriotism, just alcoholism. They moved away as fast as they could. p. 256
