Graciela "Ace" Jones is mad-mad at her best friend Lilly who cancels their annual trip to Panama City for mysterious reasons; at her boss Catherine for "riding her ass like a fat lady on a Rascal scooter;" at her friend Chloe's abusive husband; and especially at Mason McKenzie, the love of her life, who has shown up with a marriage proposal three years too late. Ace is never mad, though, at her near-constant companion, an adorable chiweenie dog named Buster Loo. Ace's anger begins to dissipate as she takes matters into her own hands to take down Chloe's philandering husband-and to get to the bottom of a multitude of other scandals plaguing Bugtussle, Mississippi. Then, she starts to realize that maybe Mason deserves a second chance after all. With a sharp and distinctive voice, Stephanie McAfee delivers a hilarious and fast-paced tale about Ace Jones and her two best friends-thick as thieves and tough as nails-navigating Southern small-town politics and prejudices, finding love, and standing up for each other all the way.

"Graciela "Ace" Jones, a slightly overweight kick-ass art teacher, lives in Bugtussle, Mississippi, with her dog, Buster Loo Bluefeather. Ace has been in love with hunky Mason McKenzie most of her life. This fast-paced romp lives up to the promise of its title. Cassandra Campbell doesn't even try for a Southern accent for the main characters and gives them little vocal differentiation. Instead, she relies on the story and her acting chops, which are considerable, to carry the day. The result is a fun and witty bit of chick-lit. A.C.P. (c) AudioFile 2012, Portland, Maine"
