And she's reconnected with her old high school sweetheart, too. No one is more shocked by Maggie's behavior then her tight-knit, by-the-book Southern family. Her twin seventeen-year-old daughters are mortified and her grandmother is refusing to speak to her. Of course, Betty is stuck in the middle of it all. But when Betty unexpectedly meets someone special, she soon discovers for herself that the course of true love is never smooth. With a little encouragement from her best friend and some newly discovered inner strength, Betty comes to grips with her own happiness and helps Maggie do the same. In its heartwarming and uplifting finale, Betty Sweet Tells All proves that even in the most troubled times, true love and family prevail."
Maggie Sweet has had it! For nineteen years, she's kept house, raised a pair of battling twin daughters, put up with her frugal husband, Steven, humored his impossible mother, and kept her mouth shut. But when Steven spends their life savings on a cemetery plot, it's time for Maggie to take control. With her twenty-year high school reunion just around the corner and her long-lost high school boyfriend back in town, it's Maggie's turn to start turning heads. In the face of small-minded gossips, a surly family, and a meddling grandmother, Maggie must reach deep inside her Southern-housewife soul to become the woman she's always wanted to be.
