Beth Hoffman is the author of this lighthearted coming-of-age novel, Saving CeeCee Honeycutt. After tragedy strikes her mentally ill mother, twelve-year-old CeeCee is whisked away from small-town Ohio to the home of her wealthy, larger-than-life Great Aunt Tootie in sunny Savannah, Georgia.
Between Aunt Tootie’s bold housekeeper Oletta, and their eccentric southern belle neighbors, CeeCee has enough to keep her entertained and bedazzled all summer long. This chick lit tale is a sweet mix of gentle and uplifting southern charm, at times reminiscent of Sue Monk Kidd’s The Secret Life of Bees. I truly admire Hoffman’s debut novel and look forward to reading her future work!
