The Dearest Dorothy Series by Charlene Ann Baumbich is based in a small town nicknamed Pardon-me-ville, and features an elderly lady named Dorothy who cruises around town in her 76 Lincoln Continental.
Dorothy is loved by everyone in town, and stays on top of all the local gossip, which she is often the center of. In the series debut she must make a decision that could affect the entire town, and anything that concerns the entire town becomes everyone else’s business.
For anyone that has ever lived in a small town, these books bring back memories of a time when life was somewhat slower. It’s well worth the read!
