The Pajama Girls of Lambert Square
By Rosina Lippi
G.P. Putnam’s Sons, 2008. 351 pgs. Fiction
John Dodge buys a failing store in Lamb’s Corner, South Carolina with plans to turn it around and sell it in eighteen months, just like he does with all his business ventures. Lamb’s Corner is different than anywhere else Dodge has been, though, and he finds himself seduced by the affairs of the town’s quirky residents, particularly pajama-clad Julia, who owns a neighboring linen store.
Fans of Lorna Landvik and Joshilyn Jackson will likely enjoy this one.
