“Whew, it’s a relief to be out of Mary Clay’s head so we can speak for ourselves. She’s working on a new book, but she doesn’t write fast enough to suit us.
“We’re the DAFFODILS which stands for Divorced And Finally Free Of Deceitful, Insensitive, Licentious Scum®. We’re middle-aged sorority sisters from the University of Georgia who renewed our friendship when we all divorced our various husbands. Penny Sue holds the record, she’s a DAFFODIL three times over. :-)
“Ouch!” Penny Sue just poked my arm and said I was catty. “It’s not catty if it’s the truth! Good Lord, now she’s stomped out on the deck, pouting. I reckon I’d better go see to her. That’s it for now, but stay tuned. A lot’s happened since Mary Clay’s last DAFFODILS mystery, Murder in the Stacks.
“We’ll talk soon. Oh, Ruthie says ‘Hi. Her new bookstore is coming along.’” —Leigh.
