    6. I just devoured Amy Hill Hearth s first book set in Collier County, Floria Miss Dreamsville and the Collier County Women s Literary Society It was just delightful as is the second book, Miss Dreamsville and the Lost Heiress of Collier County.When I read the first book I had never been to Florida Now I ve been there twice Florida is a steamy, magical place and author Amy Hill Hearth captures it beautifully I discovered a new town in this book, Everglades City, that we will need to check out next [...]

    7. In some ways I liked this sequel better than the first book, Miss Dreamsville and the Collier County Literary Society I felt there was action in this book and the characterization seemed a bit deeper to me, though that may well have been due to the fact I already knew the characters from the first bookn t know I am going to recommend to my book club that we read this one since everyone so enjoyed the first book and it was GREAT for generating discussion Highly recommend reading both of these an [...]

    8. Pleasant enough, but not particularly engaging and easy to put down I picked it up because it was set in Collier County in SW Florida, which I visited for the first time this year It was set in Naples in 1964 before Naples was developed, so it promised to give me a glimpse into that bit of history It did, but it turns out her husband, not she, is the Florida native, so I don t trust the glimpse I got.

    9. This is the second story set in Collier County, Naples Florida Set in the mid 1960 s, Dora hurries home after a year in Mississippi when she gets word that her ex plans to destroy the peace and quiet with a fancy new housing development We get to catch up with all the bookclub members and learn some secrets about Robbie Lee and his mother The characters have all developed and the storyline is very believable I enjoyed this book and hope to return to Collier County for another visit.

    10. I read all of the rave reviews on this book, but I can t say I agree with them I found the characters to be cartoon ish and the plot was not that believable to me I thought the book was somewhat boring and read through it rather quickly.

    11. In the first Miss Dreamsville, we learned about Jackie Hart, a transplant from Boston, and her struggle to fit in with the people of the Florida Everglades In her attempt to find a place to be, she started the Collier County Literary Society, and became Miss Dreamsville for the residents.In this book, which takes place the following year of 1964, we learn about another of the members of that book club Eudora Welty Witherspoon, known to all as Dora The story begins where the last ended, when Jack [...]

    12. I received Miss Dreamsville and the Lost Heiress of Collier County from the publisher via NetGalley in exchange for my honest review This does not influence my opinions or the content of my review I read Miss Dreamsville and the Collier County Women s Literary Society about a year ago, and will confess now that I found it just OK I requested this second novel from NetGalley because I am always willing to give a second chance, and I m very glad I did After reading this second installment, which h [...]

    13. I was amused to see Naples Florida described in Miss Dreamsville and the Lost Heiress of Collier County as the end of the earth, for a real estate broker in Tampa used exactly those words to describe it to my parents a dozen years earlier than the time in which this book is set Fortunately, they did not listen to him and I grew up there and remember it as being somewhat sophisticated than the sleepy little Southern town Ms Hearth describes That doesn t matter I am sure her literary license is u [...]

    14. Miss Dreamsville and the Lost Heiress of Collier County is Southern fiction at its best Set in 1964 in Collier County, Florida, we meet a most entertaining and diverse group of characters Dora Witherspoon was summoned by ex stripper alligator hunter Dolores Simpson to return immediately to Collier County to deal with Dora s ex husband Darryl and his proposed development in the Collier County everglades Dora teams up with her other book club members to come up with the best way to stop Darryl in [...]

I was given an advanced copy of Miss Dreamsville and the Lost Heiress of Collier County by NetGalley in exchange for my honest review.When I saw that this book was a sequel, I decided to purchase the first book Miss Dreamsville and the Collier County Women s Literary Society to read first I live in Charlotte County Florida, which is just a hair North of Collier County, so the local aspect of these books was a big draw I enjoy reading books that are set in places I have visited or lived I thoroug [...]

    16. Sissy When I realized that one of the main characters was a stripper turned alligator hunter, I was hooked I just had to know about Dolores Simpson Miss Dreamsville and the Lost Heiress of Collier County there I wrote out the whole long thing is chock full of similar fascinating personalities, like a good Southern seafood gumbo is chock full of shrimp Bubby I ve never eaten gumbo, seafood or otherwise, but I ll agree with Sissy s analogy There s just so much good stuff packed into this novel Re [...]

    17. This is a sequel to Miss Dreamsville and the Collier County Women s Literary Society I enjoyed the first book much better In her new book, the members of the literary society are reunited to fight against a huge residential development in Naples, Florida, being built by Dora s ex husband, Darryl The original Miss Dreamsville, Jackie Hart, fights the fight because the development is called DREAMSVILLE, and others from the group join in to preserve the waterways and nature in the nearby Everglades [...]

    18. While this is a follow up to a previous novel, Miss Dreamsville and the Collier County Literary Society with the same characters, the author provides a summary of each one s activities early in this book I found this very helpful because it has been awhile since I read the first book and I didn t remember the details well This book picks up smoothly where the first ended and follows a few storylines closely This is an easy, comfortable, relaxing book It creates the sense of visiting with old fri [...]

    19. I really enjoyed this fast, fun sequel to Miss Dreamsville and the Collier County Women s Literary Society Southern fiction is already my wheelhouse, and this one is a sweet, sassy, sharp witted tale of friendship, family, and forgiveness Reminiscent of Fannie Flagg which from me is high praise , Amy Hill Hearth makes a reader laugh, and smile, and want to visit Collier County.

    20. I won an ARC of this book in a First Reads giveaway in exchange for a honest review.When I found out there was a book before this one, I decided to read it before I read this one I m glad I did so because I felt as if I had gotten the best reading experience that way The book was a nice read, but I don t think I would read it again since it s not the genre I can get into easily I loved the writing style because I felt it was very accurate.Overall, I enjoyed the book and believe others will too.

    21. My bookclub read Miss Dreamsville and the Collier County Women s Literary Society in 2013 as part of our theme, Books About Florida The author was gracious enough to join the group via Skype We loved the book and Amy Hill Hearth s description of Florida during that time mid 60 s are so real Her latest book is the sequel taking place a year later It was a joy to revisit the characters and find out what they had been doing The characters and content are diverse reflecting beliefs and attitudes of [...]

    22. Our bookclub here in Collier County HAD to read this wonderful book Miss Dreamsville chronicles the history of early Naples, Florida and the quirky characters make you laugh and appreciate how Naples was in the 60 s not too long ago We met Amy Hill Hearth at a Breakfast discussion she is very funny, very witty and a wonderful story teller She advised us that a sequel to Miss Dreamsville is coming soon Nice Bookclub discussion material.

    23. I received a copy of Miss Dreamsville and the Lost Heiress of Collier County as a preread from NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.Having now finished this book, I wish I had read the first one I m putting it on my list from our local library.I enjoyed being taken back in time 1964 to Florida, realizing just how different life in the south was, compared to life here in New England I look forward to learning about Dora her friends

    24. I vacation in Collier County and was interested in Hearth s take on it The book is a little like The Help in that it is southern and in the 60 s It provides a southern attitude toward the lower class, Yankees and the race problem without including any of the violence To this day I am startled when I am referred to as a Yankee Southerners have a very different outlook about so many things and cannot see why we Yankees are so upset about them.

    25. Great sequel In the late summer of 1964, the members of the Collier County Women s Literary Society gather together after being apart for some time Their mission is to stop the development of houses along the river where Robbie Lee s the lone male in the book group mother lives in a shack Filled with the joy and hard aches of living in a small town, this historical novel brings humor with the delight of friendship built on very different personalities Can be read as a stand alone too

    26. Thanks to and Atria who sent this in exchange for a review DNFI got this book and did not read the synapses about it when it got here I tried real hard to read it but it just did not catch my interest at all I will try books by this author in future and I will probably like them i will not be discouraged at all.

    27. This was cute, but not as good as the first book, which I loved It didn t help that I had to re read the first book to figure out what was going on in this one This was sweet, and it answered some questions that were left over from the last book I had been hoping for a sequel, so i guess this one did the trick.
