John F. Blair, Publisher has graciously provided me with a copy of one of their new books, I Love You – Now Hush for review. On top of that, they also gave me another copy to giveaway right here to one of my lovely readers!

From the Publisher:
Written by best-selling humorist Melinda Rainey Thompson (SWAG: Southern Women Aging Gracefully and The SWAG Life) and award-winning magazine editor Morgan Murphy (Southern Living, Forbes, and Vanity Fair), I Love You—Now Hush is a pithy, gleeful read that encourages couples to laugh at their differences.

My Review: Honestly, I don’t usually read anything but pure fiction. Mystery, suspense, thriller, cutsie love stories, vampire novels….you know the type. But, through the help of Business2Blogger, I was given the opportunity to review a new book that is actually a collection of essays written by two authors….One a southern gentleman….The other a Southern lady.

I Love You – Now Hush can be explained in one word fairly easily. Hilarious. I have never actually cried tears of laughter while reading a book…until this one. Some of these stories ring so true when I think of the people around me in Georgia that I could simply relate on a rather amusing level.

Let me be clear, I am not originally from the South. Some of the subjects in this book (saving aluminum foil?) really seemed foreign to me. Apparently, some things only happen in the South. Whether you are from the South, have ever been to the South or have only heard of the South in passing, this book is just plain funny.

All women will love it because Melinda Rainey Thompson is a self-professed mess. She is a SAHM and total soccer mom. She wrote an entire chapter about how date night is just not quite what it used to be, for goodness sake. That was one of those chapters that I simply nodded my head at when she described how you can just look at her and know she’s a mama.

Even men can enjoy I Love You – Now Hush since Morgan Murphy is the quintessential Man’s Man. He is a cigar-smoking, kudzu killing, only-when-appropriate cursing Southern Gentleman. I swear I work with five guys just like him.
