Patrice from Patrice’s Reading Corner said:

This story of community, family, love, faith, hope, and fate will stay with me a long time. I’m so grateful for having been given the oppurtunity to read this book. I will always remember that the Good Lord slips spare change into my pocket to help me get by when time’s aren’t so good

Book Musings from Down Under said:

SPARE CHANGE is an ingenious, edge of the seat and humorous story. I was hooked from page one and not let go until almost the very last page.

Laura from FUOnly Knew had the following to say:

I was swept away by Bette’s writing. The South oozes from the pages. I swear she writes with a southern drawl.

Bette’s characters are so real, so genuine. They have the same fears and insecurities as you or I. They all have their flaws. They are so real you might think you recognize one as someone you know.

Julie at In Julie’s Opinion said:

This is an extremely well written and edited book with very likable characters who you grow to care about and root for.  Throw in a murder and the search for the killer – before he can find and silence Ethan Allen, the only witness – and you have one hell of a book! I highly recommend this for all lovers of great Southern fiction 🙂

Lori Caswell from Goodreads says:

With a definite Southern voice – dark at times, a bit of humor, a touch of religion, fantastic characters for the reader to love and hate, and an unexpected twist, this book gets my highest recommendation. The book has won several awards and readers will know why. This one is a keeper, a story you will want to read again and share with your friends

Wow. I just finished this book last night and immediately called my mom and said, “You have to read this.” You know some of the stupid books they forced you to read in school? To me, this is the kind of book that they should have let us read. It’s a complete classic, but is interesting, heart warming, and amazing. It’s the kind of book that reminds you why you read. Because you want to fall in love with characters. Characters who think they are one way, but through a series of events learn that they can be so much more than they ever thought.
