9781572703803: Charming Grace (Audio Editions)

A slumbering Georgia community almost chokes on its mint juleps when Hollywood calls to film the true-life (and death) story of a heroic local lawman. Aside from the chaos that trails in the moviemakers' wakes, one person has a very private reason for not wanting the intimate details of the gentleman's life story revealed--his widow, Grace. So begins her inventive, comic crusade to obstruct proceedings, aided and abetted by a cast of quirky eccentrics, including the movie star's personal bodyguard, and a good-hearted ex-con with a private tragedy of his own. But, amidst the high jinks, nobody is prepared for the heartbreaking secrets that are finally revealed; secrets that will change all of them--hero, heroine, and movie star--forever.

From AudioFile:

Readers William Dufris and Moira Driscoll share performing duties in this story of a widow's attempt to halt the production of a movie about her hero husband. Dufris and Driscoll alternate narrative passages. Driscoll offers convincing portrayals of the 35-year-old widow and her grandmother, both Georgia belles; a 20-something niece from Detroit; and a silicone-enriched, abrasive stunt-woman from New Jersey. Dufris's cast includes the Louisiana protagonist, his convict brother, a New Jersey film hunk, and the hunk's son. All of them sound real enough to convince the listener that the narrating cast contains many actors. This audio production raises an average story to a level far higher than that of the printed book.
