BINGO

(New York: Bantam Books, 1988).

The third book in Rita Mae Brown’s beloved Hunsenmeir trilogy, Bingo takes readers back to Runnymede, Maryland, a small town with the unique designation of being located on both sides of the Mason-Dixon line. It’s 1987, but in the absence of the War Between the States, Runnymede’s residents (sisters Louise and Julia Hunsenmeir in particular) still find plenty to squabble about–including the arrival of dashing, well-heeled newcomer Ed Tutweiler Walters who has the ladies fighting like schoolgirls. While trying to keep the peace and restore order in her family, Nickel Smith also has her hands full with a herculean effort to save the local newspaper from a corporate takeover. Editing the paper has been the most fulfilling work she has ever known, but she may not be able to raise the cash required to save it. The one person with enough business know-how to help her through it is also someone with whom she shares a sizzling secret. With a rollicking twist at the end that will have your reading group cheering, Bingo hits the jackpot. - Random House Readers Guide. Item #24055
