Item description for Barking Goats and the Redneck Mafia (Sweet Meadow Series #2) by Dolores J. Wilson...
Bertie Byrd Fortney never thought she'd be spending her wedding night in a maternity ward. But her best friend went into labor right in the middle of the conga line at Bertie and Arch's wedding reception, and it wasn't until her friend's son made his entrance into the world that Bertie, her husband, and her stepdaughter could leave on their motor home honeymoon. The trip's trials, however, leave Bertie wondering if a honeymoon is some kind of test a woman must pass before becoming a wife. To add to her tribulations, Bertie returns to Bertie's Garage and Towing to find Linc, her tow truck driver, is being threatened by the Redneck Mafia. The mob boss has told Linc to return to Atlanta to marry his daughter, or he will move him there himself, one body part at a time. And then Bertie is taken hostage by a man who has taught his goats to bark and his twins to talk. A mistake on both counts, in Bertie's not-so-humble opinion. Finally, a bizarre accident involving an elderly drunken citizen Linc mistakes as a hit man, a golf cart, a trip to the hospital, and a positive pregnancy test has tongues wagging in Sweet Meadow, Georgia. Did Bertie really get knocked up on a golf cart by her tow truck driver? Will Bertie be able to douse the rumors? Will she be able to save her faithful employee from the mob? More importantly, will she pass the wife test?

Reviews - What do customers think about Barking Goats and the Redneck Mafia (Sweet Meadow Series #2)?
Roll on the floor, hystericaly funny...... Apr 1, 2007
I started laughing on the first page of this zany sequel to Big Hair and Flying Cows and didn't stop until I got the the end. Bertie Byrd is a hapless heroine who tries, but is often foiled by well-meaning friends. The secondary characters are colorful and quite unique and add immeasurably to this completly riotous tale of their not-so-ordinary life in Sweet Water, Gerogia. Dolores Wilson has a real knack for humor and it shines through in this book like the bright star that she is.
Birdie Rides Again Jan 20, 2007
Ride through the zaney town of Sweetwater, GA with Birdie and a host of adorbale characters. With Birdie, anything that can happen and usually does. This is a fun read that will tickle your funny bone.
amusing slice of southern living Dec 16, 2006
In Sweet Meadow, Georgia, Bertie Byrd and Arch Fortney celebrate their marriage with friends and family. However, before they can sneak away on their honeymoon (accompanied by his preadolescent daughter Petey), her best friend matron of honor Mary Lou Jarvis goes into labor. Bertie and Mary Lou's husband Rex take her to Shafer County Hospital where the alien comes out of nine months of hiding.
Since Mary Lou and the kid are okay, Bertie, Arch and Petey begin the honeymoon in an RV starting with a nearby amusement park. As Bertie struggles with the dual tests of wife and mother, she comes home to her business, Bertie's Garage and Towing, to find the Redneck Mafia harassing Linc, her tow truck driver, which leads to rumors that Linc made a hole in one with her on the local golf course.
This is an amusing slice of southern living starring a confused heroine trying to do what is right for her and for others though her efforts often lead to conflict between the general good and her personal good. Fans will root for Bertie who at times wants to say bye-bye to the pressure of her business, marriage, and parenting. The sequel to the humorous BIG HAIR AND FLYING COWS is a jocular look at small town Georgia.
