No Lady and Her Tramp will have you rolling in the aisles as you follow the exploits of the residents of President Park, the trailer park to top all trailer parks. When Beth Ann Dixon buys herself a computer and decides to write a steamy erotic novel, her husband, Billy Ray, can't do much of anything right, not even shoot a gun. Janet Higgins is the resident Peeping Tom - and Troy Finkmyer is the guy we all love to hate. Everybody gets into the act and there are showdowns all over Grapevine - Grapevine, Kentucky that is. Shirley Snodgrass is the local gossip columnist for the Grapevine Gazette and records it all in her column, 'I Heard It Through the Grapevine'.

Beauty Salon owner Beth Ann Dixon, long term resident of Presidant Park trailer park and long suffering wife of Billy Ray wants more out of life that the existence she has experienced thus far.

Her dream starts when she wins at bingo and buys herself a computer. She decides that she will write an erotic novel and become rich and famous the world over. Her husband, and everyone else who discovers her plan, laugh at her, for how could someone who never even finished high school, become a famous writer?

But Beth Ann is determined to prove them all wrong, and then who'll be laughing?

I loved this book, populated by characters that you can just imagine living in this fictional trailer park, but they never become cariacatures, just very funny. My favourite character was Janet, the local busybody.

Most of the love secens take place within Beth Ann's novel, almost like a little book within a book, and are written very well. I couldn't really tell that the book was written by two different authors, their styles melded so well.

It is a very funny book, but there are some dramatic moments as well, just like life, although if I lived in President Park, I'm not sure I could take all that excitement!
