Graciela "Ace" Jones is mad-mad at her best friend Lilly who cancels their annual trip to Panama City for mysterious reasons; at her boss Catherine for "riding her ass like a fat lady on a Rascal scooter;" at her friend Chloe's abusive husb∧ and especially at Mason McKenzie, the love of her life, who has shown up with a marriage proposal one year too late. Ace is never mad, though, at her near-constant companion, an adorable chiweenie dog named Buster Loo.

Ace's anger begins to dissipate as she takes matters into her own hands to take down Chloe's philandering husband-and to get to the bottom of a multitude of other scandals plaguing Bugtussle, Mississippi. Then, she starts to realize that maybe Mason deserves a second chance after all.

With a sharp and distinctive voice, Stephanie McAfee delivers a hilarious and fast-paced tale about Ace Jones and her two best friends-thick as thieves and tough as nails-navigating Southern small-town politics and prejudices, finding love, and standing up for each other all the way.

display_description "Gracelia "Ace" Jones is a sassy high school teacher, known in her small town of Bugtussle, Mississippi, for an outsize presence and a mouth to match. But this time that big mouth might get her into big trouble.... Ace knows that something bad is brewing when her best friend and coworker, Lilly, cancels their annual spring break trip to be with a man--a man she's kept a secret for months. But the real trouble comes when Lilly is fired by their horrible principal--under suspicion of sleeping with a student, of all things. Ace and their mutual friend Chloe know they have to prove Lilly's innocence, a prospect as appealing to Ace as a side salad. Then Chloe lands in a crisis of her own when her aristocratic--and emotionally abusive--husband drives her toward the breaking point. At her wit's end, Ace intends to ruin his reputation while saving Lilly's. Meanwhile, a boyfriend from her past reappears, which gets her wondering if she's prepared for affection from someone other than her dog, chiweenie Buster Loo. For these three women, matters are going south on a grand scale--and Ace doesn't do well with scales"-- Provided by publisher.
