Book Jacket:

Charlene Ann Baumbichís two heartwarming Dearest Dorothy novels have transported thousands to a little Midwestern town where the ups and downs of everyday life have charmed readers and left them clamoring for more.

Of course, the character everyone has come to love is the feisty former bandleader, 87-year-old Dorothy Jean Wetstra. Now in Dearest Dorothy, Help! Iíve Lost Myself! Partonville marks its centennial plus thirtyóby arguing over the best way to celebrate it. Meanwhile, the acting mayor is trying to change a vital part of the town square (but itís always been that way!) and a newcomer named Katie canít avoid the suspicion that sheís grown far closer to this quirky little place than she had ever intended. Delightful and touching, this tale is every bit as addictive as its predecessors.
