    Book Reviewed by Thumper


    It's Christmas time for the McBroom sisters and all three got man trouble. Frankie, the oldest sister, can't seem to find Mr. Right in her everyday life and has placed her faith in the internet to find him for her. Livvy, the middle sister, is having major martial problems. During a dinner party, her surgeon husband Tony, is served with a paternity suit summons from his mistress (Ouch, I felt that one way over here).  In the throes of her emotional upheaval, Livvy surfs the internet and clicks on a pop up ad that asks, "Are you a woman betrayed?" That click will lead to Livvy's world turning upside down, three or four times. Tommie, the baby sister, would love to get close to her handsome, single dad, neighbor, but her past is a wall blocking her path to him.

    I had a ball with Naughty or Nice. I laughed, got teary eye in a couple of spots, and loudly exclaimed, "I don't believe this" or "I know he didn't" throughout the last half of the novel.  I thoroughly enjoyed myself.  The McBroom sisters were wonderful. Dickey did a fine job creating them. I do not believe there is a male author on this planet that can capture the female voice like Dickey. The novel is smart, funny, and touching. It does not get much better than this.
