Meet Maggie Fortenberry. To others, her life seems pretty much perfect - she's beautiful, charming and successful, just as you'd expect of a former Miss Alabama. But, in fact, Maggie is perfectly miserable. By now she should have been living in one of the elegant houses on Red Mountain with the adoring husband and 2.5 children. Instead, she makes a living selling that dream to others - through her estate agency Red Mountain Realty, where lately business has been going from bad to worse. But just as Maggie is about to give up hope, she comes up with the perfect plan. And that's when strange things start happening. As Maggie finds herself catapulted into one surprising discovery after another, she learns valuable lessons about the nature of friendship, the challenges of modern life and the dangers of impossible dreams. She also learns that everybody, dead or alive, has at least one little secret ..."I Still Dream About You" is a delectable romp of a novel. Part murder mystery, part feel-good comedy, it bursts with the Southern charm and good, old-fashioned wisdom that have become Fannie Flagg's hallmark worldwide.

I loved this book! I love the literature of southern writers, and Fannie Flagg is no exception! The book presents a former Miss Alabama who thinks her life should have gone a lot better than it has. She is now selling real estate and has been for years, but she knows nothing about computers, smartphones, or anything electronic! She doesn't even know how to do the paper work for real estate. So one day she just ups and decides it's time to kill herself! She plans it down to the minutest detail, but just as she is ready to carry out her plan, something always happens to put it off.

This book is filled with wonderful characters who are funny and caring. It also tells the history of one estate in Birmingham (where the story takes place) and about the man who built it and about his heir. A person who enjoys this book will feel hopeful and happy at the end.

Great book, keeps you reading and smiling all the way through the book. If you have ever been depressed and felt like ending it all, this story shows that life is certainly worth living although you may not feel like it at the time. You change as life happens and what may feel like a miserable life one day can be seen as a miracle the next day. You just need to hang on.
This book was also full of Birmingham Alabama history and places, and the people who live there. I enjoyed reading what the town had been like in the fifties and the more current picture as well. I greatly enjoyed this book.

I loved this book...every woman in her sixties no matter their feelings about their age should read this book! WOW! There were places I wondered how Fanny Flagg got into my mind...you will not want to stop reading! I could write so many great things about this book....but don't want to spoil or give any secret away!

I love Fannie Flagg's books, but I struggled to get into this story for about the first half. Maggie, a 60ish former Miss Alabama, doesn't have much going for her and decides to end her life. Even with careful planning, obstacles crop up to prevent her plan from happening. My interest was really piqued when Maggie and Brenda find the skeleton presumed to be the 1800's Edward Crocker, original owner of prime property Crestview. Solving the mystery surrounding Edward Crocker kept me turning pages. I did love the quirky characters Brenda and Hazel, Maggie's friends and co - workers.

Not my kind of book but I read it anyway. Good hearted older woman, has been beauty queen, not very successful real-estate lady decides that her life is no longer worth living. The story than goes on and on about her current not very interesting life and her past and all her mistakes. The secondary characters are more interesting than the protagonist. The book has a happy ending. I don't like these kind of female characters who are fragile and weak and need a man in their lives to save them and make them whole and such...enough said.

I enjoyed this book. Maybe not quite as much as some other's of Fannie's, but I still liked it. I think one reason was that it dealt with someone contemplating suicide, which is just something I can't really relate to. I guess it's timely, since it appears we are seeing a rise in suicides. Also, the back story of Edward and Edwina is somewhat distracting and disjointed, and at the end, it appears it was put in only to highlight women's rights. But, all that being said, it still was a fun and enjoyable book.

Birmingham Alabama, beauty queens, respect,civil rights, a yankee bad gal, all looked at with humor and affection. I moved from Birmingham when I was 5, but this accurately brought back the feel of the place. Great character studies as well and a little mystery thrown in, and all sprinkled with a a generous helping of humor
I can say: I have read ALL of Fannie Flagg's books (well, reading the last one now, that I have not read). One will NOT go wrong, she is a great author (she used to be on Match Game with Gene Rayburn years ago! -- for us 50+ years olds and we were teenagers and watched her, AND she is NOT much older than us!!). BUT: her best book, in my opinion is COMING ATTRACTIONS, renamed (why I do not know) "Daisy Fae and the Miracle Man" -- this is the best, funniest book I ever read. Please trust me. Fannie Flagg is GREAT. GET THAT BOOK, if none other... --gv
