    I SUGGEST YOU START WITH BOOK NO. 1 OF THE SERIES..."THE LADIES OF COVINGTON SEND THEIR LOVE." This is a lovely series...well written...touching and entertaining. I believe women over 50 will enjoy this series the most, they can relate to the "ladies" experiences!

    Please, please let there be a sequel to this book!

    This newest book picks up the lives of our 'Ladies' without missing a beat. It not only entertains us with their day to day activities and interests, but also adds some colorful new characters as well. There is eccentric, eighty-one-year-old Lurina Masterson who brings a grin to everyone's face when she dons a white satin wedding gown and marries 'Old Man', her ninety-one-year-old boy friend. Then there is the frail yet unforgettable lady whom Hannah met and befriended who was to play a most important part in their lives and the lives of everyone in the Covington area. These new friends and neighbors are woven into the lives of our ladies in a masterful and entertaining way. <BR><BR> Precious, gentle Amelia, who carries burn scars on her neck from an automobile accident that claimed the life of her husband, finds herself swept up in an unexpected romance. My heart ached for her while she was under the spell of this charming yet demanding man, and at the same time I wanted to scream at her to <I>WAKE UP!</I> I found myself hoping that she would keep a firm hold on the independence that she had so recently found. <BR><BR> Grace, who makes cookies and mothers everyone, continues her loving relationship with her friend Bob and together they open the Cottage Tearoom on Elk Road. I was enchanted with the idea of their Cottage Tearoom, but it would prove to be quite an undertaking and too much hard work for the two of them. The awesome wedding reception for Bob's son and his new bride, planned and presented by Grace's son and his partner, was an event that kept Covington talking for months. <I>WAY TO GO, GUYS! </I> <BR><BR> Then there is our strong and steady Hannah, the boldest of the ladies. It was Hannah who became embroiled in attempting to save their valley from developers who would strip the land without regard for anything except profit. I cheered for her indomitable spirit as she persisted with her plans for stopping them before they wrecked her beautiful valley. Help for Hannah's cause finally came from an unexpected source. <BR><BR> ***** Wow! I loved this book, and so will everyone else who got to know Amelia, Hannah and Grace in 'The Ladies of Covington Send Their Love.' <I>Please, please let there be a sequel to this book!</I> *****
