    A great story and a plan to stop the death of a community

    When the new highway bypass opened, the traffic through Green virtually stopped, and businesses started dying for lack of customers. What can be done, and can it be done in time? In this 5th Green story, Lois now has a baby as well as the paper to run, and another business owner suggests renovating and re-opening the old-time ice cream parlor and some other such stores to lure people into visiting downtown Green once again. If you've read the previous books in the series, you won't want to miss this one, and if you are starting with this one, you will want to go back and get caught up on the whole history of Lois and Green. Serious issues are covered with a light touch and great humor. The stories are so good, I got them for my Nook as well as in paperback!
