    Hmmmmm

    This book didn't leave much of an impression on me. Not enough time for characters to develop and not enough 'umph' to make the characters and storyline stand out.

    Cute.

    I liked the story a lot, I just wish it was a bit longer. In the middle it felt a little rushed. You don't really get to read about the relationship evolving, it just kind of skims over that part.

    Another beautiful story by Sheila Roberts.

    Poor Meredith is left to pick up the pieces of her broken life after the death of her husband. His death leaves her a single parent to her young son and his enormous gambling debts leave her without a penny to her name and no choice but to move into their vacation cabin, the only property she has left to call home. Or so she thought. When Jed Banks shows up at her front door one night to find out what she's doing in HIS cabin her life takes another nosedive.

    Good Neighbors has a wonderful storyline and great characters. It was heartwarming to read along as Meredith put the pieces of her life back together and learned how to trust again. There isn't a villain to be found anywhere in this story and sometimes that's exactly what you need in a book! Icicle Falls strikes again. How could things ever go badly there?

    If you've never read a Sheila Roberts book, Good Neighbors is a great place to get acquainted. It's short and sweet. I read it in one sitting and enjoyed every page.

    Sometimes a girl's gotta do what a girl's gotta do.  Meredith moved her and her teenage son from her city home to her family's cabin in a small town after the death of her husband and losing everything because of his gambling debts. Shortly after getting there, she meets her neighbor, Jed, who 'bought' her cabin and land. So he takes legal steps to evict her then finds out that he was swindled by Meredith's husband and doesn't really own the land.  Jed and Meredith are attracted to each other and try to get past the conflicts they have had.




    I really liked the story line and the part about Jed's Youth Assisting Youth program.  The writing flowed perfectly and I just kept reading without putting it down.  The characters were very well developed.  I really felt a connection with Meredith and her problems.  I admired her determination to get past the mess her life turned into and try to provide a home for her son. Her son hated her, well all adults, but that's what teenagers do - hate their parents.  Jed was a nice man with his involvement with kids but I didn't feel like I knew him very well.

    Story about life

    Life is not perfect and you don't always find true happiness but it is possible. This book had meaning to it even though it was a short romance story.
