    Spelling counts

    Don' t call yourself a writer if you can't tell the difference between "steal" and "steel".

    great book

    This novel was in San Diego. Their was a Witch Creek fire and the firemen had to cut down a person's favorite Red Plum Tree in order to save their house. She would glance through the French doors to watch the hummingbirds light on the branches as they rested between the feeders on her butterfly tree. She had brought a new Red Plum Tree. Her ex husband and dad and the neighbor across the street helped them take it out of her SUV. The landscapers came 6 days after and put it into t he ground where the old one once was in. I enjoyed this novel. ShelleyMA

    Cute story

    Short, sweet story about the lengths a woman went to to replace a tree she loved. Cover and title would be great for a longer book.

    Even Free this is overpriced!

    What a piece of crap! This was 17 pages about an idiot moving a tree. Even the writing was lousy. It was free but what a waste of time!

    Plum Loco is Plum Cute

    It may only be 17 pages, but it is a cute little read. Even my 10 year old enjoyed it.
