    Heartwarming and Nostalgic

    Prolific author Melody Carlson proves that authors can keep delivering captivating stories, even as they near their 100th book. In Ready to Wed, she has created a town that is a character in itself. It seems to come alive and welcome you in. All the characters are memorable, from the Howard sisters to their strong-willed Auntie to their pastor, Kenneth, who has perfected Popping In 101¿a prerequisite class in Seminary. Belle Bannister drives in town in a pink convertible to find the husband God showed her in a dream. Her stay at the Inn gets the sisters reluctantly involved in Belle's quest when their Auntie Ethel becomes infatuated with the idea of a wedding. The manhunt is on and while the sisters like sweet Belle, they pity the town's bachelors. From the moment Auntie berates Jane on page one for wearing old gardening clothes and Crocs in public¿even if that public is her own garden¿you'll be enchanted by Acorn Hill and its inhabitants. Caring, warm and a bit whacky all define the characters that flow from Carlson's pen. If you were raised in a small town, you'll be nostalgic recognizing old neighbors. If you're a city dweller, you may find yourself longing for life in Acorn Hill. Whichever you are, you'll not come away untouched by this warm story of friendship and faith. I'm looking forward to the next books in this series. Ready to Wed receives a high recommendation.
