This book had me laughing from the first page. Loved all of the characters. God takes a front seat in this one, yet not a preachy book.

What a hilarious yet heart-wrenching story! Charlotte Figg saw a real estate ad for a lovely double wide trailer situated in the Paradise Trailer Park, and she just had to have it! Her husband had just died, and she was eager to start a new and happier life, and Paradise sounded like just the place to start over. However, when she arrived in Paradise, she was devastated. She had been duped. The trailer that she now owned was a run-down piece of junk, with a couple of raccoons as it's current inhabitants. Turmoil about whether to run for the hills or try to make it livable was her first decision to make, and she chose to stick it out. Charlotte's new neighbors in Paradise are the most unlikely bunch of people you could ever imagine. There is Rose, the tattoo lady; Asa, the one-armed maintenance man; Ginger, the midget; Suzy, the victim of domestic violence; Hazel, the eccentric yet secretly wealthy owner of hundreds of hats and a few cats; and the list goes on and on. Even Charlotte has issues from her past that she needs to deal with in order to find her own healing. Each of the inhabitants in Paradise has their own story, some with a painful past and some with current secrets. Charlotte's influence (her scrumptious pies, her trailer renovations, her softball team, and her big heart) changes the neighborhood forever. I highly recommend this book ... it will make you laugh out loud many times, but it might also bring some tears as the lovable characters in this book share their hearts and their lives with each other.

Good writing,well developed characters,and great attention to detail. I can totally picture the trailer park, the field, the wacky inhabitants. This story delves deeper than I thought it would. I find myself on the edge of my seat as things happen to Charlotte hoping things turn out good for her. She definitely has some obstacles to overcome and seems to still be figuring that our for herself. Haven't quite finished it yet. But highly recommend if you enjoy getting involved.

After the death of her husband, Charlotte Figg sells her house, buys a trailer sight unseen, and begins a new chapter in her life. Just like "The Prayers of Agnes Sparrow," this second book in the Bright's Pond series, draws you in with another amazing collection of eccentric and sassy characters. The dialogue between the residents of the Paradise Trailer Park will have you literally laughing out loud! Their catchy phrases and sayings are worth remembering and repeating. This heartwarming tale may also bring a tear to your eye as Charlotte, who strives to help a neighbor who is a victim of spousal abuse, realizes she herself needs to deal with secrets from her own past. This book teaches us that those whom we are quick to dismiss, mock, and label as a motley crew of misfits, are sometimes just the right mix that God needs to perform miraculous wonders!

Enjoyable and funny! I really enjoyed this book. It’s fun, humorous and touching. The story had me thinking and relating to things in personal life as well. The characters were down to earth, common and very believable. A feel good story that reminds me that God is always in control.

This was such a cute story. The characters are all likeable and you laugh with some of the things that happen in the story. The best thing about this book is it is that it is based on normal people's every day lives and how a normal person would deal with things. When life gave her lemons she made lemonade.
