Love the Grandberry Falls books
Love this author, her books are heartwarming and funny. A wonderful break from real life and the main characters are certainly characters.
I have read all the books by this wonderful lady that I could get for my nook. I adored them all except this set. Its mainly because of the bad editing and plot jumping. I am on the 2 nd book now and its bad. She is opening the door for the dog to go out to the back yard, next sentence she is ripping tje bag her dress came in.....weird. Her kid is 12 yrs old in chapter1, but in chapter 6 he is 9. Then you have weirdo dog trainer who comes to her house at night. And after the first meeting with her kid she says he cant leave because her son is now involved. OMG! IT WAS A DOG TRAINING CLASS HE CAN LEAVE. In both books no one acts like adults. They hem and haw around things instead of speaking.
The book was a
