I read this on my new NOOK. It was very difficult to put down. The characters have a wonderful sense of humor and the story is very good. Fern Michaels has again come up with another great story.

I loved this book and was very disappointed it was so short. Usually for %5.99 you get more than 100 pages to read. Felt a little cheated with this one. It was a very warm Christmas story and was sorry it ended so fast.

THIS WAS MY FIRST FERN MICHAELS BOOK. A GOOD CHRISTMAS STORY BUT IT FELT LIKE I HAD SKIPPED THE FIRST CHAPTERS OR SOMETHING. NOT ENOUGH CHARACTER DEVELOPMENT. SORT OF THROWS THINGS AT YOU WITHOUT ANY SET-UP. THE AUTHOR SEEMED TO BE RACING THROUGH THE STORY.

Widower Jonathan Cisco becomes upset when his mother Loretta breaks her arm. With his mother suffering from a bad case of cataracts and some hearing problems, Jonathan moves the objecting Loretta into an assisted living facility in nearby Laurel Hills, Pennsylvania.

However, his three children (Sam, Hannah, and Sara), better known as the Trips as they are triplets, object. They feel their beloved granny needs her own place and take charge of seeing to her health needs. The Trips also pray that their daddy will have a catharsis so he sees what he is doing to his family and what a loser his fiancée Alexandra ¿never sweating¿ Prentice really is.

NO PLACE LIKE HOME is a toasty holiday tale (even in wintry Pennsylvania) that lifts the spirit of the audience though there are some flaws that most readers will opt to ignore. The assisted living facility is treated as a dump making the removal of granny quite easy to understand; Alexandra is an obvious loser so wanting her dropped is easy to accept; and everything ends in a neat ribbon wrapped coupling of everyone. Still, the story line makes one feel good so that readers will believe they received a gift from the magi as Fern Michaels provides good cheer to one and all in this warm family drama.

Fern Michaels never disappoints. This was a delightful read and I can't wait to see what happens next to these characters...for they truly are that in every sense of the word.

A great rainy day book! I read it in 4 hours and loved every minute. It is sad and funny. You are given enough information about the characters to fall in love with the family and in the end you are not left hanging and feel satisfied that the story was told.Fern Michaels makes the characters real enough that you could see them being a part of your own family.Loretta Cisco owns a candy company, that she began out of her kitchen, after losing her husband. Her son, Jonathan, helped her and has worked with his mother his whole life. Jonathan married Margie and they were blessed with triplets (or "The Trips" as they are better known) Sara, Hannah & Sam. After losing their mother at an early age they are raised by their Father and Grandmother. "The Trips", now in college, are very family oriented and when their Father starts making decisions that they feel are wrong, they jump into action to save their Grandmother, the company and the life and values they hold most dear.

The writing seemed rushed, and the characters weren't developed enough for me to buy into the story.

While I have been extremely please with all of my "book" purchases for my Nook Color, I am very disappointed to hear that it "no longer exists and B&N is pretty much dropping it!!! Can no longer puchase a cover for it (sure hope mine and other owners don't need to replace anything). Also very disappointed to try to load games, ex. Candy Crush only to find out that it cannot be purchased for my "color". Have to "upgrade" to the HD. Since I have only had mine for approx. 1 year, I am not truly interested in upgrading at the current time. Guess the next thing is I will not be able to purchase any books (unless I am willing to "upgrade". Very disappointed in this.
