Mandy's Review:

Okay ... if y'all follow my reviews very often you already know that I adore this series. I love the town of liberty and how close the residents are to each other. The small-town feel is something I long for, especially after finishing one of these novels. I think one of the main things I enjoy about this series is that everything usually turns out okay and people find a way to move on.

Mary has her hands full with teenage Blossom, her step-daughter. Recently, Blossom has gotten miffed about the fact that Mary hasn't given Blossom a younger sibling. With Mary being the only doctor in Liberty, her schedule has gotten pretty full and hectic. It doesn't help that Anthony, Blossom's dad and Mary's husband, is also ready to have another child. Can she find a middle ground that will satisfy both her workload as well as her husband's and step-daughter's desires?

Birdie was recently engaged to Hugh. With the drama over her mother vandalizing the town (see The Impossible Wish), Birdie hasn't even thought about wedding arrangements. Thankfully her older half-sister Meade is organized and domineering enough to handle getting everything taken care of in three weeks. What most people don't know is that there will be an extra unplanned, but happily anticipated, guest at the wedding.

Meade is a successful business owner who has dreams of expanding across the country. She has it all mapped out in her 10-year plan. What she didn't have included in her plan was a romance that would tear her schedule all to pieces. Add into the mix taking care of her aging, Alzheimer-acting father and Meade's stress level is through the roof. Can she get everyone and everything back under control? Will she allow the romance to stunt her business expansion?

And then we have Glade. Glade is the great-niece of Reenie, Meade's father's housekeeper. Glade just popped in out-of-the-blue after running from home. When she shows up, she is VERY pregnant. Meade takes Glade on and gives her a helping hand by getting her obstetrician, optometrist, and dental appointments. She also finds out Glade dropped out of high school and gets her info, books, and a tutor to help her pass her GED. Will Glade stick around Liberty after the baby's born? Will Glade keep the baby or give it away?

Once again, Christine Nolfi has written a novel that will make you want to keep turning the pages. There was some unexpected sadness in this novel, which I understood and appreciated. In the midst of all the good things, sometimes bad things happen. You have to choose whether or not you're going to let it keep you down or if you're going to take your time to grieve and then move on. Yes, it's hard, but life is so much more than the bad things that happen to you.

I highly recommend this series to those who enjoy reading novels that make you smile and wish you were there.
