Pages: 368 pages
From the author of Sit! Stay! Speak! comes a tender, terrific novel complete with long-buried secrets, a three-legged pot belly pig, and an irresistible dog—an unforgettable story about love, friendship, and community. Perfect for fans of Mary Kay Andrews and Mary Alice Monroe.
Caroline O’Connor never dreamed she’d be back home in Cold River, Missouri, the Ozark Mountain town where everyone is ‘up your business.’…they mean well as they drive you crazy. She thought she’d left town for good, but now she’s back, helping to care for her New York born mother—struck with Alzheimer’s, and prone to saying and doing anything—and her father, the beloved local doctor frustrated he can’t cure his own wife.
As for Caroline, she’s doing ‘just fine’ coping with her parents, her brazen cousin Ava Dawn’s marital disasters, her mostly-deaf dog…and with Noah Cranwell, far-flung relative of a local family mostly infamous for running moonshine, an ex-veteran who’s come to Cold River with troubles of his own.
Caroline believes she knows everything about Cold River and the people who live in its hills and hollers … but sometimes life’s greatest surprises happen closest to home.
Caroline O’Connor is back in her hometown helping take care of her mother who’s suffering from Alzheimer’s. This town is full of interesting characters that are all dealing with something in their life.
Author Annie England Noblin is a great storyteller. Her characters are quirky, funny, believable and relatable. The outstanding dialogue made this book a very enjoyable to read. It also made me reflect on life. You never know what’s awaiting you on this journey we called life. Everything is not what it seems in this town especially when it comes to Love.
This was a very quick read for me. I look forward to reading more by this author. I recommend this book for your reading pleasure.
