Renovating the Richardsons

Millie and Al have bought a large house on the outskirts of Goose Creek, Kentucky, with the intent of making it a Bed and Breakfast Inn.
Susan has bought the veterinary clinic.
Justin is working for Millie and Al in renovating the house.
Thomas is a helicopter father who wants to take care of Susan and watch over her finances since he helped her buy the clinic. He also has a serious dislike for Susan's boyfriend, Justin.
Violet is Millie's best friend, and is helping her with some of the work on the house.
Frieda and Betty feel they have to know EVERYTHING that is going on in town and they also feel that their advice is indespensible.
Tuesday wants to open a massage therapy salon in Goose Creek, but is having a hard time getting her shop ready to open.
Jerry is the mayor and badly wants to win the annual softball game against Morley Falls.
Franklin and Lulu Thacker are the most irritating and misfitting citizens of Goose Creek. They just can't seem to find a way to fit in.

Virginia Smith has taken the citizens of this town and paraded them through this book as if they were the emperor sporting his "new clothes." You see these characters, not in their altogether, but unmasked and soul-bared. It's an hilarious mix of personalities come to life on the pages of this book. It is part two of a series revolving around Goose Creek, Kentucky. This is a mish-mash of stories all worked together to make quite the cohesive novel. There are many little nuances in the book but they all coalesce to make a rollicking tale that is hard to put down.

Five Stars, Two Thumbs Up, and a home run on the softball field.

My thanks go to Harvest House Publishers for allowing me to read and review this book.
