I am usually wary of self published books.

As a book-blogger I usually write reviews for traditionally published books. This week I had a little extra time and this book, which was being offered for free at the time, looked like just the kind of book I was in the mood for. That being said, I wasn't expecting such a delightful read.

There is a great plot & structure, a bunch of quirky characters and has been edited quite well for a self-pub. With a little polishing and some smoothing out of the initial encounter between the protagonists this book could have jumped to a 5 star.

I believe the author has the potential develop into an excellent author. I would love to see what she could do with a publishing house behind her.

To my knowledge I have no connection to this author. I have not been asked to review this book.

It was a fun, enjoyable read and I recommend that you give it a chance.

Living in Atlanta, I enjoyed the setting of the story which was the North Georgia mountains. The story was sweet and romantic with a nice dose of humor brought on by the residents of the retirement community. I would recommend this book for a fun afternoon with a book.

I picked this book up as a free download, not realizing that it was self-published. It's okay, but it could have done with some more editing.

The concept has potential--up and coming career girl takes on rehabbing a small-town nursing home. You could do a lot with that in the inspirational chick-lit genre. The book has some good moments, but not enough that I would recommend it. Here are a few of the problems I noted:

1) Too much telling, not enough showing. We're told that the mean nurse character is mean and that the nursing home manager is incompetent, but we never really get to see that in action. Gracie's first interaction with the nurse shows that they started off on the wrong foot, but other than that we never really see her in action mistreating patients, etc. Same thing with the nursing home manager. Obviously the guy needs some help decorating his office, but we never get to see exactly what the issues with his job performance are. A scene where Gracie uncovers embezzelement or missing medications or something would have set up the conflict better--and made the climax of the novel more believable. As it is, the book doesn't lay the foundation to support the climactic scene. It comes out of left field.

2) Inconsistency in characters and setting. We're told that Gracie is nerdy, but that doesn't come across to the reader. She comes off more cute and perky than nerdy and geeky. Her internal dialogue is more about waxing and pedicures than bookish and intellectual. Also, the nursing home setting doesn't seem to have been well-researched. Is it a nursing home or an assisted living center? Seniors who can outdo twenty-something-year old women on treadmills don't move into nursing homes, even if their husbands need care.

Such fun! I could identify with Gracie! This book takes several surprising turns and I like that. It is a sweet story with romance, first career job in a new location, learning to deal with job expectations, being the owner's daughter, etc. and all in all, Gracie exhibits grace.

I have read 3 Heather Hunt books and enjoyed each one. The faith of the characters is an integral part of their lives but they are believable and likeable folk.

I was pleasantly surprised and enjoyed the humor in the book, Aging with Gracie. The author did well in making the characters come alive so you felt you were right there with them. It was an interesting plot and really kept your interest until the end. I truly enjoyed this book and had some laughs as I was reading.

I loved this book and I loved the characters within it! A perfect blend of sweet and sassy in a clean romantic comedy that read like a friday night movie with your girl friends. Well thought out, well edited, and a perfect blend of fun and serious as Gracie grows into herself and God's calling on her life. I will defintely be looking for more from this author!
