4.0 out of 5 stars Fit the bill of what I was wanting to read, June 13, 2012
This review is from: Spring Fever (Hardcover)
I am not a die-hard Mary Kay Andrews fan, but after reading three novels by her, I am becoming one. After seeing Ms. Andrews' name for years in bookstores everywhere, I finally picked up "The Fixer-Upper" in the fall of 2009 and gave it 4-stars. In June of 2011, I read "Summer Rental" and gave that book 4-stars as well. Neither book was absolutely the best book I have ever read in the genre, but I enjoyed them both and thought the books were good enough for me to seek out "Spring Fever" when it was just recently published.

I finished it this afternoon and have to say I enjoyed it quite a bit. I have been dealing with some major health issues with my aging mother and really needed a book that would draw me in enough to provide a distraction but wasn't so deep as to be a difficult read. I also needed an uplifting book but didn't want one so sappy that you could hear the violins playing in the background. This novel absolutely fit the bill. There were enough twists and turns in the story to keep me turning pages (one night way after I should have been asleep) but I knew everything would turn out well in the end which I found was very comforting. I knew where things were headed but I had no idea how we were going to get there. It isn't quite a five-star book for me, but it was pretty close.

I have already purchased "Hissy Fit" for my Kindle and will be looking to read other books of hers. Three very solid reads that I enjoyed a lot. Mary Kay Andrews is about to become a "go to" novelist for me
