About the Author
While a large, floppy straw hat is her favorite, Ane has worn many different ones: hairdresser, legislative affairs director (that's a fancy name for a lobbyist), drama director, playwright, humor columnist, and novelist. Her lifetime experience provides a plethora of fodder for her Southern-fried fiction (try saying that three times fast). She firmly believes coffee and chocolate are two of the four major food groups. President of the award-winning literary site, Novel Rocket, Ane resides in Suwanee, GA, with her artist husband, her chef son, and two very large dogs.

At times I wanted to shake Claire for speaking out so quickly, but that was part of her personality.
These books were well worth my time and were inexpensive on Kindle.
After being declared “drab and dreary”, the ladies decide the town needs a bit of sprucing up, so they decide to get the other shop owners involved — and give Chapel Springs the revival it needs.
Weddings, marital issues, business concerns, friendships — you name it — the girls are knee-deep in it. I have a feeling they’re up to the challenge, but maybe you should read it for yourself and see.
When faced with adversity (including or marriages in need of some excitement — or at least encouragement), instead of throwing in the towels, they’re determined to find a solution.
Let me encourage you to read Chapel Springs Revival . . . it may be just what you need — to help you find the encouragement to face your problems head on!
Ane Mulligan brings Chapel Springs to life with humor, love, and lots of great characters. This is an excellent debut novel — and the first of [hopefully] many Chapel Springs stories. Stay with me for my review of the next book in the series, Chapel Springs Survival…
God bless you!
Ane Mulligan is excellent at putting the reader in the mind of the characters. You’ll love Claire and all the folks from Chapel Springs. I found myself laughing out loud every chapter! If you’re looking for a fun summer read with an encouraging message, I highly recommend Chapel Springs Revival.
The two BFFs not only sense the need for a makeover of their tourist town, but it seems the luster in their marriages has also worn off. Each faces a different issue with her long time marital relationship, based on misunderstandings fueled by assumptions and lack of communication.
The close bond between the two friends leads Patsy to serve as klutzy Claire’s protector from her many mishaps, almost to a fault. The descriptions are real enough to make the reader feel she could step right into the pages of the book and join the girls for a cup of coffee and a delectable donut at Dee’s ‘n’ Doughs Bakery in Chapel Springs. The author’s research is apparent in her portrayal of the professions of her characters, who pursue two different facets of the creative arts.
Despite the hilarious scenes crafter throughout the book, Ane tackles some not so humorous topics. Lessons are learned about relationships, facing reality, and dealing with life’s disappointments with a healthy dose of laughter.
I would recommend this book to anyone who likes stories centered in a small town that deal with the hard facts of marriage, the devotion of true friendship, and a heaping helping of sometimes outrageous humor.
Ane Mulligan has definitely captured my interest as a novelist and I look forward to reading more work from her.
