Steve, Jackie and their colorful friends and family embark on the many events and activities of small town life, including baked goods of a suspicious nature, strange Avon lady gifts, and a long list of odd romances, not the least of which involve their son, Brandon. But when a second brother, long estranged from Steve due to conflict, arrives in their lives, the family is tested in their relationships, finances, and homestead.
PJ Colando captured me from the opening lines and pulled me into the warmth and love in Steve and Jackie's lives. With vivid descriptions, I was transported into Steve's cow barn, smelled the cookies in Jackie's kitchen, and felt like I personally knew all the lively characters presented. Colando has a great knack for capturing the day to day humor that surrounds such engaging personalities without sounding forced. Every character was believable and captivating as they moved through their own curious story lines. And beneath the peculiar and comical antics, the underlying strength and support of a Midwestern farming community shone through every line. This is a great read for anyone looking to sit back and be absorbed into real life with a dose of good chuckles and imaginative twists.
