This author uses all the characters in all the books, and I love that. Some series focus on just one character, while I'm anxious to read about everybody. This series is wonderful.
But why did she have Claire to say, when she was worried that she might have cancer:"but most cancers are curable nowadays".
Where did she get that idea? Millions of people are still dying from cancer. It really irks me when authors make dumb/incorrect statements like that.
One other thing bothered me: in other books in the series, but especially in this one, so many people say that Lacey is plain/homely. Why focus so much on looks? That statement did not need to be in the books, although it does go along with the plot of this book. But could have made it a less cruel observation with another descriptive word.
And the trouble they get into in Chapel Springs. This time, while working on wedding details for the twins and an upcoming art tour and a play, Claire ends up getting intimately involved in the gold fever sweeping the town. Unfortunately, the gold is not what interests the out-of-town big guns, but the quartz. Mining the quartz would nearly destroy the town and an unknown buyer is snatching up mining rights that were somehow not attached to properties, and attempting to get residents or landlords to sell.
Lacey suffers a painful crisis when she is involved in a freak accident and her life changes radically. The only hope she has is in turning her eyes to God.
Fortunately, Claire is not responsible for Lacey's accident. The other big crash heard around the hamlet was Claire's fault, but on purpose. She knows what those big ol ceramic pots can do from experience and feels the need to do it.
Claire and Patsy are friends I'd love to meet with at Dee's. Mulligan sprinkles chuckles on nearly every page as the characters get involved with saving the town, making Lacey's script magical and rocking a wedding and reception. Claire even managed to get through the wedding with both feet on the ground. If you love characters and fun, clean escapism grab this one. If you haven't read the others you should probably buy the whole series. I was provided with an advanced reader copy for review purposes. I was not required to give a positive review in exchange.
We're back to our heroes, klutzy Claire, her best friend Patsy, and her husband Rob. Plus several other friends and almost-enemies (like the Mayor). Claire is looking forward to her twins' wedding. Megan and Melissa always dreamed about having a double wedding, and that dream is about to come true. In addition, there's a community play underway.
Claire is also trying to be brave. The symptoms she's having--Could she be pregnant at her advanced age of 49? Or *shudder* is it cancer? She's afraid to talk to anyone--even Patsy--about it. Eventually, she'll have to deal with it, but with so much going on there's just no time. At least, that's her excuse to not go to the doctor. Not until after the wedding. And after the play (she's helping prepare the stage settings). And after, oh, anything else. Maybe the symptoms will go away on their own.
As per usual with Claire, there are a few trips and falls and nosings into trouble, but Patsy and Rob always manage to get her up and going again.
If you need a lift, Life in Chapel Springs is definitely the place to find it.
I received this book free, prior to publication, to perform a beta read for the author, but this review is my own idea.
Life in Chapel Springs involves gold fever hitting the town, the twins' wedding preparations,PTSD displayed in an unusual way, Lacey's play, plus an old enemy of Chapel Springs. Plus mayhem and belly laughs! Did I mention uncontrollable belly laughs?
I love that Claire is learning to trust God with her problems. She is still working on her tongue control,however. No worries, she seems to have sturdy ankles for kicking!
"How did anyone do life without a best friend?"...
"Pat-a-cake kept her secrets and supported her better than an 18 Hour Bra."
I wish every second book I read could be comic relief, by Ane Mulligan about Chapel Springs!
I received an advanced reader's copy of this book from the author, but that in no way influenced my opinions, for which I am solely responsible.
