I should have been happy and stopped after
"The Mill River Recluse", but I felt I should read the other two books to see if they (hopefully) compared to the first book, and they were both a little disappointing.
Anyone who enjoys reading about small town life and neighborhoods who genuinely care about one another will enjoy this series of books by Darcie Chan. Typical small town with many realistic problems and secrets. Enjoyable read!!!
I enjoyed reading about the backgrond about the priest when he was a young boy and the back story about his spoon obsession was so sad yest heart warming,
Learning how Emily and her family were doing made me happy. So wish I could actually see her finished work on the mansion. The descriptions of the work she did as well as the problems that happened during the renovations made it seem so real.
Do not know if Darcie Chan's next book will continue in Mill River, regardless I can not wait to read her next book.
Although it is not necessary to read the books in succession, it does make the people feel so real.
Congratulations on a wonderfully written story!
I am anxiously awaiting Ms. Chan's next book.
