"Enlightenment Now: The Case for Reason, Science, Humanism, and Progress"

A lifelong avid reader, at the age of forty-five with no experience and no training, she decided to see if she could write a book.

At first I was a bit confused since I hadn't read the first books to know who's who. But the author made it easy to follow and I soon felt a part of the story. I think this was a catching up of characters and introducing new ones? I laughed so many times, even got mad, sad, and had tears as well. I'll admit I want more of Michael and Laken's story so I can understand what he sees in her. So glad to see that it's available. Hoping to read more in this series. Maybe Spike gets a story soon?
In the end, I really want to live in Sweetgrass Springs!
There is so much going on in this story it's hard to summarize but one thing is for sure. Sweetgrass Springs, Texas and the residents seem to have a way of soothing batter souls and helping people who are a bit lost find a home. That's exactly what it does for Michael and Laken. When Michael shows up in Sweetgrass to meet the brother he never knew he had, he knows for certain he's found home. Getting past the hurts and pains of the past might prove to be too much to let him stay though.
I highly recommend this one!
We are back in the town of Sweetwater where we find Scarlett in the later stages of her pregnancy driving both Ian and Ruby crazy with worry. Then we are introduced to Michael who has come to Sweetwater to find a brother that he just found out that he has. His brother is Ian , the son of Gordon and Sophia. Sophia left both Gordon and Ian when Ian was just a small child. As the story is unfolding , we find out why Sophia left and also see Michael struggling to befriend his newfound brother. In addition to this storyline, we are introduced to Laken the girl that Michael is in love with and trying to win over. The unfolding relationship between Gordon and his ex wife Sophia is both heartbreaking and inspiring. Each character has a difficult time reconciling themselves to unexpected revelations and changing relationship dynamics. The characters are all so likable you can't help but wish for everyone's happy ending and again want to move to Sweetwater!
I thoroughly enjoyed this new book in the series even as it brought me to tears on several occasions!
I liked Laken and Michael, enjoyed Ruby and her sense of saving a town and Ian, Scarlett, and Ian's parents who make a brief but vital appearance. If you enjoy stories about small towns, the people who live in them and the complex interrelationships that towns where everyone knows everyone else, this is a good book for you.
This story of love, Ian and Scarlett and planning for a new baby, forgiveness, Sophia (mother) and Ian, finding out you have a brother, Michael, you didn't know existed, and bringing old loves Sophia (mother) and Gordon (father) back together for a second chance at being a family is what this magical town of Sweetgrass Springs is all about. Lots of tears but lots of happiness and love that will always prevail..
When Michael Cavanaugh’s father dies, and his mother (Sophia Bancroft McLaren Cavanaugh) decides to tell Michael about his half-brother, things in Michael's life change drastically. Not only does he have a half-brother, but he has much more family in Sweetgrass Springs. I don't write spoilers - BUT OMG - the story that is told is amazing!!! I stayed up till almost midnight, just to finish and find out exact WHAT would happen. This is an amazing story within an amazing series!!!
NOW I just have to wait and see if the series continues and when I'll get to read more of this series!!!
