Second book in series -- and I've requested the next two. Author does a great job of updating from the previous book but not retelling the whole thing -- as some authors do.

Interesting stories of three ladies who thought they were at the end of the road and have made a new home and life together -- encompassing their adult children, new friends and new loves.

If you enjoy a good read about the small, but extremely important, things in life, I believe you will enjoy this series. This is the second book in the series and I enjoyed it as much as the first. The ladies are settling into life in Covington: making friends, falling in and out of love, planning weddings, going into business, and rallying the community to stop the progression of development in their beloved valley. The characters draw you into their everyday lives.

A nice read about Hannah, Amelia and Grace, 3 ladies who have relocated to Covington, NC from Pennsylvania to spend their retirement years. A sequel to "The Ladies of Covington Send Their Love", the story picks up again with the ladies and their adventures - weddings, ice storms, TV reporters and tearooms all play a part.

Interesting, especially since I'm familiar with the area around Asheville, NC

The Gardens of Covington joyously celebrates women and friendship, families and love, laughing through the tears, thinking with the head and the heart. The ladies, so real and inspiring, will make you wish you lived in their small town and that they were your neighbors.

I agree thoroughly with the above. Just pure enjoyment reading it.

Initially found this hard to get into... not as fast as the others but once I got past that slow start it was hard to put down. Another great story about the 3 ladies and their lovely new friends and neighbors as well as some info about their families

Second in the Ladies of Covington Series. Like it. I believe there are three. Have only read the first two.

This is the second in the series. These women - of a "certain age" - are growing and learning to cope with so much more than just growing older. What a joy to read!

The ladies are at it again in this sequel to Medlicott's successful debut, The Ladies of Covington Send Their Love. Amelia, Grace and Hannah are now happily ensconced in their beautiful old farmhouse in the foothills of North Carolina, but when developers threaten to turn their Eden into a condo haven, Hannah at least is up in arms. Grace and her lover, Bob, are busy preparing to open a tearoom and Amelia's photography talent continues to bloom. She falls for a man she meets in a fender-bender, but the new romance isn't all sweetness and light; she hides her suspicions about the gent, whom both her roommates dislike. Grace loves the tearoom and her relationship with Bob, but worries about what to tell him regarding his request to build a cabin on the women's property, even as she tries to keep the nuptials of Bob's widowed son, Russell, on track. Hannah encounters resistance as well as support in her crusade against the developers; she is reminded that she is a newcomer and a Yankee, and that some interpret her assistance as interloping. The women befriend their charming but frail neighbor, Ms. Maxwell, only shortly before her death but she is to play an important role in the drama. The theme of friendship among older women is appealing, Medlicott still knows how to charm her target audience.

A heart-warming tale. Very enjoyable read - especially if you read the first book in the series. This is the 2nd book.

I like the fact that the author did not retell the entire story from the first book, as some authors do. Also I like that the ladies are much stronger and independent than they were in the first book.
