This was kind of fun, pretty light and easy to read. There were a few stories within the book that I felt didn't seem to go anywhere, but generally I enjoyed this. It was nice reading for bedtime.

This is the third book I have read by Bailey White, and although her characters are fun, and created based on real people, I don't enjoy her style of writing. This book felt very much like her short stories, it was very choppy with both stories and characters. It ended in a completely strange and abrupt manner as well. Perhaps she is setting up for a sequel? it's a quick, fun read, but not my favorite author.

This was a delightful, light hearted story. Very interesting characters, a little romance and a little craziness all tossed together.

No deeper message or long-lasting impact, but I really enjoyed reading this book.

A disappointment. Utterly without plot and filled with eccentric characters who never become more than names on a page, this episodic tale of a Georgia plant pathologist, his family and friends, wanders pointlessly until it dribbles to an unsatisfying end.
