Definitely not as good as Waters of Marah. It was pretty good though until close to the end when the author pens one of the characters thoughts. And that was much too much TMI for a Christian book. I don't think that it added to the book to say that he fantisized about how she would look with her clothes off. When his thoughts went farther than that, I thought it was a bit too much. It really was a distraction and not meaningful to the plot at all.
"When Gloria Bickford moves back to her hometown, she knows she needs to make peace with a lot of people. There's the mother Gloria has never failed to disappoint, whose facade of perfection covers a painful secret. There's the odious Cutter Press, who caused Gloria so much humiliation last year. There's her confident best friend, whose life is suddenly in meltdown. And there's her cookie-baking grandmother, whose senility is taking a bizarre but delicious form.
Gloria's relationship problems make her year in Eckerd City - and her crusade to expose the illegal tactics of environmentalists - seem a lifetime ago. But when a mysterious stalker begins dogging her steps, she realizes that she's brought a big-city problem home to Appelton."
