This book was my first of Frank's lowcountry books and sent me to all the others that I could find. It's a good book about finding one's self in the chaos of life.
What a delightful book! Funny and heartwarming!
This book had a lot of comedy, suspense and of course romance. The characters in the book come alive on each page.
Ms. Frank has a unique writing style that I have come to love. This was a nice story. It wasn't exceptional. A bit boring I might add, but the language and the phrasing and the conversations were witty and humorous. The story is about Linda and her 2 girls who come down to Shem creek after Linda decides she needs a new start especially for her wild teenager Gracie. Linda applies for a job at this restaurant owned by Brad. She gets the job because Brad takes an instant liking to her, even if she doesn't have experience in a restaurant. The story goes on with life that is intermingled between Brad and his son Alex, Linda and the girls and the restaurant employees that have become like family. Ms. Frank has a way with her descriptions of the atmosphere and the food so it's almost like being there. She is not Anne Rivers Siddons but she is pretty good in her own way.
Good reading. I give it 4 stars. North and South come together and form a happy union.
