I recently stumbled across this author's Valentine, OK series and wondered how it took me so long to find this funny, wonderful, heart-warming series! My enjoyment has grown with each book in the series and this one is far and away my favourite! I am particularly enraptured with her deft and realistic handling of the older characters in this series, especially in this book. My biggest disappointment is the fact that there are only, at this writing, two more books in the series after this one. I think I want to move to Valentine, Oklahoma because I love my time spent there!
