I liked it! Sure it's not the greatest piece of literature I've ever read,
but there's a lot about it that's just plain fun to read. Ave Maria is a plain old pharmacist with a kind of boring life that she seems to feel was meant for her to live. That is, until later on in the book. Her romantic experiences are few and far between. And there are so few eligible, and suitable for her, men in this tiny town ... what's a thirtyfivish spinster supposed to do? But along comes a piece of information that rocks her world totally off kilter!
I liked the bookmobile librarian too. She's really something, and a woman who is definitely not going to let life pass her by. Maybe I got a special kick out of her role because I am a retired bookmobile librarian. But oh how different my life was from hers!! Good story. Worth the time it takes to read it if you're in the mood for down homey, lightly romantic kind of stuff.
