Goodness Gracious Green!!!
This book review is for the novel "Goodness Gracious Green" by Judy Christie.
It is the second novel in her series. I previously reviewed the first book "Gone to Green" which you can read here... Gone To Green.
The second novel picks up where the first left off. Lois has just decided to stay in Green and keep the newspaper. It is new years day and she gets the surprise of a lifetime when the Big Boys show up on her doorstep bright and early to try and force her to sale 'The Green News Item' back to them. Lucky for her Mayor Eva shows up right after them and breaks up the uncomfortable situation. But keep in mind the Big Boys will not be put off. They want the newspaper back and they want it back right now.
Not so lucky for Lois, however, is that Eva's little bitty dog decides to bite her right on the face. Nothing like starting out the new year with a visit from enemies, a dog bite and a trip to the doctor right away for stitches.
Big changes are coming to Lois's life in the way of a best friend moving forward, which leaves her slightly sad, a man friend (who she can't quite determine if he means more to her than just a man friend) and a lot of fires at the newspaper and her home.
The book is quite intriguing and I liked diving right back into Green and what was going on. Since she picked up where the last book left off you didn't feel like you had missed anything. I liked the mystery of the fires and watching Lois grow as a grownup and in her faith. There is a little bit of everything, mystery, romance, faith, personal growth. Lots of going on in this book and I am eagerly anticipating reading the third book, "The Glory Of Green".
Happy Wednesday to you all!
