LINNY'S SWEET DREAM LIST
Willow Hill #1
Releasing Jan 5th, 2016
Set in the off-beat Southern town of Willow Hill, North Carolina, Susan Schild’s moving and witty novel tells of one woman who loses everything—and finds more than she ever expected.
At thirty-eight, Linny Taylor is suddenly living a life she thought only happened to other, more careless people. Widowed for the second time, and broke, thanks to her cheating late husband, Linny has no house, no job, and no options except to go back home. There, in a trailer as run down as her self-esteem, Linny makes a list of things that might bring happiness. A porch swing. A job that nourishes her heart as well as her bank balance. Maybe even a date or two.
At first, every goal seems beyond reach. But it’s hard for Linny to stay in the doldrums when a stray puppy is coercing her out of her shell—right into the path of a kind, compassionate vet. The quirky town is filled with friends and family, including Linny’s mother, Dottie, who knows more about heartache than her daughters ever guessed. And as Linny contemplates each item on her list, she begins to realize that the dreams most worth holding on to are measured not in worldly success, but in the sweetness of a life lived to the fullest.
I love this book, is sweet and touching but also funny and full of humor
Linny is really sad and embittered. She doesn't even forty years and has already lost two husbands. Her first husband died because of a snake bite. Then she was enchanted by the charm of Buck. They got married within weeks of their first meeting and she had entrusted to him all her money, she thought he knew manage them better than her. After his death, she has found that he was cheating on her and that he had spent all her money. Now she is alone, with no money and no job, forced to live in a camper near her mother's house. But she doesn't give up and doesn't lose hope. With the help of a little dog and following a particular list she will be able to find the strength to return to live and smile.
I liked all of the characters are very realistic and are people I would like to know. I also love the setting, this amazing small town of North Caroline.
Lots of colorful characters, a strong plot, a fabulous heroine and a sweet little dog make this book a great one!
If you enjoy reading sweet romance, then definitely pick this up!
