I really should have read the Dry Creek books in some semblance of order! But no, I read one here and one there! And it's totally okay. I love this small town. Today I picked up the book with my beloved Mrs. Hargrove as the heroine. That made me so happy. She's a staple for the town, and now I finally know how her story played out!
Everyone deserves a happily ever after, no matte the age! So glad she got her own book for it!

When I read Small-Town Moms recently, I was pleasantly surprised by a secondary character named Mrs. Hargrove. She was the heroine's mentor and I liked her right away! Imagine my delight to find she had a book all to herself. Her story is very interesting, a little heart-breaking, but ultimately it's happy.
In her letter to the reader, Janet wrote, "Renewed love doesn't have an age limit. It's not just for those people who are beautiful or drive elegant cars. Love can also come from some unexpect

I read this book after some of the more recent ones, so it helped me to tie up loose ends in my mind!

At the same time, Charlie didn't know a secret about Mrs. Hargroves's past marriage that might show him that she might love again. A lonely young lady drifts into town on a motorcycle and becomes a part of the ...more

A sweet love story.

This is Mrs. Hargrove's story, and it is a delightful one. How refreshing it was to read a romance with an older couple featured, and to see that Christians have often gone through some very tough times that have helped strengthen their faith. When faced with some very embarrassing news, openness and honesty are the path chosen, which is a great lesson for all of us, although a difficult one to act on.

It was finally Edith Hargrove and Charlie Nelson's turn for a book.

Janet added an interesting twist from the past.

Another top notch book.

Although the grandson Ben was called Brad in this book.
