Ok, I have to admit, I am now in love with the French country-side thanks to "Festival of Cherries". This was my first exposure to the writing style of Mandy Baldwin, but it definately won't be my last! She has a wonderful way of not only bringing her characters to life for the reader, but allows us a deep insight into them. I can't wait to share this book with my neighbors. Very strong 4 stars from me!
My rating system is as follows:

5 stars - Excellent, Worth Every Penny, Made It Into My Persona

Mandy Baldwin has done a splendid job in writing this book, even more so because of the shortness of the book. In the small amount of pages Baldwin has created believable characters, shown us their lives and woven a story around the reader.

This was a delightful little book that I received as a goodreads give away. I found it a bit difficult to get in to but once I did I enjoyed it. It quickly went from one character to another giving you some insight in to their lives.

I would have liked it to be more indepth and to have given a continuous thread to the characters lives instead of the choppy way it was done. I know this is a style of writing, just not one that I particularly enjoy.
