I wanted to be at Cub Creek, to help Libbie with the old house and be her friend. Grace writes such descriptive stories!

Libbie Havens had a difficult childhood and is trying to overcome the past, and move on with her life. When she happens upon the house, on Cub Creek, it's probably the best thing that ever happened to her. She buys the house, goes about renovating it and starts meeting people and making friends. Then, something happens that threatens to bring everything crashing down around her

Good read. Interesting characters. Mystery and a little love story. To me the characters make a book. And this book has quite a few. Lobbied is a strange young woman with a strange past. She is a loner and likes it that way. You will route for her to come out of her shell. She has only one relative, and she has two kids. Gruesome a significant part of the story. Read and enjoy.

I really enjoyed this book. I loved the characters and the storyline flowed well. This was a story of forgiveness and healing. It was a story of accepting ourselves for who we are and not trying to be what others want us to be. I will be reading many more books by this author. Wonderful!

A good read

A good read

learning to forgive oneself is hard to do but the main character finally did through the help of a new friend and an incidental couple.

Cub Creek is a book unlike any other I have read recently! Greene drew me in with the descriptive details of the Cub Creek home and scenery. I wanted to be there on the porch watching the entire story unfold! The whole story has this otherworldly feeling, I was never white sure what was going to unfold next! I loved Libbie and silently cheered her on as she made changes and learned to believe in herself! If you enjoy a mysterious clean read with beautiful scenery while a great story unfolds, ...more

I guess I have been reading to many personal growth fiction books. This book is about realizing that the way you live your life doesn't have to be the way someone else lives theirs. Accepting who you are and looking at the events of your life in a new and adult way. It is suppose to be a mystery and it is just a little bit, but I wish the author had just come out with the so called mystery and didn't try to build the book upon it. It really is a very nice story about self acceptance and personal ...more

After surviving a sad and traumatic youth, 33 year old Libbie Havens has finally found her "sweet spot" (huh?) - an old home outside of Charlottesville, VA. Living alone in the country agrees with her, but she must overcome a few obstacles before she can find the balance and peace that has alluded her. Lots of friendly characters populate this small town!

Ms. Greene’s characters are interesting and her setting well-constructed.

Read full review in the 2014 September issue of InD’tale Magazine.

Good story

I couldn't put this book down. I loved her kindness to Joyce and how she tried with Tommy, but in the end she was able to help him and his mother. Like I said good story, and easy to read.

Mysterious page turner

I was not expecting much but was pleasantly surprised. Cub Creek was the first I'd read by Grace Greene and I'm looking forward to reading more of her books.

A rather strange but compelling book The main character is definitely flawed which makes us who are not perfect really appreciate her.
