This is Book 2 of the Job's Corner set. The first is 'The Remember Box'. I thought they were both good book, but I liked this one a bit better, probably because I was already familiar with the characters and didn't need to spend the first 100 pages of the book getting into the story. It's a good story. A bit of 'everyday' life in a small southern town in the early 1950's. There is 'domestic violence', the solving of a murder, weddings....
I kind of wish there were a 3rd, just to catch up on chara
LOVE, LOVE this book and the series! Once again, Carley takes you in her world, in Job's Corner with compassion! I really felt like I could identify with her and all the people in Job's Corner. It drew me in page by page! The author did an awesome job with the descriptions of the characters and time! *****'s to this fanstasic series!!!!

This is the sequel to The Remember Box. Not quite as good but still a slice of life from the 1950s.

Very neatly wrapped up at the end; perhaps too neatly?

Aka Patricia Houck Sprinkle.

When I met and married Bob, he looked over our budget and demanded, "Why don’t you write a mystery to pay for all the ones you buy?" I immediately knew I wanted to put a body in a building where I’d once worked. However, being over-endowed with the Protestant ethic, I wrote "important" things first and only wrote the mystery in my spare time, so my first mystery, Murder
