What a heartwarming and tender series. I cried and laughed and was able to really put myself in Partonville as one of the residents. Some thought provoking situations that end up centering around God and Scripture. Enjoy all 6 in the series and would highly recommend them to all.
This is a wonderful series that takes place in a small town. The main character,"Dorothy" is 87 year old young woman who has a heart of gold. If you enjoy the Mitford books you'll like this one.
Great, easy read. Relaxing and comfortable. The main character is an elderly woman, which is quite unusual. She is very likable, as are just about all the characters. It feels like home.
More fun in Partonville!!! Jacob moves back to Partonville and Katie thaws toward him. There's a competition for mayor. And a mall-naming contest. All interwoven for a hilarious ride!
#6 in series. The last one and I haven't heard there will be more, but there sure should be more to "tie up" the story lines.

Charlene Ann Baumbich does an excellent job of keeping you interested in the happenings and dramas of Pardon-me-ville!
Fun series! Not near as good as the Mitford series, but enjoyable nonetheless. Read this instead of doing homework...
Can't believe there is no No 7, what a shame. Things r left hanging in the air. Great series

I like Ms. Baumbich's unfolding story in Partonville.
