I wanted to like these books, but there are too many inconsistencies and unnecessary events that have no relation to the plot.
This is part of a series set in Morning Shade. Stella Diamond lives with her mother-in-law who is "not long for this world" as she tells everybody, and her newly widowed daughter, along with two dogs and a stroppy cat. This story starts out with a chain letter from one person, then another starts a chain letter asking for more money and so on.

CeeCee, Maude, Stella, and company are back. This one has to do with chain letters. The new guy in the neighborhood is trying to win CeeCee in a most juvenile way. This guy can't take a hint! He flings spitballs at people's heads in church and Stella has to stare him down like the juvenile that he is. He's big on gags, causing many gags.

Stella claims that she's "only hanging on by a thread" and still reading the obits. She wants to be able to help Maude financially.

This book was too repetitive and too similar to the first in the series. I give it 2 1/2 stars.
This was cute, light reading. Perfect when you want to be entertained, but don't want to think too hard. Engaging characters, a little mystery, a little humor.
this series of books makes me constantly thankful and they're quick, happy little reads. very nice when you're going out of the ordinary. they're quirky characters are hilarious.
