I loved this series - in fact its the only full series I have ever read as I am notorious for getting bored - I am the person who had only read the first 2 and a half books in the Harry Potter series and the 1st in Twilight so that proably proves that I am not a sticker! What I love about these books is that they are just really good stories - you feel like you are pulling up a chair with an old friend - there is nothing flash or massively thrilling about them - they are just really good tales of the cosy and not so cosy aspects of small town life, they are quite old fashioned in the way they are written I think, maybe even a little twee? but that is their charm - I think you have to like America and all things American to really enjoy them but most people would be able to relate - I loved the addition of the recipies in this book, as although at first glance it seems a little bizarre to have put them in, I had found myself wondering about some of the weird and wonderful dishes mentioned in the previous books (being from the U.K. and not from America I didn't recognise most of them 'Biscuits and Gravy' anyone???) I also found myself imagining what the characters would look like and who may play them in a film version - somthing I never do - I was really sad that I finished the series so I guess that means I am a fan!
