At the end of A Superstitious Christmas, we were left wondering who Maggie would choose, Grandberry Falls hometown boy Mitch or her fiancé, NYC hotshot Grady. We know where her heart lies, but the pull of the city is strong. Of course the path to true love never runs smoothly, and many misunderstandings ensue, and Maggie's push towards her final decision comes from an unlikely source. It was so wonderful to revisit the good folks of Grandberry Falls...I even found myself liking Grady by the end!
Tonya has penned another winner...her books just make you feel good!
It was so great to have a reunion with the gang from Grandberry Falls. I just hope the next one won't be so long in coming. Granny is still up to her tricks with her match making no matter if the intended couple believes it will never happen. I love this small town and all the characters in it.
Very enjoyable read. I have added Tonya Kappes to my favorite author list. I have now read several of her book and have enjoyed them all.
