BLAME IT ON THE MISTLETOE
Is There Really a Fountain of Youth in Paradise?
Welcome back to Bright 's Pond, where strange happenings are afoot at the Greenbrier Nursing Home. Strange even for Bright 's Pond. The residents suddenly act like kids again riding trikes, climbing trees, and of all things falling in love. Some of the townsfolk blame it on the crooked new gazebo, or its builder, a quirky little man who quotes Don Quixote, collects water from the fountain at the Paradise trailer park, and disappears on a regular basis.
While Chief of Police Mildred Blessing investigates the mystery, Griselda and her friends deal with a luau Thanksgiving, preparations for the Christmas pageant, and maybe even an upcoming wedding. Only, in Bright 's Pond, nothing ever really goes as planned . . .
Joyce Magnin writes stories that will make you feel good, always a good laugh with her quirky characters. I totally loved this book! If you can imagine nursing home residents riding tricycles down the hallway you'll get a kick out of these folks. Throw in a good mystery and you have the perfect Christmas read. This series is fun and heartwarming.
I received a copy of this book free from the publisher in exchange for an honest review.
