    This wasn t terrible, but it lacks that spark of magic Allen s readers have grown to love Late in the book there s a chapter called The Joker, the Stick Man, the Princess, and the Freak That should have been the book s title There s not really anything about peach keeping in the story except one little thing near the end that feels like it was tossed in to justify th

    Rating 3.5The Peach Keeper tells the story of the people that live in Walls of Water, North Carolina Focusing on a select few, their friendships, their loves, their struggles, and their secrets The Blue Ridge Madam is a very old house that is being restored to her former glory The story is a bit about that restoration, the grand gala that is being thrown for it, the people t

    I guess the only thingpredictable than this book was my reaction to it Once again I let myself be fooled by a high goodreads rating despite the fact that Winter Garden and lots of other dumb or mostly dumb chicklit books had high ratings as well I should have known when I saw there was magic realism which I almost never enjoy it usually feels like a deux ex machina to me , though al

    Confession I sent my husband out last night to retrieve this book for me while I made dinner for the kids and tried to breathe deeply This pregnancy .it palls, you guys The thing is, he was happy to do it and even after some creative detective work snagged the very last copy at our local bookstore I was incredibly relieved Because all I wanted to do last night, after dinner and talking to m

    Summer A Thon Read a book while enjoying a summer y drinkI read this book while drinking lemonade, iced coffee, and a strawberry smoothie This book surprised me I didn t know what to expect going in, the synopsis made it sound like a Gothic mystery which it was But it also contained some magical realism, which is usually a huge turn off for me but I didn t mind it this time Magical realism usually

    Willa Jackson and Paxton Osgood come together to honor their grandmothers Along the way they find a mysterious murder, what your coffee order says about you, and most importantly themselves Sarah Addison Allen always introduces a number of interesting characters and we even got a glimpse of the Waverlys catering a party which was a nice surprise My favorite parts about this one was the Blue Ridge Madam the house t

    Three stars, because I liked it A good relaxing read The Blue Ridge Madam built by Willa s great great grandfather and once the finest home in Walls of Water, North Carolina has stood for years as a monument to misfortune and scandala skeleton is found buried beneath the property s lone peach tree, long kept secrets come to lightThese words got me reading this book The rest of the blurb made it a dubious possibility, but

    I really disliked this book That said, I really enjoyed Addison Allen s other titles, but this one read too chick lit ish for me I didn t feel like Colin, Paxton, or Willa were as interesting as her usual characters, nor did I feel like their problems were very difficult or compelling I mean, Colin felt like his youth was rough because his friends considered him to be tightly wound How horrible And what were Paxton s reasons for staying
