Review of Goodness Gracious Green
I absolutely loved this book. I read the first book, Gone to Green, and I enjoyed the way the story flowed. A reader could still pick up the second book and still love the characters. Goodness Gracious Green has that small-town, southern charm. The relationship between Lois and her sweetheart, Chris, is sweet and clean. I enjoyed the way the author deals with big topics such as racism and corruption without being obvious about it. The characters are all unique, and they pour such realism and charm into the book. The author brings in all different age group, races, and backgrounds into the story of Green. This is one of the rare Christian adult fiction reads that actually has good lessons and morals to learn from.
I highly recommend this book to gals thirteen and up. Sure, it’s meant for adults, but I found it a wonderful book to read.
I rate this book five out of five stars.
