Earlene Fowler’s Love Mercy--An appeal for another adventure
I read this book when it first came out and I loved it. The paperback is coming out this Tuesday and in her recent newsletter (view that HERE), Earlene said the publisher hasn’t requested a sequel but I think if you read this book, you’ll want to take another trip with these characters.
Love Mercy is still grieving the loss of her husband when her long lost granddaughter sweeps into town with a stolen banjo and an attitude. (see the entire review on my other blog HERE) The book revolves around 3 women, all with stories to tell and hearts to mend, but it’s not a romance by any stretch of the imagination.
My first brush with Earlene’s work was the Benni Harper quilting mysteries, which take place in Central California and features museum director and rancher Benni, her husband, Gabe, the chief of police and assorted friends and relatives, including her spitfire grandma, Dove. The newest Benni book, State Fair, is also coming out this Tuesday! Hooray! I’ve missed that girl. The Saddlesmakers’ Wife, a stand alone book, was also a good story with a strong heroine.
So, give Love Mercy a read, if you will. Then maybe Earlene’s publisher will beg her for another tale of strong women on the California coast! Here’s where to find it on Amazon.
