I am a huge fan of Tricia Goyer's writing. Her style is just so friendly and touching. I've never read a book of hers that I haven't enjoyed. (And I love the fact that following her on twitter gives a little insight into her day to day and her writing life.)
Additionally, I love the Home to Heather Creek series. This is the fifth book I've read in the series and each one is as good as the last. I feel like I know this family and I'm invested in their outcome. That's just the way the stories are written. You can't help but get involved!
About Sunflower Serenade:
A small-town summer...
The days are long and lazy, the corn is high, the sunflowers are in bloom, and everyone in Bedford is gearing up for the biggest event of the summer: the annual county fair. But when a Nashville music producer approaches Bob about using Heather Creek Farm to film a country star's new music video, he and Charlotte are faced with a dilemma. Will they allow the glamour and enticements of big-city life to encroach upon their peaceful home? Will the excitement of celebrity drown out the simple joys of summer?
About the Home to Heather Creek series: Charlotte Stevenson's world is turned upside down when her daughter, Denise, dies in a tragic car accident. She ran away at eighteen and Charlotte has never forgiven herself. Now, Denise's children, abandoned by their father, are coming from California to live on Heather Creek Farm in Bedford, Nebraska.
Charlotte is uncertain about her ability to care for three grandchildren who are not thrilled to give up the beach and sunshine for snow and farm chores! But she sees a chance to make amends and will do whatever it takes to keep her fragile family together. Feel the courage, strength and commitment of this family as their lives unfold in the Home to Heather Creek series.
