“Settle back in a comfortable chair and enjoy your visit to Covington, a town rich with charm and character” (Debbie Macomber, New York Times bestselling author) with this continuation of a heartwarming series about three sixty-something women who have moved to a small mountain town in North Carolina.
The three ladies of Covington—Grace, Hannah, and Amelia—must rebuild their old farmhouse after a fire destroys three houses on their road. Max proposes a marriage of convenience to Hannah, in which she can continue living with the other ladies, but also inherit his estate and Bella’s Park without having to pay taxes, and Hannah is conflicted about his offer.
Meanwhile, when Grace’s companion Bob has a heart attack, she moves in with him to take care of him, then must decide whether to stay with him as he wishes, or return to the newly built farmhouse with Hannah and Amelia. And through it all, the crisis of the fire deepens their relationships with their local Covington neighbors.
Lovely story and relaxing to read
I enjoyed reading about the three different main characters and how they each respond to the same big life event.
The backdrop the book is set against is gorgeous, too.
Reading from the point of view, too, of characters much older than me was uplifting and enlightening.
