REVIEW: Oh man…I didn’t want Susan Sdhild’s new book “An Azalea Lake Christmas” to come to an end. It was so good. I absolutlely and whole heartedly fell in love with this book. Now, you all know that I don’t re-read books. I might just have to read this series from beginning to end when it is finished. That will be a first for me but, it is that good!
I thought I was in love with the first book! Pecan Pie for Breakfast was great but, An Azalea Lake Chirstmas just out did it. There are so many good things to say about this book so, I’ll get to it. Number one on the top of my list are the characters. Everyone of them are awesome. Well, except for one and she is the ex-wife of the love interest across the street named Hank. Oh! By the way, Hank is a hunk. Cricket is the main character and feels a little less than the beautiful ex. There are her friends, neighbors, Her dad and his new wife and just a slew of people I would like to call my own.
Cricket is not a young chick either. She is 46 years old and Hank is about her age. Susan’s characters are of an older generation. Younger than me but, it is still enjoyable to read about people who are closer to my way of thinking. They are not party people and more family oriented. Of course, her parents are closer to my age! Mr. P across the street is older than me. So, there is a lot to like about these folks.
The setting is in a small town. Not huge and not dinky. Actually, it is on a lake and Lake Azalea has a town associated with it. There is a lot going on in their little world. It will keep you interested and reading your day away. I love the days when I have the house to myself and don’t feel a bit of guilt spending the day with my nose in a book. An Azalea Lake Christmas was so enjoyable!
If you like good clean fiction, older characters and a setting that you could see yourself living in, then these books are for you. They are written in such a way that they stand alone. There is no confusion. I can’t say it enough, these books give me all the feels. I am so satisfied when I get done that I have a bit of a hangover. So, what are you waiting for? It’s Christmas soon and you can just go ahead and buy yourself a little Christmas present. Don’t ask. Just do it. You won’t regret it for a moment. Happy Reading!

SYNOPSIS: USA Today Bestselling Author Susan Schild presents another heartwarming and cozy romance featuring heroines over 40! The sequel to fan favorite, Pecan Pie for Breakfast, is finally here…
After a rocky divorce, 46-year-old Cricket is grateful to finally be settled. With a flourishing business and a budding romance with her handsome neighbor, Hank, life finally seems both calm and promising. But then, Hank’s glamorous ex-wife cruises into town looking to rekindle her romance with him and maybe even remarry him. To add to her worries, Cricket is forced to leave her cozy apartment and scramble to find another place to live.
What Cricket really wants is to be married to a good, kind man like Hank and live in a cottage on the banks of Azalea Lake. Instead of letting the uncertainties in her life scare her into settling, Cricket takes charge. She gathers courage and sets out to build the life she has only let herself dream about.
With crazy fun girlfriends, RV camping trips, and home fix-up and house hunting in a wild real estate market, Cricket sets out to build her dream life. Will she finally say yes to love and find her happily ever after?
