Fess up time...apparently, the computer was on and signed in on my screen name and my son decided to respond, not realizing it would come up as me! Then he tried to fix it by signing in as himself (MJ Strike) and adding a little comment. Lily Dale: Believing may not the best book I have ever read...but I guess it is my son's (and later I'll tell you all the story of how HE rewrote the ending!).
Mine too! I couldn't put it down. It was also the first Markham book that I read, and then I was hooked and had to get all of them. Definitely loved HELLO, IT'S ME...but BRIDE NEEDS GROOM was a very close second for me. I just love those Chickalini boys! :)
My favorite book is Dearly Beloved. I love the mood of the book and the contrasting personalities of Jennie, Sandy and Liza. The atmosphere of the Bramble Rose Inn adds to the sense of isolation and tension. It's fun to get lost in the story.
