APRIL IN BLOOM by Annie Jones

This was the third book in this series and I enjoyed reading it. This story is about April Shelnutt, the oldest sister in the family. She is described in the beginning of the book very well. "April spent her weekdays running the Weed' Em and Reap Garden Supply and Nursery.. .. She'd set aside a couple of evenings a week for dinner with her sisters and their families, school plays,. . . And trying to keep one step ahead of her darling daddy was one of those on-call 24/7 deals.. . . .And today, she had built up enough steam, courtesy of a certain impossible-to-pin-down sheriff, to run the town's power plant for a week." When 90 year old Miss Cora injures herself at Sheriff Mulldoon's place, April finds herself caring for Miss Cora and both April and the Sheriff try to stay clear of each other, but only find themselves spending more and more time together. Love is definitely in the air.

It was a fun to read story, with alot of fun parts and also alot of lessons to be learned in the lives of these folks. The author does a good job of communicating a message in her stories of a serious nature, but makes you enjoy yourself while doing it. Although you can read this as a stand alone, it would help you understand April's family and the town much better if you read the other books, especially book one, although book two was my favorite.
