A special thank you to NetGalley and Random House for an ARC in exchange for an honest review.
I've been a fan of Fannie Flagg's writing and have read most of her books. Her books are like comfort food, like tea and a duvet on a rainy day, or like a hug from an old friend.
The book started out delightful and charming, typical of Flagg, with (mostly) likeable characters with lots of appeal and just the right amount of quirkiness, but then it got silly... I like the premise of the book, the birth of a town in the 1800s right through to 2021, but I could have done without the subplot in the cemetery—this was corny and unnecessary.
All-in-all, a fun read.
