When the short bypass around Green opens with much fanfare, downtown dries up faster than cement on the roadway. Businesses close and the hospital becomes a clinic. Mayor Eva must decide whether to sell her historic store or close it. The Holey Moley Antique Mall seems less like a dream and more like a nightmare. While the road is progress to some, it seems to be leading Green toward a national trend--a town that is merely a shadow of itself.
With the town going backwards, Lois is both intrigued and jealous when a fellow business owner come up with a strategy to save Green. But can his plan rescue the town from the path it's on?

kickiInyokern, CAAge: 55-65Gender: female3 Stars Out Of 5Just One Off CenterJuly 19, 2013kickiInyokern, CAAge: 55-65Gender: femaleQuality: 4Value: 3Meets Expectations: 3Judy's narrative writing style is spot-on. Her character development leaves just enough holes to keep you intrigued. The dogs are a fresh twist from a traditional sounding board or side-kick. Each of the five books in this series are enjoyable. The 'political' issues were solid and needed to be addressed. My 'off-center' perspective came from Jean, a woman' pastor. Call me a stickler for biblical accuracy, but Jean kept Green from hitting a home-run. Why not have had Jean, as the pastor's wife being that incredible role model? Conforming to the world pushed Green to gray.
Army MomAge: 45-54Gender: female4 Stars Out Of 5Another cute read.February 17, 2013Army MomAge: 45-54Gender: femaleQuality: 4Value: 4Meets Expectations: 4This installment takes us though the year that the community sets out to save downtown, starting with Lois and Chris buying the local ice cream store and restoring it hoping it will draw people downtown again. We also get to solve a decades old mystery and see some old friends and foes.
The book was written well as were all the others, and the characters remained true.
The only thing I was very disappointed in was that this book picks up with Lois and Chris's child already born. I would have loved to go through Lois' pregnancy. That would have been so much fun.
