This and #4 in the series are the best ones so far, though all 5 titles are worth the time and money!

This book showed a community come together in the midst of tragedy.
This is the 3rd book in the Green series by Judy Christie. This series continues to be fun and enjoyable to read. Christie has a great way of keeping you on the edge of your seat always rooting for things to work out in my now beloved town of Green, Louisiana. I don't want to spoil the surprises that are in store with this book, so I will just say, sit back and enjoy The Glory of Green.
I give each book and the whole series a hearty 5 stars.
The Green series by Judy Christie follows the story of Lois,owner of the Green newspaper, but is filled with plenty of other well developed characters who each have their own plot-lines. These books keep the reader hoping. They are fast paced but thoroughly entertaining.
The Glory of Green, book 3 in the Green Series, finds Lois planning her wedding. Things seem to be going well. Her fiance, Chris, has even given his homestead away to a needy Mexican family. Lois' biggest stress seems to be whether she can convince her husband to get rid of his home decor and nick-knacks, which revolve completely around catfish.
Of course things don't stay calm around Lois for long--but even she couldn't have predicted the twister that invites itself to her wedding. With the town in shambles, her home destroyed, and a friend to mourn, Lois and Chris spend their honeymoon picking up the pieces and wondering if this catastrophe will be the end of their beloved Green.
