4 Stars Out Of 5
Summer of Joy
March 25, 2014
I read The Scent of Lilacs and really enjoyed it. It was great to go back to Hollyhill and see what Joice was up to. Joice's English teacher, Mr. Hammond has singled her out and not in a good way. He also has his on Leigh, which is her father, David's girlfriend/fiancee.
Someone is stalking the residents, people from the past show up and add more mystery to the story, and Wes who believes he is from Jupiter is absolutely hilarious.
While this is the third book in the series, it could be read as a stand alone, however I think you would enjoy it a lot better if you read the other books in the series.
Ann has a great way of adding a spiritual element without being overbearing and you will definitely see and feel what God has for these characters, and yourself.
