Loraine3 Stars Out Of 5Quick light readJuly 15, 2020LoraineThis was a quick light romance read. I liked the idea of the vintage camper playing a role in the story. Dillon was somewhat adrift after she arrived at her grandfather's farm and it was fun to watch her fall in love with her little home on wheels. Full review is at my website.
kathaeFront Royal, VAAge: 45-54Gender: female4 Stars Out Of 5A Fun, Happy ReadMay 8, 2020kathaeFront Royal, VAAge: 45-54Gender: femaleQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5The Happy Camper is a fun, uplifting read. Dillon Michaels decides to move back to her Grandfather's farm after losing her job and her boyfriend on the same weekend. What I really liked about Dillon was that she left on her adventure with a great attitude about the future. No "Woe is me," with Dillon. She appreciated beauty and the relationships in her home town. She was willing to work hard for herself and to help others. It was easy to root for her.
Jordan Atwood was a great guy. Always willing to lend a hand, this local businessman and community leader was always a gentleman.
Although Dillon used the word "cute" a lot, there was just enough conflict to keep the story line interesting. Romance readers who want an uplifting, happy story will be delighted with The Happy Camper.
I received a copy of this book from the author for review purposes. The thoughts expressed here are my own.
MardellSpokane WAAge: 55-65Gender: female4 Stars Out Of 5Entertaining, Delightful StoryApril 25, 2020MardellSpokane WAAge: 55-65Gender: femaleQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5Melody Carlson's The Happy Camper follows Dillon Michaels on a journey of self discovery. Always responsible, she worked hard in her career and was loyal to a relationship she thought would lead to a loving marriage. As the pieces of her plans fall one by one like a juggler's balls, it dawns on her that her that she needs a big change. Her last straw moment became the catalyst she needed to let Mr. not-so-right-after all and that empty job behind to help her lonely grandfather on his farm.
I enjoyed this book, first because it was written by Melody Carlson. She has the gift of developing characters who may need a nudge to see just how good life can be if they are if pointed in the right direction. Dillon Michaels is a good example of a young woman who gives all to her job and boyfriend, but forgets to live the life she was designed to live. Starting over is scary but sometimes, looking back one can't help but wonder why they didn't do it sooner.
Secondly, this book is entertaining. Restoring the vintage Oasis trailer is a metaphor of Dillon's life. She was tired and feeling a bit neglected. Underneath all of the dust and old paint was a beauty ready to show how much life was underneath. Dillon found a gift she didn't expect to find in the middle of this restoration. She had to leave her Colorado life behind to see that her life was right where she left it behind on her family's farm.
I will admit that I did not look at Craigslist for a camper, I am a lake girl at heart. I did, however, scour the net on the subject and the first picture I found showed the exact colors of Dillon's little Oasis, complete with burnt orange appliances. From now on, when I see the vintage trailers on the road, taking the glampers to congregate, I will have a new appreciation for their journey. I recommend this book without hesitation to anyone who enjoys entertaining, Christian fiction. Thank you to NetGalley.com for this book in exchange for an honest review.
