About this Book
In this first book of the Tales from the Goose Creek B&B, youâ€™ll fall in love with a small town that feels like coming home. Its quirky characters and their many shenanigans will make you laugh out loud as they touch a place in your heart.
Even though retirement is still three years away, Al Richardson is counting the days. He anticipates many enjoyable years in which every day feels like Saturday. But Alâ€™s wife, Millie, has different plans for their retirement. When she learns that a Victorian-era home is up for sale, Millie launches a full-blown campaign to convince Al that Godâ€™s plan for them is to turn that house into a B&B.
But a B&B wonâ€™t be the only change for the small Kentucky town. A new veterinarian has hung up her shingle, but sheâ€™s only got one patientâ€”the smelly dog belonging to her part-time receptionist. And sides are being taken in the issue of the water tower, which needs a new coat of paintâ€¦but no one can agree who should paint it.
The situation is coming to a head. Who could have imagined a town protest over a water tower? And who would believe it could culminate in an illegal parade?
Get lost in a novel that reminds you why you love reading.
About the Author
I’ve featured Ginny Smith several times so this time I wanted to share a bit from her last Journal post from her websiteÂ www.virginiasmith.org/
For the first (mumble) years of my life I avoided running like the dedicated couch potato I was. Even if pried myself out of my office chair to exercise, running was the last thing I would ever do. Then a couple of years ago my daughter voiced an outrageous, ridiculous, totally impossible idea:Â â€œLetâ€™s get a group of girls together and run in the Disney Princess half-marathon!â€ Yeah, right. I informed her that (1) she must have inherited that insanity gene from her fatherâ€™s side of the family, and (2) if I ever lost my grip on reality enough to agree to such a thing, the effort would kill me. But the more I thought about it, the more appeal the idea gained. First, a trip with nothing but women sounded like a lot of fun. Second, the race is at Disney World, my all-time favorite place to be. Third, Iâ€™d get to spend time with my daughter. So I agreedâ€”but only to the 5k, not the half-marathon.
You know what? It was a blast! Not just the trip, or the fellowship, or even Disney, but I enjoyed the running more than I ever dreamed. We did the Princess 5k, and then I did a couple of 5kâ€™s to benefit breast cancer awareness.
And then my daughter had another crazy idea: â€œLetâ€™s do the Tinkerbell Half Marathon at Disney Land in California. Itâ€™s on Motherâ€™s Day.â€
