I love this book so much. I haven't even finished it and I can't help but review it. I have laughed out loud repeatedly and can't put it down. Unless it would take an odd dark turn I can't imagine that I won't love it to the end. Ava Finch, aka Sara Stonich does it again. Chapter Chatters fell in love with "These Granite Islands" (No Nancy it's not about a kitchen) and we were excited to read this too. We try not to read an author twice as a group (So many books,so little time...) but when something comes highly recommended we just have to jump in. (And she created a nom de plume so no rules were broken in the reading of this book!) It's always fun to read something with local flavor, and who doesn't love to sit in a boat and contemplate life. I had so many clever line highlighted on my kindle I finally had to stop just because it was slowing me down. I love an author with a great, and sassy, command of the English language. Can't wait to discuss...On a pontoon of course. (And I'm throwing in a few pictures of my niece and her catches!)
Here are a few things from her website which I encourage you to peruse, sarahstonich.com
