THE REVIEW-First off I have to say, this is a really fun book! It kinda makes you laugh, feel good and just go back to the days of friends and neighbors getting together and doing things for the community. And yes, I might have wanted to slap a couple of people for their meddling and interfering but in the end you see their caring. I absolutely loved Pete! Ha! Catchy title and all:) But in reality he was my favorite character. Kind, solid and caring to the core. And we can't forget the girl he has held everyone up to as his standard. Okay, not a girl but his sweetheart. I loved reading about all the characters, some of whom you might remember if you have read the first book in the Bloomfield series. Excellent novel!
