I met the author of the Mossy Creek series at a conference a few years ago. She and her cowriters were very friendly and down-to-earth. Both Amazon.com and LibraryThing rate the book as 4.5 stars out of 5. Amazon describes the book as “A delightful new collection of original Southern stories set in the charming, fictitious down-home town of Mossy Creek, where there’s a friendly face on every corner and a heartfelt story behind every door… “. I bought the first three in the series for my mother-in-law’s birthday. Not only did she thoroughly enjoy them, she passed them to my sister-in-law who liked them so much that she bought a couple more in the series. So if you are looking for a good set of books to give for Mother’s Day, these books are an excellent choice.
