    Connie’s Winter Snow Update

    First of all, I want to make one thing clear. I don’t like people. Most of them, anyway. It’s not that I’m better than any of them, I just get tired of putting up with their foolishness. The good Lord said to love thy neighbor. I’m fine with that. But there’s not a single word […]

But without a doubt, my cousin Imogene’s Red Velvet Cake recipe is the best. It’s like a party in your mouth. But Imogene is not the most likeable soul. She’s a […]

“Heart-warming, refreshing, and often amusing, this touching novel about a likable yet conflicted new doctor sent to a rural Tennessee town is a rare gem.  A bustling medical practice, a budding romance, and a passel of small town dramas make this a rich read, but a decades old murder mystery adds the icing on the cake. The […]
