Our Book Club at Unity Christian Church had a very fun luncheon meeting last week at Joseph Beth Cafe with Virginia Smith. Left to right: Ellen Whitaker, Jean Fowler, Ellen Kipela, myself, and Ginny Smith.
Ginny and I have known each other for several years from ACFW. I love her books, and while we ate she regaled us with several funny stories–some true and some from her upcoming fiction. We all laughed so much, I am sure we worked off the calories in our desserts!
Ginny’s new series, Tales of the Goose Creek B&B, is set in a small Kentucky town and features a host of delightful (and sometimes wacky) residents. The series kicks off on August 1 with an introductory e-only novella called Dr. Horatio vs. the Six-Toed Cat.
Book 1, The Most Famous Illegal Goose Creek Parade, will release on September 1. Here’s a description:
In this first book of the Tales from the Goose Creek B&B, you’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 Al’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 God’s plan for them is to turn that house into a B&B.
But a B&B won’t be the only change for the small Kentucky town. A new veterinarian has hung up her shingle, but she’s only got one patient—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 paint…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?
Pre-order these books, and you can get lost in a novel that reminds you why you love reading.
