More Than Friendship

Happy Friday!  Today is Tell a Fairy Tale Day!  Do you enjoy fairy tales or have children that enjoy them?  Then you will enjoy this day.  It is a good day to settle in a comfy chair (or couch) with your child and read them a fairy tale (the main requirement for a fairy story is that it have a happy ending). Many libraries will have special events for children on this day (check with your local library).  Did you know that . . . The Grand Teton National Park in Wyoming was created on this day in 1929 by President Calvin Coolidge!  The Twenty-Second Amendment was added to the Constitution which limits how many terms a President can serve (two). The New York Philharmonic Orchestra performs Pyongyang, North Korea in 2008.  It is the first event of its kind to take place in North Korea.  

More Than Friendship by Amy Lillard is a nice, short story.  Clara Rose Yutzy has agreed to marry Thomas.  Her wedding is in six weeks.  But her best friend Obie (Obadiah Brenneman) asks her not to marry him.  Obie tells her that he has a bad feeling, but will not give her more details.  Obie is in love with Clara Rose, but Clara Rose needs to discover this for herself.  Will Clara Rose go ahead with her wedding and marry Thomas? 

More Than Friendship was enjoyable to read.  It is well-written and easy to read (though predictable).  I enjoyed the characters and the setting of Wells Landing, Oklahoma.    I give More Than Friendship 4 out of 5 stars. More Than Friendship can be read in just a couple of hours (it is a short story).  I look forward to reading the next book by Amy Lillard. 

The next book in the A Wells Landing Romance series is Just Plain Sadie and it will be released on March 29, 2016.  I received a complimentary copy of More Than Friendship from NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.

Thank you for visiting and checking out my latest review.  I am currently reading A Treasure Concealed by Tracie Peterson.  I hope all of you have a fabulous Friday!  I am off to install a new showerhead in my bathroom (it has LED lights and power boost). Wish me luck!  Take care and Happy Reading!
