I know there are a bunch of these, and so they must be pretty popular. I listened to this first one, and while it was enjoyable, I can't imagine how there are 19 more stories (so far) in this little town! I liked Melinda and Jack and thought they made great friends and even greater lovers. I was glad to see Melinda learn to love again as well as appreciate the simplicity of small town life, and I was glad that Jack was able to find someone so perfect for him. It just wasn't a compelling enough story for me to be jonesing for the next one. I might eventually come back to this series -- especially if there's an Audible sale -- and I did enjoy this, I just didn't love it.
