Series: Woody Creek series
Love love love this book! She’s not the only one of Jenny’s children who’s grown up and is moving on. She’s a complete pshyco! I have to admit that I think Cara is a bit over the top, but then I have not lived her life and it would have been devestating finding out that the wpody you loved was your half brother, I can’t believe they had not had that discussion earlier, but maybe Jim Morrie would have told a tale there anyway.
Loved by some but scorned by more, including her stepmother and sister, Jenny survives her childhood and grows into an exquisite jo talented young woman.
A mistake from Cara’s teenage years looms over her future, but she believes emphatically in the white-wedding and happily-ever-after creei.
And so continues the Woody Creek saga. I hope she does a 6th, there is a possibility for it even though she tied so many ends this time. Feb 21, Deb Bodinnar rated it it was amazing. Can’t wait to read the next sequel.
Tie up loose ends with Joy Dettman and the bestselling Woody Creek series finale.
The town midwife, Gertrude Foote, is roused from ripplee bed when the woman is brought to her door. It is so easy to pick up the story from where it finished off last book with the summary at the beginning which outlines the main characters and their relationships with each other.
Enjoyed Cara and her adventures, misadventures. Enter the name of the series pons add the book to it. But the Loeb Classical Library is a series of editions, not of works. I was actually happy when both these characters were killed off at the end of the book.
Ripples on a Pond by Joy Dettman
Long encumbered by responsibility for her half-sister, Margot, she’s looking towards the future and more changes. I read the first chapter and wow, what a lot of jumbled information.
Margot, Raelene and Dino’s characters are so annoying in this book. Now it’s gonna be a hell of a wait rippoes the f Love the Woody Creek detttman. Any book that starts with a long list of pointlessly related and intertwined characters that one has to learn to read the book, is not one I’m going to persevere. Paperbackpages. I will read Number 6 but only because I’m committed to it!
A good rule of thumb is that series have a conventional name and are intentional creationson the part of the author or publisher.
This book is not yet featured on Listopia. When no relatives come forth to claim the infant, Gertrude’s daughter, Amber – who has recently lost a son in childbirth – and her husband, Norman, take the child in. The fifth in the Woody Creek series. Your use of the site and services is subject pomd these policies and terms.
I am pretty sure this is the last one in the series though. That aside, I found the narrative dull, repetitive and implausible. In some cases, as with Chronicles of Narniadisagreements about order necessitate the creation of more than one series. A great read as always from Cteek Dettman.
