The scrapbooking reminds me of all the wonderful times my Mother and I have worked in a darkroom together developing photos. It was a good feeling to read that sort of thing in a book. I liked the small town of Stars Hill as a setting in the book. I guess I have lived near too many of those small towns, and I am in one now as a matter of fact. I appreciated that it was in Tennessee. Being an Alabama born and raised gal myself, we weren't too far from the TN. state line and enjoyed many trips there over the years.
All that aside, I loved Cooper. I was pleased to see a dog prominently featured in this book. I happen to raise and train dogs, and they have been part of my life for as long as I can remember. While I love all animals, having a dog, cat or another animal featured in a book makes it even more real to me than it would be with out it. I would like to read the next book in this series, and I loved the recipe at the back of the book. I am going to have to make that one and see how it turns out!
