A Year on Ladybug Farm

A Year on Ladybug Farm - Donna Ball Not bad. I liked the idea behind the book--three women who find themselves middle-aged, single, and with means and few obligations buy a run-down farm together and spend a year fixing it up. And the plotline was written pretty well. Predictable, but a decent arc. I do have some hangups with the way the author characterized her women, though, and the way she seemed to need to end each chapter with a trite quip. It's OK to let your reader just "get" some things without being told. (I call that "Jay Leno" syndrome. Beating the point/joke to death. Hee.)Anyway, I still enjoyed the book well enough, and would probably give this author another chance.
