THE HIDEAWAY by Lauren K Denton
Sara, a successful shop owner living in New Orleans and loving it, inherits a rundown Alabama Bed and Breakfast inhabited by a collection of odd seniors. When her grandmother’s will requires that she live in the B and B while it is renovated, a number of problems crop up. Will she find love or disappointment –again? Will the house be the beauty she envisions? Will the unscrupulous developer derail her plans? What was her grandmother really like?
All these questions and more are answered in this charming novel filled with well-developed and quirky characters. The plot meanders through several plots and subplots. While not a great novel, it is a satisfying read for a summer afternoon. Sip some sweet tea and enjoy being warmed by this sweet story. Surprisingly, although printed by a Christian publisher, God barely makes an appearance.
