It has been sold and dreary these past few days that I have been wanting to do is curl up on the couch and read a book. Today is the kind of day where only a comfort book will do.
Love Among the Walnuts by Jean Ferris is truly a comfort book. I loved this book from the moment I read the first line. The characters are wonderful and refreshing. This quirky little story of a son trying to save his parents from his nefarious relatives is heartwarming and funny at the same time. I love how this book reminds me of the old screwball comedies of the thirties. I truly recommend this book to anyone who loves to read offbeat stories with a bit of mystery thrown in. A warm book on a cold winter's day....what better way to spend an afternoon.
