The Widow of Larkspur Inn, by Lawana Blackwell {Book Review}

The Widow of Larkspur Inn was a lovely read.  I snagged this eBook while it was on the Amazon freebie list {a thrifty way to add to your book collection}.  While this was the first book by Lawana Blackwell I have read I am already looking forward to reading more of her novels.

There were several different story lines going on throughout the book, but they were unhurried and well developed.  One of the key components of the story that resonated with me, was the relationship between Mrs. Hollis and her son. While nowadays a son is more likely to lose his father’s influence due to divorce or competing interests than an untimely death, the dilemma a single mom (and single fathers) face are indeed similar. How she kept her peace about his father’s bad choices by tempering her comments was well done and something I can put into better practice in my life.

My one wish where this book was concerned was the ending. I wish we had a look into how Philip felt about the final announcement made by his mother.  I wonder…  psst… It is still available as a freebie! {as of 9/14/2012}

DISCLOSURE: I ‘purchased’ a copy of this book from Amazon while it was available for free. The opinions contained in this review are 100% my own opinionated opinions.
