Book Review - Secent of Lilacs by Ann H. Gabhart

Publisher's blurb: After the summer of 1964, life for Jocie Brooke will never be the same.

Life-changing events rarely happen in quiet Hollyhill, Kentucky, and when they do, they are few and far between. But for young Jocie Brooke and her family, they happen all at once during the humid summer of 1964. Though on the surface things are just fine, it seems like everyone in Jocie’s life has something they’re not saying, something they’re hiding from her-and from themselves. As Jocie digs into her family’s past, she stirs up a whirlwind of discoveries. Will she find the answers everyone so desperately needs? Or will her questions lead to truths better left hidden?

Combining unforgettable characters, true-to-life struggles, and the perfect dose of humor and nostalgia, this riveting story from bestselling author Ann Gabhart explores the very essence of new life and love.

My review: I love this book & this author. The story flows so easily and holds your interest. I like that it is the 1st in a 3 book series - I am looking forward to reading the other two books. The characters are all likable and realistic, you just want to keep reading to find to what happens next. I'd definitely recommend this book & series to others.
