Word Lily review

Boo Hiss by Rene Gutteridge, book 3 of the Boo series (WaterBrook, 2005), 352 pages

Summary
Strange things are once again happening in the sleepy town of Skary, Indiana. This time the unexplainable include a new soccer field and a coffee shop with internet access. That’s not all, of course. (Some of the town’s newlyweds are now pregnant, among other things.)

Thoughts
Skary is populated by a passel of quirky characters. The word play — and the outright silliness — makes me laugh.

The plot is full of twists and turns, and the characters’ struggles are believable.
The descriptions of the Christian publishing industry (from an outsider’s perspective) are pretty … interesting, as well.

It’s clear the interior design for this series was given the attention it deserves. More than most books, it’s suitably whimsical (but not distracting).

I’m sad that I’ve burned through nearly all of her comedy titles; I think there’s only one left that I haven’t read now (My Life as a Doormat (in Three Acts)).

★★★☆☆
