3 STARS: I Liked It

Jamie Edwards has loved everything about growing up on a pumpkin patch, but ever since her cousin Milan Woods arrived, things have really stunk. Jamie can’t imagine it was easy for Milan to leave her life back in Los Angeles and move to Average, Illinois, population one thousand. But it’s kind of hard to feel sorry for her since (a) Milan’s drop-dead gorgeous; (b) she’s the daughter of two of Hollywood’s hottest film stars; (c) she’s captured the attention of everyone in town, including Danny, Jamie’s crush since forever; and (d) she’s about to steal the title of Pumpkin Princess right out from underneath Jamie!

My Thoughts:
This was a really cute book. I enjoyed the small town feel even though I don’t live in that small of town, but I do live in Texas and can appreciate the beauty of small town living.

Jamie is a likable character. She seems so sweet and down to earth. Her cousin Milan is sent to live with her and she isn’t exactly down to earth. It’s interesting to see how Jamie reacts to Milan’s city girl ways. I love that Jamie lives on a Pumpkin Patch. The scenery sounds beautiful. It made me want to get out in the fresh air and launch a pumpkin at a target. No really, that would be awesome!

Kristina Springer wrote a fun, light, entertaining read. If you’re in the mood for a funny country contemporary fiction go get this book. 🙂

Happy Reading!
