But things never stay quiet for long in Goose Creek. The inner-county softball game is coming up, and Millie volunteers Al as team manager. But the softball team is a disaster. If they're not going to embarrass themselves in front of the whole of Franklin County, Al needs Justin to play. But Justin lives just outside the city limits, and the rules say that players must live in town.
As if that weren't enough to keep the town gossips busy, a massage therapist has come to town and opened up shop. Imagine - a massage parlor! - in Goose Creek! No decent Creeker will stand for it.
It's up to Al and Millie - again - to save the day.

Squirrel Antics, Mold in the Walls, Softball War
The second in the Goose Creek B & B series finds Millie and Al renovating their house, with Al bemoaning every expenditure as more and more things seem to crop up . . . the latest being mold in the walls. Handyman Justin assures him though, that Mold Man can rectify the situation, and that they will soon be back to the project at hand. Meanwhile menacing squirrels begin to attack Al's bird feeders in the back yard, making him miss the serenity of their old home even more, and rue the day that they sold it to the Thackers. Susan, the local veterinarian, and Justin are seeing more and more of one another, much to the dismay of Susan's father (and business partner). So much so that he is determined to move from Paducah to Goose Creek, so the two of them can live together. It seems that her father will never accept Justin. Amidst all the town goings on, the water tower is being repainted, commissioned to a real artist this time, and Al is managing the volunteer softball team, who is playing against the rival team from a county over. The mayor seems to have a lot riding on the game. It seems that the team is losing one player after the other, and the game is drawing closer and closer, when Al comes up with an idea. I nearly fell out laughing when Thomas (Susan's father) wrenched his back and ended up getting a massage from the new massage therapist in town (Tuesday Love). A fortuitous meeting that turned out to be . . . Goose Creek is the best, funniest, most straight-laced small town I've ever had the luck to read about or listen to . . . not so much different than the tiny Kentucky town I grew up in . . . everyone into everyone else's business, but for the most part, not a mean bone in their bodies . . . I wish this series would go on FOREVER!

Back to Goose Creek!!
Any additional comments?
Once again, another enjoyable story from the small town of Goose Creek, Kentucky. I so enjoyed this story that continued on from where the last one left off. I like reading about long marriages where people still not only like each other, but they also still love each other. Doesn't mean there isn't any conflict, but there isn't any nasty name calling or anything truly hurtful. The characters in this story still behaved decently to each other. These stories are somewhat addictive. I listened to the first two in two days. I'm ready for the third...and it hasn't been recorded yet!! I was voluntarily provided this free review copy audiobook by the author.
