Excellent Christian Romance and Excellent Book.

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

Yes, this is a fabulous book. It is written skillfully in that you don't much like the Bible salesman at first. You see him very much through Missy's eyes as a self-righteous little twerp. The author changes your view of him right along with Missy's.

Who was your favorite character and why?

Missy and her father are tied for my favorite character. Although Curler Head is definitely in the running. Missy is a kind and devoted daughter living with her father after her mother's untimely death. She is hardworking, spunky and a fabulous at fixing cars. It is difficult not to like her. Her father, John, is a gruff, charismatic character. He is an excellent hands-on father who cares deeply for his children.

What does Stacey Glemboski bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

She gives an excellent performance and brings each of the characters to life. She is very good at both the male and female characters and switches between the two seamlessly.

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

The book is very well written with many moving scenes. My favorite would definitely be when Missy first meets "the Bible salesman." I also really enjoyed the fishing scene with Curler Head.

Any additional comments?

This is an excellent book. It is clean and family friendly. I received this book for free in exchange for an honest review.

Old Fashioned Honesty

What made the experience of listening to Fried Chicken and Gravy the most enjoyable?

This is a wholesome story of two people who fall in love the old fashioned way; slow and with wise supervision. It takes place in the seventies, which takes me back to my childhood. The descriptions of simple, country living rings true. You become invested in both characters, hoping they will find love based on a deep inner connection and not superficial attributes. I loved it.

What did you like best about this story?

I liked that both characters valued their parents opinions. They did not make decisions without wise counsel.

Which scene was your favorite?

All of the scenes with the main character in cooking class. The elderly women she was leaning from reminded me of women I grew up knowing. They were so funny.

Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

I felt very sorry for the main character and her father when they reminisced about her mother's passing away.
