A series of fires threaten Lois. And while her friends blossom, Lois feels wilted.

Another Year In Green, Louisiana
This second book in the Gone To Green series picks up exactly where book one ended without missing a beat or changing the tone of the storytelling. Often, the first book in a series will be good but then the follow-up books lose steam. Thankfully that isn't the case here. Further, I think Ochs continues to do a good job with the narration, always a plus.
In this book the author expands on the concepts of local corruption and trouble in the community, but at the same time maintains a positive message. There is a strong sense that anything is possible. I might like a little more detail and occasionally a bit more character development, but overall I like this series so far. For me this is a low stress, upbeat and comfortable entry in the Religious/Inspirational genre.
Southern Charm, Old Scoundrels and God's Grace
The second in The Green (Louisiana) series is just as good as the first, and it finds the owner of the local newspaper, Lois Barker, up against the previous owners, who are trying to get the paper back by hook or crook. With the staff of the The Green News-Item behind her as well as the town, Lois begins the fight to keep the paper, despite the fact that someone set it afire, trying to destroy the printing press. Next came a fire at Lois' home. The folks of Green, Louisiana are as varied as they come, but more and more they are uniting. Catfish farmer, Chris, Dr. Kevin, the local doctor (who is a single black woman) and adopting a young boy who lost his parents, the migrant Mexican farm workers, the woman pastor, at first shunned by the little town and the old brigade of prejudiced and close-minded residents with little compassion and love for their new neighbors. Circumstances, new people, patience and God's grace begin to work small miracles. This series is so enjoyable and never a sermon poked down your throat. The books are clean, fresh and just what I need. Bravo!!! I am already listening to Book Three!
