    Great Read Showing Evolution of a Family

    Great easy read. The characters go through some tough times, but come out stronger in the end. I cried and laughed with them. LOVE, LOVE, LOVE the ending.

    Heartwarming, quirky, and unexpected

    April J. Moore's book "Bobbing For Watermelons" isn't your typical women's fiction: it's not predictable or formulaic; the characters have honest strengths and flaws (both of which are often hilarious), and there's no ridiculously easy answers to the major complications in the story. Instead we see a typical middle America woman struggling through the angst and stresses of middle age and, ultimately, coming to a place of life, love and creativity once more. While that sounds serious, this great character and plot development is couched in Helen's hilarious, sometimes dark misadventures. Heartwarming, quirky, and unexpected. I would definitely recommend this to a friend!

    Fruit of the summer book!

    April Moore has struck a chord of domesticated genius in this story of Helen who learns through a mix of choice and happenstance that there is more to life than what she has elected to endure. Wearing the roles of an under-appreciated mother and wife, Helen's spirited character breaks out to meet the world and risks everything to find and become her truest self. Endearingly funny and poignantly tragic Helen's walk through life is in every way a story that is authentically human.

    Funny and poignant...

    Funny and poignant, Bobbing for Watermelons combines memorable characters, snappy dialogue, and genuine humor. I was rooting for Helen all the way, and often laughing out loud as I did so. April Moore proves that coming of age stories aren't just for teenagers. It's never too late to find yourself, and true happiness, even when it seems as impossible as bobbing for watermelons.

    Fun Read with Great Characters

    Along the lines of Fannie Flagg, Moore has written a book filled with a quirky cast of characters and a lot of laugh out loud scenes. The dance-off at the prom to a Pat Benatar song, the disposing of ashes and Helen, the main character, ending up in jail, were all hillarious. I highly recommend this book!
