    Confusing and hard to read!

    Come Rain or Come Shine by Jan Karon is the book that readers have been looking forward to for a long time. Dooley Kavanaugh and Lace Harper are getting married. They have decided to get married at their new home, Meadowgate. Meadowgate is a farm in Farmer, North Carolina. They want it to be a simple wedding (no wedding is simple). The wedding date is set for June 14. Dooley and Lace decided to make it a potluck dinner reception (asking each guest to bring a dish). Until the wedding, they have plenty to keep them busy. Dooley has to finish veterinary school and graduate. They are busy fixing up the farm (the house, fences, and barn). They have purchased four cows and are awaiting the arrival of their new bull, Choo-Choo (I am not kidding). Dooley will be taking over a veterinary practice after graduation and they will be installing a new sign that reads “Kavanaugh Animal Wellness Clinic”. Lace is looking forward to her new life. She is busy looking for a wedding dress (she wants to get one for $100), making and selling her paintings (which will pay for some extras, and creating a wedding gift for Dooley. Father Tim and Cynthia have moved out to the farm to help out until the wedding. Lace and Dooley also have a special surprise for their parents. They have had something in the works for two years, and it is finally happening just before the wedding. Let us hope that everything goes off without a hitch. What could go wrong (rain, not enough food, surprise guests, escaping animals)? Read Come Rain or Come Shine to find out what happens. I was so excited when I got a copy of this book. I have read all the books in this series (and loved them). Unfortunately, this book was a disappointment. The main problem is the way it was written. It is written from the perspective of the different characters (not just one as in first person). It jumps around and it can be very confusing. One moment it is Lace, then Father Tim, and then who knows who. You have to guess sometimes (because the author only used pronouns and not names) and it changes abruptly (you had to guess based on what the person was saying). This made the novel hard to read. I do not know what possessed the author to write the novel in this format. I wish it had been written differently so Come Rain or Come Shine could have been more enjoyable to read. I give Come Rain or Come Shine 3.75 out of 5 stars. I received a complimentary copy of Come Rain or Come Shine from NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.

    Come Rain or Come Shine

    It's a 10+ Jan, is at her best, you won't be disappointed, so many questions were revealed plus getting caught up on so many characters as well and there's a warm-hearted, marvelous surprise as well, it was like being at the BEST Family reunion ever, I'll be listening to it again & again, for years to come. It was like a tiny sweet, scrumptious candy melting on my tongue, but for hours on end!!!

    Brings the series beautifully up to date

    Jan Karon’s Come Rain or Come Shine brings Mitford up to date, with texting young-adults, home-grown weddings, pot-luck reception, gorgeous dogs (of course), ageless romance, and lots of laugh-out-loud moments. The sweetness is never overwhelming and there are plenty of thought-provoking moments, as Lace and Dooley learn that even d-i-y weddings aren’t simple – wise preparation perhaps for marriage. Of course, marriage itself is never simple, and the familial assumptions of others can accidentally hurt. There are unexpected guests to be introduced, prejudices to be overcome, dresses and gifts to be chosen or made, cattle to be subdued, and the weather... Winds and rain might threaten, physically and metaphorically, throughout this tale, proving the best plans of mice and men go awry, and it doesn’t matter. Plus there’s a mystery, of course, well-timed and beautifully told, drawn to a perfect conclusion to add another classic tale in the Mitford fold; I really enjoyed this one. Disclosure: My Mum and I are both Mitford addicts, and we think the series is best read from the start.
