First of all, I'd like to point out this is a second book in this series. The first one is called Vacationland which I plan on reading soon before the 3rd book comes out. With that being said, let's move on.
This book isn't any of the action, thriller, suspense, horror, or romance genre. I have no idea what to call this genre.
It is a novel of an ordinary small town located in Northern Minnesota of ordinary people. Laurentide Divide has a rich setting full of colors, quirkiness, and humor. The characters in this fictionalized little town were delightful to read.Very relatable. I laughed, I cried, I frowned and I smiled with them.
What makes this book unique and enjoyable? The lives of the people which at the moment are being held together by politics, cultures, tragedies, hope and love. There are several plots in this book richly interwoven together. I actually felt immersed in this community even though it's not real.
I intend to read the first book, Vacationland before the 3rd book comes out. I cannot wait for it to come out.
I'd give it a 4 stars.
I thoroughly enjoyed this book.
Do yourself a favor and get this book. It's worth the heart warming, feel good, and a whole lot of thinking of everything!
