Renovating a broken-down mansion in Virginia's Shenandoah Valley gave three lifelong friends a welcome second chance. But after taking the biggest risk of their lives, are these women also willing to risk their hearts?
All the effort Cici, Lindsay, and Bridget have put into transforming an historic but overgrown farm into an upscale winery and special events business is paying off-Ladybug Farm has been chosen to host a society wedding. What this really means is that they are about to be invaded by warring mothers-in-law, a Bridezilla, and a completely clueless groom. They have their hands full keeping Ladybug Farm from descending into total chaos.
But there's something about a wedding...
Love Letters from Ladybug Farm by Donna Ball is the third book in her Ladybug Farm series. Three longtime friends decide to change their lives and buy a mansion/farm in Virginia. All their money goes into the repairs it needs and it's a constant challenge for them to stay afloat.
The strength of this book is in the relationships. The three friends, Cici, Lindsay, and Bridget are there for each other through every hardship. They laugh and cry together. They also are quick to include others into the little family they have built; the mansion's old housekeeper, a young boy who shows up on the estate, a crotchety handyman, and more.
Donna Ball's writing made me laugh and cry as I read about the travails of these three friends. I was also a bit jealous not to have such a friendship! The book is an enjoyable read.
I give this book 3 Bookworms.
