Karin Boutallabout this book: Every community would love to have an abandoned lot replaced with raised gardens, right? At least that's what, Joan Louen, owner of a thriving greenhouse assumed. But when council members started sending mixed signals, she soon discovers some people are reluctant to support her. Some may even want to stop her. But why?
Originally, her plans that turned a shabby antebellum house and the surrounding acreage into a greenhouse, had been welcomed by all. When the business succeeded, they were captivated. But as soon as she mentioned beautifying the weed infested lot next to the public library, the warm welcome turned cold.
Community Gardens is a quick read that takes a witty and insightful look at friendships. With a bit of suspense and a whisper of romance, it is sure to leave you surprised. If you enjoyed a 'Red Bird Christmas' by Fannie Flagg you will enjoy Community Gardens. So pour some ice tea, slip into your favorite garden chair and enjoy.
