Review: The Most Famous Illegal Goose Creek Parade

The Most Famous Illegal Goose Creek Parade
Written By Virginia Smith
Published   September 1st 2015 by Harvest House Publishers
Genre        Christian, Romance


In this first book of the Tales from the Goose Creek B&B, you’ll fall in love with a small town that feels like coming home. Its quirky characters and their many shenanigans will make you laugh out loud as they touch a place in your heart.

Even though retirement is still three years away, Al Richardson is counting the days. He anticipates many enjoyable years in which every day feels like Saturday. But Al’s wife, Millie, has different plans for their retirement. When she learns that a Victorian-era home is up for sale, Millie launches a full-blown campaign to convince Al that God’s plan for them is to turn that house into a B&B.

But a B&B won’t be the only change for the small Kentucky town. A new veterinarian has hung up her shingle, but she’s only got one patient—the smelly dog belonging to her part-time receptionist. And sides are being taken in the issue of the water tower, which needs a new coat of paint…but no one can agree who should paint it.

The situation is coming to a head. Who could have imagined a town protest over a water tower? And who would believe it could culminate in an illegal parade?

Get lost in a novel that reminds you why you love reading.

My Thoughts

I enjoyed reading it, warm and funny story. It has a cute cover and description sounded like my kind of read. So, I started reading it as soon as I got a copy from the NetGalley.

Al Richardson is counting down the days to his retirement, to travel the world in an RV. But, Mille wishes to buy an old Victorian house, to start a Bed & Breakfast. Al constantly comes up with cunning ideas to stop Millie from doing so. They will make you laugh out loud. Though, they are an old-aged couple, I never felt so, unless the word retirement was mentioned. They are good-natured, good-humored, cheerful, and young at heart. Their silly arguments followed by cutesy make ups gave me giggles. I loved Millie. She knows what she wants and try her best to achieve it. She is amiable, helpful, optimistic, hard-working, and caring too. 

Goose Creek has got other troubles too. Creekers do not like the outsiders, even for a small job. Thus, Susan, the new veterinarian doctor is having a hard time, making acquaintance for her growing business. It also creates troubles to the Mayor and his Council members, when they invite bids to paint the water tower. The story is filled with interesting characters and lively incidents. It becomes more exciting with a sweet budding romance between Susan and Justin, Millie's pet dog Rufus's unusual behaviour, Millie's best friend, Violet's cliches, Al's colleague, Franklin Thaker and some unexpected events taking place in Goose Creek. 

Reading the tales of Goose Creek was fun. I liked the storyline. The author's writing style is easy to get into, it is well-paced and flows really well. I could picture it easily with the nicely written descriptions. Overall, it is a delightful, quick, and well-written story. I am waiting for the next book in the series to read more tales from the Goose Creek. Recommended if you are looking for a pleasing novel.

Happy Reading!
