Jayne Reynolds emerges from widowhood to take a long lingering look at Mossy Creek s Bubba Rice.

A few years ago, BelleBooks partners Debra Dixon, Deborah Smith, Sandra Chastain, Virginia Ellis, Donna Ball and Martha Crockett veteran authors with more than 100 romance and women s fiction books to their credit at major publishers decided to create a collective novel about a whimsical Appalachian town. Each author picked several characters to shepherd through the stories, and voila! A collaborative book was born.

The series launched with MOSSY CREEK, followed by REUNION IN MOSSY CREEK, SUMMER IN MOSSY CREEK, BLESSINGS OF MESSY CREEK, A DAY IN MOSSY CREEK, AT HOME IN MOSSY CREEK, and now, in September 2009, CRITTERS OF MOSSY CREEK.

Each book features the regulars plus a sterling group of outside authors. Mossy Creek contributors include bestselling novelists Sabrina Jeffries, Anne Bishop, Sharon Sala, Patti Callahan Henry and many more.

It’s a very charming , cute (I never thought I would use this word for a book 🙂 )  book, if you love pets, even if you don’t have one (I don’t), but love animals, it’s a very good book to read.
