Series Sunday: On the Corner of Hope and Main

(Blessings #10) 

Series Sunday is a bookish meme hosted by Literary Marie. I encourage all of my fellow book bloggers and bookhearts to play along.
  • Read an installment of a series.
  • Share your review/recommendation below.
  • Include the title, author and series name.

My Series Sunday pick is On the Corner of Hope and Main, the 10th book in the Blessings series by Beverly Jenkins. Henry Adams, Kansas, may be small but usually there's not a dull moment in town. It is election time; Trent July has been mayor for the past four years and ready for someone else to take the reign. One of the residents, Barrett Payne, is very vocal that he wants the job. But a surprise candidate makes it quite the mayoral race.

I expected more from the tenth installment of this series. Maybe more excitement, fanfare through the town, a big 'ole celebration or something. Instead it was a bit uneventful. Even with a competitive race for mayor and the unwelcome presence of Bernadine's ex-husband, it was a bit boring. It did not help that several grammatical errors threw my reading off. I am still a fan of the Blessings series but On the Corner of Hope and Main missed the mark.

Happy Early Pub Day, Ms. Bev Jenkins! On the Corner of Hope and Main will be available Tuesday, March 3.
