    Jane’s high school rival is planning a 10K race and Jane decides to run in it and wants to win. Louise put some giant pumpkins seeds in the garden and grows a huge pumpkin. She gets talked into entering the pumpkin into a largest pumpkin contest. Alice goes with her friend Vera to try and help Vera’s elderly aunt who broke her hip. While they want to win they remember winning isn’t everything.

    The Grace Chapel Inn series is a lot like the feel good story they run on the Friday evening national news. There may be a some hard ship but in the end everything works out just fine. The series has several different authors, some better than others. Jane Orcutt, may favorite passed away several years ago and I feared I may not find the series as enjoyable.

Jane Orcutt, may favorite passed away several years ago and I feared I may not find the series as enjoyable. Well, I need not have worried. Sunni Jeffers does a fine job handling her entries into the series. This time around we have youngest of the Howard sisters, Jane, preparing for a 10K run while trying to fight her desire to beat an old high school rival. Then the Louise, the eldest Howard sister has decided to try her hand at gardening and could just be growing a record breaking giant pumpkin. All of this while middle sister Alice is out of town helping her friend decide whether or not to put a beloved relative into a nursing home. While not the most complicated of stories there is enough story to keep you interested. Alice's story was by far the most intriguing to me. I thought it was nicely handled (even if it was easy) and ended happily (was there any doubt?). The story of the giant pumpkin was fun and I'll have to look up Louise's secret ingredient to see if it's real. The 10K run storyline was the least successful for me but I think that was just me and not the author's fault. All and all I enjoyed this entry into the series. There will be no grand book awards for any of these books. But their entertaining and lighthearted. The only thing I wish they had were recipes for all the wonderful food mentioned because they all do sound yummy.

    I like this whole series (Tales of Grace Chapel Inn). They are light and easy reading, but the sort of struggles real people face, with good characters. Having 3 older sisters running a B & B Inn in a small PA town, allows the authors to tell the stories of a lot of different people, and some of them changing over time. I amd sad to be coming to the (current)end of this series. I like this whole series (Tales of Grace Chapel Inn).

    These books are obviously not for everyone, but they are some I always, really enjoy. Easy, light Christian fiction, part of an ongoing series. I can't get enough of them :) I love returning to the town and characters several times a year!

    A fun entry into this wonderful series about three sisters who turn their old Victorian family home into a B&B after the death of their father. This one gave the reader an in-depth look into the past life of Vera, a town resident, and good friend of Alice, the middle sister. As she is called out of town to help her elderly aunt, she asks Alice to join her and Alice soon discovers a different side of Vera. Another unexpected story-line involved Louise, the eldest.

This one gave the reader an in-depth look into the past life of Vera, a town resident, and good friend of Alice, the middle sister. As she is called out of town to help her elderly aunt, she asks Alice to join her and Alice soon discovers a different side of Vera. Another unexpected story-line involved Louise, the eldest. She is a very proper lady and a classical pianist. When she secretly decides to see if she can grown a giant pumpkin, the results are amazing and humorous. Jane, the youngest, is the only sister with a competitive nature that she struggles with. In this book, she is put to the test when an old rival enters a charity race and Jane wants nothing more than to beat her. All in all, a fun story and lots of great life lessons as we follow the sister and their friends/family.

    I was looking for a light read but this one was too light for me. The three sisters who run a bed and breakfast all get involved in raising a giant pumpkin, running a race and caring for an aging aunt. All are amazed by the unexpected positive things that happen in life. I would have liked a bit more "body" to the plot but it was a very quick and fun read.

    Louise is growing a giant pumpkin, Jane is running a 10k for charity, and Alice is helping her friend with a family problem. Possibly my favorite in this series that I’ve read so far.

    I love these books. I am nearing the end of the series and so I am savoring each one. This book was a fall themed book and I got to read my own copy for once, not a library copy. I love the hometown feel of these books and the family camaraderie. I highly recommend this series.

    Like most of the books in this series, the plot contains several story lines. At first I was partial to hearing about Louise growing giant pumpkins because I like to garden and I liked that Louise was trying something new to prove to her sisters (and to her self) that she could grow something. I was fascinated that she fertilized with buttermilk and I just had to research this plan to see if there was any validity to this "folk remedy". I also really liked the second story line in which Alice as Like most of the books in this series, the plot contains several story lines.

I was fascinated that she fertilized with buttermilk and I just had to research this plan to see if there was any validity to this "folk remedy". I also really liked the second story line in which Alice assists her friend Vera in helping her Aunt Agatha accept changes that come with aging. I like that a creative solution was found. The third story line, in which Jane trains and competes in a charity race for diabetes, didn't have as much personal connection with me at first but I was touched how Jane and her "rival" both stopped to help a fallen racer. Because they finished the race by showing mercy and grace, they were all winners. Also Jane learns that sometimes the opinion that you have about someone is formed without having "all the facts". So . . . remember not to believe every thing that you think. This is a gentle read, filled with Biblical living and imperfect people trying to grow in their walks with the Lord. As always, I enjoy the teasing and warm relationship between the three Howard sisters.

    Cute book. Louise grows a huge pumpkin, Alice goes to help Vera with her grandmother and decisions about putting her in a nursing home, and Jane tries to run and beat her high school competitior in a local run. All of this makes for an enjoyable book. Too bad only one recipe and for something I would never make.
