I recently finished my second Louise Shaffer book and enjoyed it just as much as the first.
I probably finished each within 3-4 days. Ladies of Garrison Gardens was difficult to find, but I requested it at my local library (another one of my new resolutions to save money by checking out books instead of buying them). They are both fast reads and entertaining. I like to read books that pull me into a world other than my own and keep me wondering what will happen next. I also have to be able to relate in some way with the characters. I was quickly intrigued by Louise's ladies!
