Review by: Jhonni Parker on Aug. 11, 2013 :
This is one of those novels that will stay with you long after you have finished reading, and you will end the book 1) feeling that you had just been to another place with new friends, and 2) wishing there was more. I hope the author continues this series and I was happy to have discovered her and her books! There is a charming simplicity to the story, and I liked that it was set in the small town and everyone had their little groups and clubs to show the roles of the people and their interactions on day to day life. At times I thought the story could benefit from more heightened tension in order to really propel the story forward, and there were a lot of characters to keep track of (that were often referred to by first and last name, which I though was a tad odd). This is definitely a different type of book in terms of writing style and narration, but the characters are likeable enough and quirky (always a bonus), and the charming setting is described in lyrical detail. Recommend for fans of women’s fiction and romance.

Review by: Steph Coleman on Aug. 08, 2013 :
This is my favorite type of book: give me some ‘real life’ people with real issues set in a small town. I enjoy reading many of Nora Roberts’ books for this reason, and while not delivered with quite the finesse, I thought “Peas, Beans & Corn” fit in quite nicely with my preferred reading. (But I must admit that the title was not all that compelling to me). But once I looked past that and got to reading, I thought it to be very well-written with a nice, easy flow. I found the characters to be believable and the dialogue natural. Although I had a hard time believing the male lead had heard of “Fifty Shades of Grey”, but had never heard of Emily Dickenson?! Overall a nice story that kept me invested emotionally from beginning to end. Will be looking for more from this author in the future!
