Whether true or not, since 1968, armed property owners and caretakers were suspicious of trespassers and didn't hesitate to protect their families and pricey retreats.

    Review by: Gemini Press Books on May 18, 2013 : (Remove) It’s great to read a story that feels like we just walked into grandma's for Thanksgiving dinner. Not just any old place, but up in Northern Michigan––where the author’s characters talk like us when they let their hair down. Btw, we here at Gemini Press, are only part way through––we intend to take it slow––savor it until the end. It’s so delicious! (Now if we can get the author to meet Gigi Galt's cast of characters from "Love Boxes" we’ll all have a get together for a down-home party! Kalkaska? Cadillac? Norwood? Traverse City? Charlevoix, East Jordan, Petoskey? They’d all be good!) Thanks to the author for this delightful story. (reviewed the day of purchase)

Btw, we here at Gemini Press, are only part way through––we're going to take it slow––savor it until the end. Now if we can somehow get the author’s characters to meet Gigi Galt's cast of characters from "Love Boxes” we could have a big get together for a down-home party! Kalkaska? Cadillac? Norwood?

    Okay. I just now found this book. By accident. How lucky can you get? I immediately went to the "Michigan Story" and was delighted to see it took place near Harbor Springs. I intended to read only a few paragraphs and return to it when I was awake. Well, let me tell you, the story did that! I couldn’t stop reading. Great writing. I highly recommend it. Thanks to the author(s). Hope we meet someday at a book signing!
