Amber Weathersby owns the Gardens and Gifts Galore. Each year, she places a gnome in the garden that wins the Bloomfield Garden Club prize. Except this year, Gnormon (with a silent `g') the gnome has gone missing, along with the trophy. She soon finds a clue, a poem comprised of letters cut out of the local paper, and this leads her and her best friend, Stan Wilson, to the gnome. But no trophy. And then Gnormon disappears, and so starts the chase to find Gnormon's next location, and hopefully the trophy.

As he works with Amber, Stan discovers that Amber isn't just the girl he grew up with, his oldest, closest friend. He's in love with her. And she seems to be drawing away from him. He doesn't know that Amber is also struggling with financial issues. Her parents are dead, and her uncle is pressuring her to repay his business loan, on which he has doubled the interest payments (not exactly sure how he could do that with a written contract, but never mind).

I found Take the Trophy and Run difficult to get into, although I usually enjoy cozy mysteries and I have a real soft spot for friends-to-lovers plots (this is Christian fiction, so lovers in the Victorian sense, not the modern sense). The style of writing didn't really work for me, although there was nothing I could pinpoint as why. I think my main problem was that I was more interested in the relationship between Amber and Stan than in the mystery of the missing gnome or Amber's financial issues. And even this has been done better, particularly in the Smart Chick Mysteries by Mindy Starns Clark. Take the Trophy and Run wasn't bad, it just didn't grab me until about three-quarters of the way through, and that wasn't enough to make up for the weaker start.

Thanks to B&H Publishing and NetGalley for providing a free ebook for review.

3.0 out of 5 stars A Neighborhood "Who-Done-It" 17 Dec. 2014
By Amazon Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
Amber owns a garden shop & provides the garden gnome (named Gnorman) to hold the trophy for the Garden of the Year award. But before the gnome could be placed in the winning garden, he disappears. Every four days he shows up in various places, with a note or clue on where he may show up next. Amber is concerned about the whereabouts & who is responsible because she depends on the members of the garden club for her business..

Her long time friend Stan, helps Amber on this quest - of who is playing this game with Gnorman. When Gnorman finally shows up with the trophy, Stan & Amber are more than a little surprised -- there's a hidden agenda.

Easy reading but a lot of fun.
1.0 out of 5 stars Don't bother 19 Jun. 2014
By Amazon Customer - Published on Amazon.com

This book is boring, the premise is inane and the dialog juvenile. There were ridiculous errors that make me believe the author cared so little or was paying so little attention, she couldn't remember what she had written on the preceding page. For instance, a big point is made about the girl having walked to someone's house yet when she faints from not eating lunch and has to be taken home, there is a lengthy discussion about having to come back later for her car. This is not the only annoying contradiction, just the one that immediately came to mind. And the solution to the big "mystery" was obvious almost from the start. Do yourself a favor and skip this one.
5.0 out of 5 stars Take the Trophy and Run 21 Jun. 2013

I loved this book. It was funny, entertaining, with mystery added in. I would recommend this book to all my friends. I couldn't put it down and can't wait to find another book about Bloomfield. So many times we all look for something new or different, when God had the best for us already. I loved watching Stan and Amber realize God had already given them their life partner in their best friend. I will definitely read this book several times.
5.0 out of 5 stars Gnormans great adventure 27 Jun. 2014
By Patricia Clayton - Published on Amazon.com

What a fun book to read. The friends saw more to this couples relationship than they did. Loved the search for the trophy and the costumes worn by Gnorman. The notes sent Amber and Stan to the next location of Gnorman he disappeared and arrived in another persons garden. Fun and friendship seem to be the message in this book.
4.0 out of 5 stars Slow Starter but finishes well 26 Jun. 2014

It took a while to get into this Bloomfield book, but like the others in the series, it picked up and drew you in as it went along. I found myself guessing where Gnorman would show up next and hoping our main characters would guess what was behind his mysterious journey--I did!
