I loved the author's first book and really looked forward to the second but unfortunately was terribly disappointed. She seemed like such a victim in this book, allowing all the neighbors to enroach on her personal territory but complaining about it to us, the readers, and not taking care of it directly. It really got on my nerves every time another person used her phone, her yard, etc. I didn't get the feeling that she felt any sort of affinity for the place she and her husband chose to live in. It is heartening to read her daughter's review and to see that they have fixed the place up so that it is now a comfortable and beautiful place. But I hope that in book three, the heavy almost depressed narrative is gone....
