George and Mabel and a host of new characters (or real life folks depending on how well you know the real George and Mabel) are back with a host of new adventures and fun filled tales. This is sweet southern liter

ature at its finest, reading these stories simply make you feel good all the way around or make you think about things just a little more.

Hutcheson derives her tales from real life events that she makes into heart warming or heart wrenching stories take your emotional pick. As an avid reader, I like to be entertained and escape into the book when I read. These stories center around “Charlie Brown,” family meals, one tube of Chapstick gone awry, almost running out of gas in the NC mountains and so many other wonderful spontaneous moments. Reading Hutcheson’s writing is like cuddling up on the couch with a blanket watching a favorite movie or sitting in your reading ch

air or nook enjoying a book, newspaper or e-book.

In this follow up to the first book, you will get to experience more of the love and companionship shared by the two main characters and how they live their lives with a sense of upbeat curiosity. These tales even at the most poignant moments will brighten your day. You’ll have a good time reading this, I sure did!
