IN MY OPINION
I love that I never quite know what to expect when I pick up a Heather Norman Smith book. I mean, I know there will be a good story that will entertain me, but will it be set in the past or present?
Shenanigans is Smith’s third book and different, yet similar, to her first two. I loved that the main characters are up there in years. Lavinia is spunky and outgoing despite her age. Her sense of humor keeps her young enough to entertain her grandsons and many of her neighbors alike.
But not everyone appreciates her pranks and when she’s accused of trying to harm someone, Neville McGrath steps in. The lawyer is the opposite of Lavinia in so many ways, yet they form a friendship.
The romance in this book is subtle and sweet. And while Lavinia is close with her grandsons and her son-in-law, there are some fractures in her relationship with her daughter and canyons in her relationship with God.
This story is filled with humor, a bit of suspense, and reminders to live life to the fullest and trust our futures to God.
