ALL FOR ONE
The third of Carlson’s Four Lindas series is quietly appealing. Some of the plotlines move briskly, but others drag and are not realistic. Yet women “of a certain age” will enjoy a book that is relevant to their daily struggles and situations.
The four women named Linda who reconnected at their high school reunion continue to share their lives. Abby is trying to get her bed and breakfast fixed up while worrying about her husband’s recent heart attack. Marley’s grown son is having some problems, and Janie is heartbroken when her boyfriend’s ex-wife re-enters his life. Caroline struggles with her mother’s Alzheimer’s. (DAVID C.
