TAKE THE TROPHY AND RUN
Sattler writes an engaging tale set in Bloomfield, a typical small town in America. Amber and Stan are very likable, and their escapades in tracking Gnorman are humorous. This is the perfect read to kick back and enjoy after a busy day.
Craft store owner Amber Weathersby wishes she had a green thumb like her fellow Bloomfield Garden Club members. Her claim to fame is setting up the Spring Fling trophy display in the winner’s garden using her gnome, Gnorman. Minutes after finishing this year’s display, Gnorman and the trophy are kidnapped. As Amber and her best friend, Stan Wilson, track Gnorman though the town in pursuit of the trophy, will they find the greatest trophy of all — love? (B&H, Nov., 320 pp., $14.99)
