THE WELCOME COMMITTEE OF BUTTERNUT CREEK
In the first book of a new series, Perrine visits a small town in Texas filled with quirky residents. Fun characters and a storyline that will hit close to home for a number of readers make this novel appealing to a wide variety of people.
Adam Jordan is a brand-new minister at a church in Butternut Creek, Texas. He doesn’t realize that a group of women called the Widows, headed by church matriarch Miss Birdie, will have quite a few things to say about his unmarried state and the choices he makes at church. They take it upon themselves to attempt matchmaking, but Adam has ideas of his own about the spiritual life of the residents of the town and about what he wants in a wife.
