Recipe for Thanksgiving Dinner:
Start with sixty-two year old politically incorrect, chain-smoking, hard-cussing curmudgeon.
Add fifty-nine year old sexually-repressed know-it-all in pearls.
Throw in a beer can-turkey, a battle for horticultural supremacy, and nudist next-door neighbor.
Serve on paper plates, garnished with garden gnome.
Tastes like happily ever after.
Penny Watson presents an over-fifty romantic comedy novella. Story includes copious profanity and botanical references.
Apples Should Be Red is a perfectly written story. Penny Watson is my new favorite author!
To say that Tom Jenkins and Beverly Anderson don’t like each other is a strong understatement.
But when they are forced to stay together for a couple of days, things soon turn upside down.
I loved to follow the unfolding of their personalities, and as they begin to see something special in each other.
They add many new colors to each other’s palette (and not only in point of apples): fun, laughter, feeling heroic, friendly and free, naughty and happy.
This story was lovely, laugh-out-loud funny, heartwarming, colorful, and genuine!
Should apples really be red?
