REVIEW: For the Love of Pete by Debby Mayne

Bethany, a widow, finds herself back in her hometown and burdened, unknowingly, by all the treasures and trinkets she and her (deceased) mother-in-law accumulated over the years.  Her own mother, Naomi, works hard to bring Bethany out of seclusion by constantly setting Bethany up with an old, unmarried friend, Pete.  Naomi also encourages Bethany to clean out the clutter and I think Bethany single-handedly provides all the goods for a giant rummage sale.  This book is set in “Bloomfield” where, oddly, the garden club seems to run the town.  It is meant to be a charming place where everyone is in everyone else’s business.  Bethany and Pete are surrounded by colorful characters such as Pamela and the annoying bird.  It has a predictable ending, but the story was fine.  It was a fast read and this was one book in a series.
