Jo Ann Casey offers her readers another sweet little slice of family drama in her latest novel, Finding Casey.
Five years after the events of Solomon’s Oak, we again meet Glory Vigil, her new husband Joseph and their adopted daughter Juniper. Glory’s settled and calm life is thrown up in her air when, in her forties, she discovers she is pregnant. Juniper has her own problems: trying to stay trim, excel at college and cope with falling in love for the very first time. When Juniper buys a clay pot at a local craft fair, she finds herself on a collision course with the mysterious Lauren and her ailing daughter, Aspen. Although touted as such, Finding Casey doesn’t quiet manage to function as a stand-a-lone piece. However, fans of Solomon’s Oak will relish this latest instalment of Vigil family drama, and delight in meeting familiar favourites again. All in all, this is an easy read that will make for perfectly cosy, chilled out winter reading.
