Jim and Louella's Book Review

Phyllis Rhodes

Jim and Louella's Homemade Heart-Fix Remedy: A Novel is a delightful, anecdotic little book that is a welcomed break from the drama-filled fiction of late. The central characters, Jim and Louella, are a middle-aged, devoted Christian couple that discover a gift of hearing while rekindling their love life (which is rather steamy for an older couple). Jim and Louella, believing that all gifts from God should be shared, begin offering advice to their friends and neighbors on matters of the heart. Rumors of the "love couple" travel fast and their home is quickly overrun by the lovesick townsfolk in search of counsel. Much to their surprise they find some very lonely, neglected, and abused souls in their midst and quickly learn that despite their best intentions the outcome is not always what is expected. Told largely in Louella's point of view, the reader will enjoy her sense of humor, her witty retorts, and her self-proclaimed country ways.  Her fans will not be disappointed because she is still on target with her keen storytelling ability and lyrical writing style.  This little book is a keeper!
