Is There Really a Fountain of Youth in Paradise?
Welcome back to Bright 's Pond, where strange happenings are afoot at the Greenbrier Nursing Home. Strange even for Bright 's Pond. The residents suddenly act like kids again riding trikes, climbing trees, and of all things falling in love. Some of the townsfolk blame it on the crooked new gazebo, or its builder, a quirky little man who quotes Don Quixote, collects water from the fountain at the Paradise trailer park, and disappears on a regular basis.
While Chief of Police Mildred Blessing investigates the mystery, Griselda and her friends deal with a luau Thanksgiving, preparations for the Christmas pageant, and maybe even an upcoming wedding. Only, in Bright 's Pond, nothing ever really goes as planned . . .
"What's better than Bright's Pond? Bright's Pond at Christmas time. Magnin hasn't just created characters--she's created friends you'll love spending time with. You'll love every page of this quirky delight, and when that last chapter is read, you'll be ready for more of Griselda and the rest of the Bright's Pond residents." - Jenny B. Jones, Award-winning author of romantic comedies such as "Save the Date" and A Charmed Life series
"The queen of quirk does it again. With her signature wit and charm and penchant for surprise, Joyce Magnin takes us on a leisurely read through Bright's Pond, where uncannily loveable chaeracters reside -- God in the midst of them. I want to move there." - Nancy Rue, author of The Reluctant Prophet"Creative and fun, a visit to Bright 's Pond for the Holidays is just what the doctor ordered. Who can resist spry octogenarians in hot pursuit of the Fountain of Youth or romance in trouble But it is the endearing thread of love and sympathy that runs through the characters that makes readers return." - Cathy Gohlke, Christy Award winning author of William Henry is a Fine Name and I Have Seen Him in the Watchfires
