About the Author
A sassy southern lady, Poppy Dennison developed an obsession with things that go bump in the night in her early years after a barn door flew off its hinges and nearly squashed her. Convinced it was a ghost trying to get her attention, she started looking for other strange and mysterious happenings around her. Not satisfied with what she found, Poppy has traveled to Greece, Malaysia and England to find inspiration for the burly bears and silver foxes that melt her butter. Her love of paranormal continues to flourish nearly thirty years later, and she writes steamy love stories about the very things that used to keep her up all night. If her childhood ghost is lucky, maybe one day she’ll give him his own happily ever after.

This book was great fun. Dogwood Days tells the tale of life in a small town, a place where you know everyone and everyone knows you. You sneeze in your sleep and the next day, half the town enquires about your cold. I've never lived in a small town, but if I was going to, Holly Creek is where I would want to be. It is a hive of quirky characters, personalities that, if they weren't such good people, would likely drive you insane. The rapid fire banter between some of the towns residents is funny - Jefferson and Clover in particular had me laughing out loud at times. The humorous scenes verge on farcical on occasion, but they fit with the characters, the place and the story.
The relationship between Jefferson and Zane is slow growing, creeping up on the two of them, sweet and a little awkward to begin with. They are a lovely complementary couple, calm, sensible Zane and the lively, more social Jefferson. It's a cute romance, a wonderful story of small town life, with a real appealing cast of extras.
Sweet, funny and a little daft in places - I loved it.
