My first Mayberry with not a hair shirt in sight, and no widows or widowers either. Phew. So that was good. This was a low-key easy readin' kind of story, and I thought that Mackenzie's recovery and issues were nicely handled, ie, there was no unnecessary added drama. Once she decided to go for it, she very rationally came to terms with her new normal, which I liked a lot. I just wasn't particularly interested in either of them all that much. So that's the three stars. Also, who doesn't spay or neuter their dogs??
