Born Under a Lucky Moon

Today I'm hosting a TLC Book Tour for Dana Precious' Born Under a Lucky Moon.

Jeannie Thompson has a family full of nuts. They are engaging nuts, loyal nuts, loving nuts but they are nuts. And that being the case, Jeannie would much rather keep the nuts away from her boyfriend...who just proposed.
As luck would have it, most of the nuts live in Michigan and Jeannie lives in L.A. where she is a marketing executive with a semi-major film studio. It's enough that she has to deal with psycho film stars who want Belgian water flown in on their film set or to take Air Force One for a spin. Puh-leeze! Now her sweetheart of a boyfriend is asking to meet her nutty family. What to do? What to do?
I loved reading and learning about Michigan. The author very skillfully manages to weave wonderfully interesting trivia about life along the Great Lakes into her sweet novel. Now I'm wanting to spend Spring Break on Muskegon Lake and learn the fine art of fly fishing! And Dana's depictions of the Thompson's family life with all the sisters crowding into one bathroom, bedroom accomodations that play out like musical chairs and the escape artist shenanigans of Buddy the dog left me smiling as I reached for the phone to call my own sister.
I highly recommend Born Under a Lucky Moon. It is a feel good story about love and families and the ties that bind.

Well some of that is too close to home..we are the family of "nuts" and I so feel for my son as he continues to bring his girlfriend around us, who comes from the most perfect family in the world, total dolls...then she sees us..oh my what she must think!
Sounds like a fun book and I too am wanting to visit that area...if you go, please post your pictures.
