Welcome to Carson Springs - Eileen Goudge
Released May 2012
Book Review by Tracy Farnsworth
Welcome to Carson Springs introduces the town of Carson Springs, California. The book shares the story of how Sam's parents (Sam is from Stranger in Paradise) met. It's the 1950's and Cora Delarosa is questioning if her husband really loves her or not. When a movie is filmed in town, the temptation of Hollywood may threaten to steal Cora away.
This is a really short story, it's just over 30 pages. Given that, it's a complete novella that draws you into the town and the characters within it. I immediately felt at home and wish I lived there. Eileen Goudge's story is followed by snippets from Stranger in Paradise and Taste of Honey, books one and two in the Carson Springs Trilogy.
The goodies don't stop there. The author also includes some of her decadent recipes. Enjoy recipes for Heavenly Triple-Decker Delight Brownies and Pina Colada Cake. My goal this rainy weekend is to make a couple pans of the brownies. I have to make two because I know my teens will devour them!
