Artist Larkspur Wendell is as fun loving as her name and she can’t bear to see anyone hole themselves up into a corner. So when a new neighbor moves in next door, Lark is horrified to discover Everett Holden is a stick in the mud type person who’s taking hermitness to the extreme.

Larkspur orders a talking parrot for a “welcome to the neighborhood’ gift, but it is not so politely refused. So, she sends over a box of mothballs to let Everett know he needs to come out of storage. He responds with a judge’s gavel, that Larkspur takes to mean that she’s out of order.

Everett requires peace and quiet, but with Larkspur as his neighbor he’s not getting anything done. Will Larkspur be able to draw Everett out of his shell and into true love?

Larkspur Dreams is a fun, lighthearted read with several funny moments. As a whole, the story is well-told, with a strong faith message. Larkspur is as fun-loving as her name, and as polar opposites attract, Everett is night to her day. I honestly wonder how she could be so attracted to him, although he did behave in a typical heroic manner.

Fans of contemporary Heartsong Presents will not want to miss Larkspur Dreams. It’s a quick read, guaranteed to remove you from your daily stresses as you step into someone else’s life for a short time.
