Is there anything you would change about this book?

Take out the fortune teller.

What was your reaction to the ending? (No spoilers please!)

Yes! Wait a minute, what? Did I hear that right?

What about Karen Savage’s performance did you like?

She didn't talk in a monotone, nor did she get overly dramatic.

If this book were a movie would you go see it?

Probably.

Any additional comments?

It was a fun book to listen to...entertaining, clean, not too violent and different. A woman action hero meets everyday plain Jane!

While Nettie is shopping at the market, her cart collides with another cart pushed by a nice-looking man. A week goes by, and she runs into the same man at the post office. They get acquainted and learn their deceased spouses are buried in the same cemetery. They also learn from each other that their children want them to sell their houses and move in with them.

Is there anything you would change about this book?

It could have been a little more

Would you recommend Dream House to your friends? Why or why not?

If my friend were looking for a short, uplifting story, I might recommend it.

Do you think Dream House needs a follow-up book? Why or why not?

I don't think a follow-up book is needed. A sequel(s) could be created by continuing to delve into the lives of the main characters' children and grandchildren and showing the families melding together into one big family.

Any additional comments?

It was a nice, short read. It was shorter than the books I am used to, but a good way to introduce myself to using my new kindle.
