Publisher's Summary

Home is the place to heal, right? That's what Dillon Michaels is hoping, at least, as she leaves her disappointing career and nonstarter love life behind to help her grieving and aging grandfather on his small Oregon farm. The only problem? Her eccentric mother beat her there and has taken over Dillon's old room. After a few nights sleeping on a sagging sofa, Dillon is ready to give up, until she receives an unlikely gift - her grandfather's run-down vintage camp trailer, which she quickly resolves to restore with the help of Jordan Atwood, the handsome owner of the local hardware store.

But just when things are finally beginning to run smoothly, Dillon's noncommittal ex-boyfriend shows up with roses...and a ring.

Full of quirky characters, family drama, and sweet romance, The Happy Camper will have you scouring Craigslist for your own diamond-in-the-rough camper to restore and haunting your local hardware store for a handy guy to help your dreams come true.

Oddly religious

This book is oddly religious and that felt awkward. My biggest problem was the discussion that mental health problems can be fixed by prayer instead of therapy and medication. Dangerous idea.

Review from a Camper

I am a camper which is what drew me to this book and it did not disappoint. It was a nice story. My only complaint is that I wish I could read more of story past the end.

Shallow

I found this book to be an extremely light read. I so wanted it to be better. It was very juvenile at times. As a reader I was not given much chance to get to know the characters well before drama and conflict ensued. I found the main character to be especially annoying. She was very wishy-washy, and weak minded.

Nice, clean story

Another sweet, clean book by a favorite author. However, after listening for 8 hours of misunderstandings, it is irritating to have only a 2 minute happy ending. Why such abrupt ending? Several questions unanswered. Still a nice story.

Cutesy and Formulaic

I was so hopeful the first half of the book, but the second half was just too cheesy and Jesus-y for my taste.

Cute story to listen to..

..while on a caravanning holiday. We had renovated an old vab so it struck a pleasant memory chord.
