    " Uncle Jack is my favorite character, but Primrose is as spunky as they come. In this companion novel to Everything on a Waffle, Primrose makes a news friend in Ked, a foster child, only to lose his unexpectedly. She tries to play matchmaker between her Uncle Jack and Mrs. Bowser, but that does not work out qe the way Primrose wants. And she remains close to Bert and Evie, her foster parents from the previous book. This story is like sitting on your front porch in a small town and watching all the happenings. The characters become your neighbors and you hope everything will turn out for the best for them. A delightful read for anyone who enjoys a good family story. "

    " I loved Everything on a Waffle and this sequel/companion novel did not disappoint. I love a setting of a small town with quirky characters all in everybody's business and I love a feel good story with a feel good ending. I also love recipes full of cheese and flour and cream (and then some more cheese!), although I'm not so big on mini marshmallows. "
