    One thought on “Recipes for Easy Living

    1. Ken Bickley

      Of all the books Bonnie has urged me to read, this is probably the least likely one I would have just picked up and read on my own. I mean, c'mon! Manly guys don't read books with "recipe" in the title! But it turns out to be a real gem. Curtiss Ann Matlock is purtnear as good as Jan Karon. (That's East Texan for "on a par with".) And that's high praise coming from me, folks. Matlock remembers the difficulties of being twelve years old so well. And Corinne has to deal with that angst as well as [...]

      Recipes for Easy Living is told from the perspective of Corraine, a 13th year old girl, who loves horses. thinks about having a boyfriend and wants to get her ears pierced and wear lip gloss. She lives with her Aunt and her new husband. Corrine loves Valentine Ok where hse has lived for 3 years since her Mother gave custody to her sister Marlee. christmas is coming and Corrine's mother writes she is comming for Christmas. Corrine loves her aunt and isn't sure how she feels about seeing her mothe [...]

    3. Marjorie

      This book continues the story of Corrine, niece of Marilee Holloway. Corrine's mother was in abusive relationships and called her sister to come get Corrine. During the 3 years Corrine is with Marilee, she only hears from her mother sporadically. Then one Christmas she comes to visit and maybe stay. Corrine doesn't know which person to ask for permission to go out, etc. Corrine is also starting her teenage years which adds to the angst.

    4. Anne

      This was quite an odd book at first. I wondered if it was 'for real' as it was so simplistic - I wondered if I'd picked up a child's book by mistake but then I got into the old-fashioned style of it and was reminded what it was like to be 13 years old innocently pottering through life. I wouldn't recommend buying this book but if it fell into your lap it might be worth a read.

    5. Deborah

      Thirteen-year old Corrine is being raised by her aunt & uncle. Surpisinglym, her mother comes for an extended visit. Corrine fit into her new life in Valentine, OK, and isn't sure if she wants to move back with her mother, that is, if her mother asks her to. Corrine loves horses and has a crush on the boy who she helps clean the stables.

    6. Claudia Cheyne

      This book has been on my shelf for a while. I picked it up not realizing it is a Christmas book (the cover doesn't give a clue). I've enjoyed everything I've read by this author. "Recipes" was a perfect choice to get me in the holiday spirit.

    7. Sandra

      A continuation of the series, and one of my favorites so far. These are truly great books, so down-home, inspiring and humorous. I love all the characters, especially Corrine, Willie Lee, Aunt Vella, and so many more. Good recipes too! Love,love,love Curtiss Ann Matlock's writing style.

    8. Peggy

      This was an ok book but didn't like it as much as the others I have read. Narrated by a 13 year old girl, it lacked the personalities of Matlock's other books. It's set once again in Valentine, Oklahoma, but is further back in time that her other books.

    9. Jami

      I just randomly picked this up at the library and I'm so glad I did. It was a fun book and it has some great recipes in it that I'm wanting to try! You'll see how their incorporated in the story when you read it.

    10. Lanette

      This is definitely a stand-alone book. I never would have known it was a part of a series if I hadn't googled the author. It was a cute read and I loved all of the characters, but I think it's more of a brainless 'beach read' than a bookclub pick.

    11. Mary-Frances

      Love all of Curtis Ann Matlock's books. The characters are great - I thought her pre-teen in this book was so cute and took me back to those years!

    12. Katy

      I love books about the South and/or set in the SOuth. Matlock does an excellent job of getting in the head af a 12 year old girl on the brink of adulthood.

    13. Elissa

      All of her books are about life and love in a small southern town. I would recommend them if you're into that. They're easy reading and forgettable, but enjoyable.

    14. Pam Masters

      Found the story was a bit long winded, though I did enjoy it. Not sure if it worked as a first read of the series or not (didn't know it was book 5 in a series when I picked it up).

    15. Jenny

      This book was like taking a pleasant stroll. Nothing too exciting, or breath taking, but peaceful and pleasant. Will probably read more of her work.

    16. Amy

      Just picked it out from the library and it turned out to be an easy read from the 12 yr old perspective, also had faith in it which was a nice surprise
