Her books are well written, the characters feel like your best friends. I just read Tents, Trails and Turmoil and I couldn't put the book down, I stayed up till 4 in the morning because I had to finish it and find out how it ended. Behind schedule today and suffering a book hangover but well worth it. Highly recommend both the book and the series. All of her series are very entertaining, fun to read and while you're reading her books for a little while the world and all it's troubles just fade away.
