About Judy Christie
Author Judy Christie loves to help busy people slow down and enjoy each day more – in her series of novels about Green, Louisiana, and her Hurry Less Worry Less nonfiction books. Judy started her writing career as the editor of The Barret Banner in elementary school and has kept a journal since she was nine (and still has all of them). She likes strolling around flea markets, walking in the park near her North Louisiana home and visiting friends and family on her vintage green Kitchen Couch. Her most recent books are Downtown Green, fifth in the Green series, and “Hurry Less Worry Less for Moms.” For more information, see www.judychristie.com.
About Downtown Green
When the highway bypass around Green opens with much fanfare, downtown dries up faster than cement on the roadway. Businesses close and the hospital becomes a clinic. While the road is progress to some, it seems to be leading Green toward a national trend–a town that is merely a shadow of itself.
With the town going backwards, Lois Barker Craig is determined to save Green while juggling life as a new mom and owner of The Green News-Item. But can her plan rescue the town from the path it’s on? And what about Dr. Kevin and her son, Mayor Eva, Coach Chris and other familiar Green faces? How does this affect them?
I could just kick myself for not reading the first 4 books in this series, before curling up with DOWNTOWN GREEN! Although it does just fine as a stand alone…I feel like I would have enjoyed it even more, had I already “invested” in the town and the people who live there.
I must admit, that I do often judge a book by it’s cover. It’s the first thing that draws me in. With DOWNTOWN GREEN, once I was there, I wanted to stay. It really offers all that I look for in a good book… for me, anyway.
1) Characters, that I can imagine being in my life.
2) A good story line.
3) No “objectionable” language, or gratuitous/explicit sexual content.
Go ahead, call me a PRUDE…I wear the title proudly. If your taste in literature, is similar to mine, then I would highly advise that you call your local broker…I mean book seller, and put down an offer in a home in GREEN. If you do, I’ll bet my bottom dollar, that you like your neighbors, and want to stay for a lifetime!
