Pumpkin Everything by Beth Labonte tells the story of Amy Fox. Successful horror writer Amy has called off her wedding, a fall-themed wedding that has left her cold at the thought of anything pumpkin or fall. An accident changes everything; her grandfather needs someone to look after him or he will have to go into assisted living so Amy takes off back to her hometown of Autumnboro. It’s more than just the thought of fall and pumpkins that puts Amy off though; it’s the green-eyed boy she left behind. Kit Parker was one of the reasons she left Autumnboro behind and he could be the reason she comes back, until his secret is revealed and everything changes. Plus there’s the fact that Amy might just have based some of her book characters on real townsfolk...
Pumpkin Everything by Beth Labonte is a cute story set in the New Hampshire White Mountains. The descriptions of the scenery, of the town, all drew me in and had me picturing the place in my mind, bringing the story well and truly to life. This was an easy read, a story that bobbed along at a nice rate. There was always something going on and a couple of different stories being woven through the main plot. The characters are likable and they are identifiable; I’m sure we all know a Kit or an Amy, and especially an Amy’s mother! I enjoyed this; it’s a quick read with plenty of go, well written and very descriptive. Great book for someone who wants a couple of hours curled up on the sofa with an easy read.
