Molly dusts off her pride and heads out to a CRAZY LITTLE TOWN CALLED LOVE (PandaMoonPublishing) in the second book in Jill Hannah Anderson’s series, THE TO HELL AND BACK CLUB. Nick single-handedly implodes their six-year relationship, forcing Molly to make some huge lifestyle changes. With no real career or boyfriend and a big fat mortgage to pay, Molly decides to downsize. She changes everything and buys a General Store willed to her mother. At thirty-two, Molly leaves behind the Twin Cities and her one BFF to start a new life out in the sticks. No sweat, huh?
Well it takes no time for the locals to realize they’ve got a city-slicker in town, but she does have a local connection so that makes it somewhat easier. First step is to bring “Love’s General Store,” affectionately known as “Rosie’s,” after her dead mom’s “mom,” up to working order. She needs to do some fixing up and painting as well as getting eatable food on the shelves. Of course, we have a male, that turns her life into a living hell, while looking absolutely delicious.
Much like her first novel, THE TO HELL AND BACK CLUB, Jill has a special gift for creating characters readers like, and story lines we can relate to. CRAZY LITTLE TOWN CALLED LOVE is like midwest comfort food, perhaps a nice hot plate with a nice bottle of merlot. There’s nothing too heavy or controversial, just people not getting along due to a bunch of misunderstandings and eventually the girl gets the guy, or is it, the guy gets the girl?
I can’t help but get the feeling after reading Jill’s novels, that she’s read a lot of fellow-Minnesotan, Lorna Landvik. And that’s a very good thing!
Born in California, Jill Hannah Anderson lived everywhere from the Azore Islands to Florida. After her dad left the Air Force, the family settled in St. Paul, Minnesota, where she lived until she graduated from high school. Voted “Most Imaginative” in high school, Jill assumed everyone else looked at life with “What If ” questions too. She’s often told that she asks too many questions, but finds it a great way to learn about people.
Jill lives on a lake in a small town in Central Minnesota with her husband in their empty nest where they welcome their six adult children and an ever-increasing number of grandchildren when they come to visit.
Her first women’s fiction novel, The To-Hell-And-Back Club, was published last year.
She is a proud member of Women’s Fiction Writers Association (WFWA). When she isn’t writing or reading, you’ll find her running, curling, biking, and enjoying time with family and friends.
