Review: Sweet Dreams at the Goodnight Motel

By  Curtiss Ann Matlock

Description: (from author website):

“Divorced from her high school sweetheart, Claire has lost the flavor of life waiting for Andrew to come back. So she leaves everything behind and ends up in her father’s hometown, Valentine, Oklahoma. Before she knows it an overnight stay has turned into weeks, and Claire has found something she had almost forgotten existed—a place to call home. Life is sweet again…until the day her ex-husband arrives in town.

Join the intrigues and fun in the beloved, not-so-sleepy town of Valentine that has captured the hearts of readers everywhere.”

My Thoughts:  This was the first book by Curtiss Ann Matlock that I have read. I enjoyed it.  It was a light read and a nice change from the mysteries I normally read.

Claire travels from Louisiana to Oklahoma and we are able to watch her transform through the characters in the story as she looks for happiness. Claire is able to accept her life and finds a place where she belongs in the small town.
