    1. A special thank you to Lake Union Publishing and NetGalley for an ARC in exchange for an honest review.APRIL’S RAIN, the third installment in The Tucker Series, by master storyteller, David Johnson --is an explosive, inspiring and emotional reunion of Tucker and her beloved family. After many years of tears, fears and pain, they all come together, different people having faced many tragedies and heartaches, for a heartfelt reunion with tears of joy!Come inside and sit a while, enjoy some homem [...]

    2. David Johnson has created a family and cast of charachters that I find myself thinking about as if they are part of my own life. Not since Lonesome Dove have been so entranced and invested in the welfare of fictional charachters. After I read Unexpected Frost I had to take a minute to start this book. The pull of emotions I felt for all of the charachters when Ella passed was unexpected. I mean c'mon! I read A LOT and I love a lot of characters.but am rarely as affected as I have been in this se [...]

    3. I won this book on good reads. Thank you for picking me. I loved everything about it except the ending. It was like--"WHAT" I wanted more I had questions that were left unanswered. but I guess there will be another book in the series and I'll have to wait and read that. This book was great. The characters were supurbe and easy to relate to . The dialect of Tucker was easy to follow. The story was about April who comes from a dysfunctional farm family. She was always different (being poor) and wa [...]

    4. ExcelentThe Tucker series is one of the most uplifting and moving books i have ever read. I'm 72 years old and have been reading books of all kinds all my life.

    5. I so love reading the Tucker series. I am looking forward to book 5. (hope it comes out soon) I love in this book how they all come together once again.

    6. Let's Use Coincidence instead of a Plot. This book has so many plot gaps it is almost silly. Reads more like Family counseling 101 than a continuation of the Tucker series. I love the sensual reality of the Tucker books as a southwestern transplant to KY and TN. But this book was " in sore need of a smack" from an editor. Be sure you read the first two books where the characters are developed or this one will make no sense.

    7. April's RainDavid Johnson has written a great series. I'm ready to start book 4. He has great characters, and at times I feel like I'm right there with them. Sometimes life is hard no matter what age you are there are always consequences for every choice we make. For me this was a great read!

    8. Loved this bookAnother great book by David Johnson. Tucker becomes a little more mellow as the story goes on and you realize she is someone you might like for a friend because of her sincerity. Not a lot of class but pure honesty.
