Take the Trophy & Run (Bloomfield Series)

Take the Trophy & Run (Bloomfield Series)

$19.99

Paperback
Like Mitford and Lake Wobegon before that, Bloomfield is a place we could all call home. Here, the residents enjoy a splash fountain in the town square, dine at the “Fancy Schmantsy” on tree-lined Main Street, and dream of reaching the 10,000 population mark -- only 22 more folks to go!

The Bloomfield Garden Club, an all-ages group of lovable oddballs that will stop at nothing to make everything beautiful, maintains this piece of heaven on earth. But even such idyllic places as this have their share of
dramatic characters and stories to be told.

Take, for instance, craft store owner Amber Weathersby. She wants to be a member of the garden club but has never received the blessing of a green thumb. Her friend, Stan the mechanic, has helped as much as he can -- even adding a timed sprinkler system to Amber’s garden -- but the results never live up to the club’s expectations.

Her only claim to fame with that gang is her semi-famous garden gnome, Gnorman, who gets to hold the prized trophy each year in the Bloomfield Spring Fling contest’s winning garden.

But this year, instead of being the life of the party, her little star is gnomegnapped, and worse, the club’s irreplaceable trophy has gone missing with him. While Amber is chasing the gnome around town trying to win the trophy, Stan is chasing Amber, trying to win her heart.

Hampered by a Weak Start
3 stars By Iola, Nov 09 2012
Amber Weathersby owns the Gardens and Gifts Galore. Each year, she places a gnome in the garden that wins the Bloomfield Garden Club prize. Except this year, the Gnormon (with a silent 'g') the gnome has gone missing, along with the trophy. She soon finds a clue, a poem comprised of letters cut out of the local paper, and this leads her and her best friend, Stan Wilson, to the gnome. But no trophy. And then Gnormon disappears, and so starts the chase to find Gnormon's next location, and hopefully the trophy.

As he works with Amber, Stan discovers that Amber isn't just the girl he grew up with, his oldest, closest friend. He's in love with her. And she seems to be drawing away from him. I found Take the Trophy and Run difficult to get into, although I usually enjoy cozy mysteries. The style of writing didn't really work for me, although there was nothing I could pinpoint as why. Take the Trophy and Run wasn't bad, it just didn't grab me until about three-quarters of the way through, and that wasn't enough to make up for the weaker start.
