LAST DANCE AT THE JITTERBUG LOUNGE by Pamela Morsi, 2008. This is a sweet little love story. It starts out with the not so perfect marriage of Jack and Clair Crabtree. Jack has a pretty young woman working for his architect firm while Clair is at home raising their 3 daughters. Then one day they get a call that Jack’s 83 year old grandfather Jack (Buddy) Crabtree Sr. is in the hospital with a brain bleed, so Jack and Clair travel to the old homestead and must decide what to do about old Buddy Crabtree, as he seems to have the final word. The book chapters run like a time sequence, stating the day, date and time. Buddy Crabtree is visiting his wife’s grave when he passes out. Of course we don’t know what happened yet, because it is followed by his grandson Jack and his wife Clair’s story.
NOTE: I find the flashback chapters to when Buddy and Geri were courting, very inviting. So far I’m really enjoying this book.
