While we're on the subject of chick lit for the mature woman, Joan Medlicott is back with A Covington Christmas. The latest in her enduring series about widows Amelia, Grace and Hannah finds the trio transformed into wedding planners when it is discovered that the long-ago wedding vows of several local couples are null and void. What begins as a mortifying discovery eventually yields some unlikely friendships and unites the three ladies of Covington more than ever as they work to set things straight by planning a ceremony for the affected couples. Just try to keep a dry eye as some of Covington's most enduring couples walk down the aisle again. A Covington Christmas is a pure charmer, a rich Southern tale about love and loyalty. It's a beautiful reminder that some things just get better with age.
