The Most Famous Illegal Goose Creek Parade

54321( 5 )

In this first book of the Tales from the Goose Creek B&B, you’ll fall in love with a small town that feels like coming home. Its quirky characters and their many shenanigans will make you laugh out loud as they touch a place in your heart.

Even though retirement is still three years away, Al Richardson is counting the days. He anticipates many enjoyable years in which every day feels like Saturday. But Al’s wife, Millie, has different plans for their retirement. When she learns that a Victorian-era home is up for sale, Millie launches a full-blown campaign to convince Al that God’s plan for them is to turn that house into a B&B.

But a B&B won’t be the only change for the small Kentucky town. A new veterinarian has hung up her shingle, but she’s only got one patient—the smelly dog belonging to her part-time receptionist. And sides are being taken in the issue of the water tower, which needs a new coat of paint…but no one can agree who should paint it.

The situation is coming to a head. Who could have imagined a town protest over a water tower? And who would believe it could culminate in an illegal parade?

Get lost in a novel that reminds you why you love reading.

A Word from the Author

"Occasionally a character will push his or her way into an author's imagination and practically demand to be written about. With the books in the Tales of the Goose Creek B&B series, it wasn't just one character—it was an entire town! Al, Millie, Dr. Forsythe, Susan, Norman, Junior Watson, Mayor Selbo and the rest are a lot of fun to spend time with, and Goose Creek is a town where I wish I could live. Besides, who doesn't love a parade?
Virginia Smith, author of The Most Famous Illegal Goose Creek Parade

Write A Review

"Virginia has written a ton of books in several genres, and I have enjoyed them all. [Virginia] has the ability to transport the reader into the environment of the story."
Susan Stitch

"A delightful read. If you've lived in a small town, or even visited one, you'll know that Virginia Smith's story is spot on! I especially liked the variety of 'recipes' in the book, including lemon cake, dog biscuits, and creating a healthy crabitat among others. I want another Goose Creek book!
Vannetta Chapman, author of Anna's Healing

"The author draws the reader in with humor, intrigue, and believable characters. If you've ever lived in a small town, you'll be right at home. If not, it's time you tried small-town life. Why not start with the folks at Goose Creek? I'm looking forward to the next installment."
