There’s a stunning premise. There are characters so three-dimensional, they reach right off the page and shake your hand.  There’s raw emotion, heart-rending situations, and a multi-leveled search for resolution and closure.  Oh, and there’s a dog named Barleycorn.

        From the first page to the final paragraph, you won’t want to put Connie Chappell’s Proper Goodbye down. What a fabulous read.

​        I couldn’t put it down. Proper Goodbye by Connie Chappell is a heartwarming tale of love, loss, and forgiveness. This is an emotionally gripping story in which long-held secrets are revealed, giving way to second chances.

        Proper Goodbye tells the uplifting story of faith giving people the courage to overcome adversity. The characters deal with grief and loss in all its manifestations.

        The beauty and wonder of small town life are demonstrated as characters come together to help each other through life-altering events and forge the bonds that allow hurt and pain to dissolve into the splendor of love and redemption.
