Harriet Beamer Strikes Gold – Book Review
Last summer, I fell in love with Harriet Beamer – that irrepressible senior citizen with a zeal for life who agreed to move across the country to live with her son Henry and his wife Prudence when they became concerned for her health – but did so on her own terms in Harriet Beamer Takes The Bus.
This summer, Harriet Beamer is back – and the love affair continues in Joyce Magnin’s latest book, Harriet Beamer Strikes Gold!
In Harriet Beamer Strikes Gold, Harriet now lives in Grass Valley with Henry, Prudence, and her beloved Basset hound, Humphrey – but, she’s having trouble adjusting to her new life. She misses her friends from back East – especially her best friend Martha. She’s finding it difficult to meet people and make friends on her own. Exploring the town is impossible because she can only travel so far on her Vespa scooter. And, worst of all, her prized salt and pepper shaker collection is collecting dust in the garage!
So, Henry arranges an “accidental” meeting with a neighbor, who takes her on a local tour of a gold mine. Harriet is enthralled! This sets the stage for what’s to come: a chance meeting with a down-on-her-luck teen whose father, “Win”, is trying to raise some quick cash for a “guaranteed” investment. Before long, Harriet finds herself leasing a gold mine! Will Harriet’s investment pay off – or has her luck finally run out?
Harriet Beamer Strikes Gold is the perfect summer read – it’s light, bright and fun! If you’re already a fan, you will enjoy catching up on Harriet’s latest adventures! If you’re new to Harriet’s world, you’ll enjoy reading about her family and learning what makes Harriet tick!
