Anything Can Happen on Blinney Lane
Agatha Blinney’s curse is unleashed when Franci Doltman dresses up as her favorite movie star. Now the storeowners on Blinney Lane must rally together to save Franci before the possession claims her forever. Valerie Millville is tired of her controlling mother, disappointing men, and being misunderstood. Determined to escape her life on Blinney Lane, she and troublemaker Ricky Allister volunteer to find a cure by venturing inside one of the cursed weeping books.
From mythical lands to peculiar allies to other worldly creatures, Valerie learns not all stories are written in stone—or even in one dimension. Can she and Ricky save Franci in time or will their friend become another casualty of the curse that binds Blinney Lane? Will Farwin Wood show them secrets undiscovered or are mysteries merely in the eye of the beholder? Get ready for an adventure that will transport you into the pages of a fantasy world beyond reality.
A Note From the Publisher
"This was a great story and very well written. When I started the story I realized it was the second of a series and thought probably needed to have read the first to pick up the story, but that was not the case."
~ Sue Baldwin, LibraryThing Early Reviewers Trade
"When I heard there was a sequel to The Weeping Books of Blinney Lane, I was hopeful but doubtful. The first was so perfectly complete. Well, Drea Damara outdid herself, doing the almost impossible and improving on an already powerful story."
~ John Darryl Winston, author of the IA series

Thank you NetGalley and BHC Press for this arc. I did not realize this was a sequel when I first started reading it. As a result, I was a little disoriented reading the first 25-30 pages. By that time, I was captivated and kept on reading and enjoying! I found this to be a charming and gentle fairy tale, despite the "monsters" (all animal, no humans). a very sweet adventure story with strong characters (though some did suffer from befuddlement in new worlds). I'll keep an eye out for the 1st book and hope to see this series continue!

It's the second book I read in this series and I think it's even better than the first one. I love how the world building is being developed, the cast of characters and the style of writing. The plot is engaging and entertaining, it never bores. I look forward to reading the next installment. Highly recommended! Many thanks to the publisher and Netgalley for this ARC, all opinions are mine.
