The Secrets of Peaches is so much better than its predecessor I can't even handle it. The storyline in Peaches was terribly boring, the characters horribly cliche, and in the end, wasn't very satisfying at all. In the Secrets of Peaches, all the characters suddenly turn into real people! Everyone has real problems and real emotions that are easily felt by the reader. The three girls become much more relatable. Murphy is no longer this haughty sexpot with a stone cold heart, but rather an attract ...more

It's been so long since I read Peaches that I didn't know how much I've missed these three girls. This book was much more heart breaking than I anticipated. I thought it was going to be I cute summer read. I never expected it to have me tearing up through most of it and crying at the end of it. Can't wait to read Love and Peaches and see how everything turns out for Murphy, Birdie and Leeda as well as all the other characters I have come to know and love in this series.
3 ou 3,5/5 je ne sais pas encore.

1) Je n'étais pas du tout dans le mood pour lire ça et du coup ça m'a soulée 2) les filles m'ont vraiment agacée par moments 3) quelques répétitions.

Je lirai cela dit le tome 3 parce que je veux savoir comment l'histoire finit ! Mais j'attendrai une ou deux lectures, peut-être parce que je dois rendre le livre à la médiathèque...

So, the drama that I said was missing from the first Peaches book? It's here, in the second. This book was really melancholy and while the first made me feel good, this one made me feel a little bummed out.

The Secret of Peaches is a book full of discoveries, the coming of age blooming once more. Jodi Lynn Anderson’s voice and characters captivated the essence of the seasons and turmoil that went along with the fading tendrils of things that could have been or could possibly be… Very touching a thumbs good read.
Sequel to 'Peaches' so all the characters were familiar, but didn't do what I expected them to do. This is the kind of chick-lit I actually feel comfortable recommending- it's not all clean and nice, it's got a little scandal, but isn't all trashy ala gossip girls.
Ah, blir så irriterad på både Leeda och Murphy för hur de agerar ibland. Men det är en okej bok och jag kommer definitivt att ta mig an sista delen i serien direkt.

Took a while to pick this book up after I bought it, but I love how the author crafts this book by slowly revealing the characters and keeping you hanging. The ending was perfect.

i give this a solid 3.75-4 stars/5.

in my opinion this book is just as a good as the first! it's just as cute and funny. this book did have some sadder moments as well though. i still love these characters so i'll definitely finish up the series when i can get my hands on the last book

the sequel to Peaches is heartfelt and starting to develop, not as a summer book, but a coming-of-age story. everything in Bridgewater, GA, is somewhat manageable and more difficult to comprehend, but understandable. This summer everything changes for our 3 georgia peaches.

Leeda has been named the Pecan Queen and feels even more resentment and anger towards her mother, but as you read in the story, you can see that she is the way she was when she was little and how everyone around her consider

The Secrets of Peaches by Jodi Lynn Anderson

I thought this book was very good and I liked the plot of it. The characters all were very unique, which made the book interesting. I think that the characters changed throughout the book, which made the characters more interesting also. I liked how the setting was in high school. This made the book relatable to life today and made it seem like it was real life. In the book, there were real life situations which made the book funny and inte

-from inside flap-

Last summer, three very different girls--wild Murphy, perfect Leeda, and shy Birdie--etched their initials on a magnolia tree at Darlington Peach Orchard to symbolize that their friendship would last forever. But can it survive the less-than-peachy year ahead?

Murphy, more in love with Rex than ever, is torn between her big-city dreams and following her heart..all the way across the railroad tracks and into Rex's arms.

On retrouve les héroines de Peaches... L'intrépide Murphy, Leeda qui peine à trouver sa place face à une mère si parfaite en apparence et si froide, et enfin Birdie, qui est perdue entre l'entretien de son verger de pêchers et son amour pour Enrico, reparti au Mexique à la fin de la saison...

C'était mal parti pour cette lecture, je peinais à retrouver l'ambiance du premier tome, sa fraicheur et son insouciance. Je l'ai mis de côté, repris, remis de côté.

I neither liked nor disliked this The Secrets of Peaches. There are some things that I liked and there are some things that I didn't like - leaving me on the fence overall.

There's something about Leeda that I can't stand. I didn't like her in Peaches, although sometimes it felt like she had potential and could redeem herself. This time around, however, I just got the "stuck up snob, spoiled little bitch" vibe. I get it, her mom hasn't ever been there the way she needed. Leeda didn't need to be s

Birdie is dealing with a long-distance relationship, now that Enrico has gone back to Mexico, as well as worrying about her housekeeper.

The Short:
I didn't like this as much as the first book, but that is usually the case with second books in trilogies. This was just melancholy, and was just kind of sad.

The Good:

I really like and connect to the characters in this series. I really like the three main girls, and hope that they stay friends through the third book.
The setting was fun, and well done, and I think I liked it more because I am familiar with Georgia.
I love all the times spent at the peach orchard. I think it is the perfec
Sadly, I didn't really care for this sequel very much. It's more or less about growing up and learning to be an adult, but unlike Peaches, where Birdie, Murphy and Leeda spend a lot of time together, in this second book, they spend most of their time apart, and while I like them as a group, I find I don't find them all that interesting individually. Birdie is likable enough, but she also has the least developed personality of the 3. Leeda spends the entire book about as apathetic as you can get, ...more

When I picked up the first book (peaches) I expected crap but ended up actually enjoying it, influencing me to want to read the sequel(this one). In peaches it introduces you to the three girls who couldn't and or wouldn't see themselves together, but with coincidences they found themselves creating a unforgetable friendship that would bring them through troubled times, climb over cowering obsticles, and steping out of their saftey zone passing the test that comes with being true friends.

To call this book cute would be very off. This book is not the summer read that I was looking for. I understand that the first one was what you would call cute and a bit cliche, but I don't understand why the second one had to be so sad. Leeda's situation had me balling my fist with anger because she couldn't get the love that she wanted. Murphy's and Rex's situation had me thinking that it was stupid, yet understandable, because they both had to go their separate ways. Birdie's situation had me ...more

This was that rare case: a sequel I liked slightly better than its predecessor. In most ways, The Secrets of Peaches is like Peaches - same characters, same tone, etc. As I mentioned in my review of Peaches, though, I got annoyed with the first book because it was so obvious that the characters were going to become friends, but they still took so horribly long to get there. The second book was more readable because the friendship was already established. I also liked that Anderson had the girls ...more

L'odeur des pêches sucrées a laissé place à l'automne et l'hiver pluvieux. Le beau temps s'en est allé et a emmené avec lui les idylles de l'été et leur belle amitié. Les défauts des uns et des autres ressortent et plus personne ne s'entend vraiment. Murfy la rebelle n'ose pas avouer ses sentiments à Rex, Birdie ne croit plus aux coïncidence désormais et Leeda se trouve en éternel conflit avec sa mère. Leurs problèmes personnels empiètent sur leur amitié mais finalement elles se retrouvent.
