This was such a great book! If you are a fan of Southern fiction, like DIVINE SECRETS OF THE YA-YA SISTERHOOD you will love this book. A group of women, friends since childhood, find their bonds tested when a long-buried secret comes to light. Poole and Youngblood have a deft touch with character and give this book the perfect mix of drama, humor, and even mystery.

I’ve spent the last couple weeks with four older women. That’s right – four southern women. And my wife knew all about it, even excited for her turn to spend time with these women … Roxie, Bobbi, Pollie, and Rose.

On a flight home from Oakland just before Christmas, a burly bearded man sat next to me on the plane and wondered why I was with such women, but I was too enthralled with their gossipy lives I didn’t have time to explain my fascination. There is something simple and ordinary about them,

Not my favorite by these authors. I felt it was for a little older audience maybe...

Nobody does Southern lit better than Jennifer Youngblood and Sandra Poole. This duo has done it again with a fresh, fun and entertaining Southern chick lit you'll love.

I received this book as part of Goodreads First-Reads for review and I have to say I enjoyed the book. It was simple and fun and I am interested in where the characters all go from here and am awaiting the next book in the series.

I always enjoy books about a group of people and the things they have shared through life. Debbie Macomber does this exceedingly well, and while this book is not in the league, it is still a worthwhile book to take your mind off what troubles you and take you somewhere

This was a slow starting book, but once you got into it, it was interesting. It gives a good story of how 4 childhood friends grow through to their midlife. Shows how people can change over time through their friencships and adult lives. Interesting.
