really liked it
bookshelves: 2011, chick-lit, motherhood, friendship
Recommended for: fans of Luanne Rice, Jane Green, Kate Jacobs
Read in April, 2011

I enjoyed this much more than I thought I would. So Much so that I got sucked in to staying up way past my bedtime (which is what merited 4 vs. 3 stars).

I have had a bag of friendship bread starter before and know what a pesky thing it can be. I love how it was passed around this town and created such a sense of community.

I enjoyed the different women, the sense of community, the growth of the characters. I even liked the changing perspectives, and the bread vignettes sprinkled throughout. I also liked the small town Illinois (close to Chicago) setting.

The chapters skipped ahead at the end so all was wrapped up. I enjoy it when the various plot lines are wrapped up.

3 words to describe this book: friendship, growth, happy

Readalike: Friday Night Knitting Club by Kate Jacobs (another tale of friendship, with some sadness thrown in). Also Mia King.

This author has written other books under the name Mia King (which I enjoyed as well)
