I love books about deep relationships between people, particularly women. I generally search them out, and even when I am not totally enthralled with the book, it generally serves its purpose in showing the importance of the relationships to each party. I didn't get that feeling with this book. In fact, I felt these characters were more acquaintances and I could easily see them just passing in the night. I may have set up the disappointment for myself because the book I had just finished when I picked this one up had been so good, I couldnt get enough reviews up on the various review sites, but overall, I found this book not much deeper than a romance novel. Below is the book I had finished before I started this one and if you read it, I think you will quickly see how a book about friendship should be written.

    Pleasant but extremely shallow

    As a selection for our Book Club, I read Friendship Cake with anticipation of a great read, but was extremely disappointed. The characters were one dimensional and completely predictable. It seemed that the author was imitating one of the recent 'Southern Women' movies that have been released over the past few years, but without the depth of character development that makes a person real. The formula for plot could have been created by my 16 year old. Overall--sweet, but so SHALLOW.

    Not really worth it

    I had a hard time keeping up with the characters and who she was talking about. I couldn't visualize them in my head and that's not how I like to enjoy reading books.
