    all of Haywood Smith's books are great.

    Haywood Smith writes books that have such hysterically funny portions that I laugh out loud and my husband wants to know what is funny, so I read him portions of the books and he always laughs, too. All of these books are eagerly awaited.

    When I click on author's website, it appears that this author's website is no more (same goes for keying in author's website directly). Does anyone have any additional info on what's going on?

    Things that make you go 'hmmmm'...

    Is it me, or does the author tries just a bit too hard to make this book as funny and hard-to-put-down as the first one?

    Disappointed In This Sequel

    After reading The Red Hat Club I was anxious to continue reading about what has transpired with the characters Georgia, SuSu, Teeny, Diane, and Linda. I was very disappointed in this sequel. I think Haywood Smith went too far out on a limb with Teeny having all that money and treating the 'girls' to extravagances. The Vegas kidnapping was funny but the one-month, carte blanche plastic surgery cruise that she arranged for them all was unbelievable and really ruined it for me. The internet dating part was good, the pregnancy test hillarious but it's just that gosh darned extravagance with Teeny is hard to take. Not a world that we the readers can relate to. The party at the end also was unbelievable and far fetched. I was very let down after having finished this book. Is there a sequel? If so, I hope it will be more down to earth than this one. I'm still a fan of Haywood Smith and the Red Hat Girls, I hope I can get caught up in the lives of these women again.

    Most are familiar with the historic warning cry, 'The Redcoats are coming! 'The Redcoats are coming!' Today, according to author Haywood Smith (born Anne Haywood Pritchett), the rallying cry should be 'The Red Hats are coming! The Red Hats are coming!' What is it about Southern women (Steel Magnolias, Being Dead Is No Excuse, etc) that makes them such fascinating protagonists? Don't know what their secret is - just that it works. 'The Red Hat Club Rides Again' is a tribute to all women in midlife who have suffered a few setbacks and bounced back. (It's a bit like the bravado song 'I'm Still Here.) Of course, not all in that age group are fortunate enough to have a multi millionairess gal pal who can grease any number of wheels and make life a lark. So, reality isn't an issue here. If you enjoy an imaginative romp, give a listen to this group as they set sail for a plastic surgery cruise and jet off to Las Vegas to rescue a friend. Cynthia Darlow deserves a sequin embroidered red hat for her entertaining voice performance - never too much drawl, always pinpoint articulation and timing. - Gail Cooke

    Good read.

    I picked this up as a followup to the first book. While I did enjoy it, it does not stand out among the better books I have read. Probably better for an older crowd.

    fine contemporary tale

    Though the membership are all in their fifties, the Red Hats still meet every month for lunch though their choice of locale has changed somewhat since Teeny has twenty million earned during the Clinton stock market boom to waste. Instead of always a high class Atlanta area location, the group also meets elsewhere incuding the Bahamas though that was part of a month long plastic-surgery extreme makeovers cruise.--- When member Pru breaks the substance abuse tenet of the twelve commandments, her southern sisters (Georgia, SuSu, Diane, Linda, and of course Teeny ¿ someone has to pay for this extravaganza) ignoring tradition 5 of minding your own business, converge on Las Vegas. Sin City is not prepared for the invasion of the Red Hats who plan to intervene and kidnap Pru so that they can take her to clean herself up in the Rockies at an exclusive rehab center, but first they must play the slots.--- The Red Hat Club once again proves that life begins at fifty as these Southern steel magnolias refuse to allow time or family relationships to interfere with their long time friendships. The current tale is intriguingly deep yet irreverent as the members satirically assault anything in their way, just ask Elton John, who will surely wear a red hat in his next public appearance. Haywood Smith provides a warm delightful tale of strong friendships that mean helping one another live life to the fullest.--- Harriet Klausner
