Editorial Reviews

Library Journal

On the heels of their successful "Potluck Club" series (The Potluck Club, The Potluck Club: Trouble's Brewing, and The Potluck Club Takes the Cake), the authors team up again to bring back Evangeline, Donna, Lisa, Lizzie, Goldie, and Vonnie. In this enjoyable new series, the women are launching a catering business, which is soon threatened by the personal problems that arise. Including recipes for such delectable dishes as Texas hash, Southern pecan pie, and pineapple muffins, this competent mom-lit title will appeal to fans of Robin Jones Gunn's "Sisterchicks" or Neta Jackson's "Yada Yada Prayer Group" series. Recommended for CF and women's fiction collections.

I enjoyed this quick read, the recipes in the back look tempting. Not sure if there is a specific sauce in the story. The characters are a little too predictable and not deep, but the authors try to make them human, likeable but also falable. The one thing that was annoying is that so much time was spent re-telling the characters' background. This book is really an extention of the "Potluck Club" Series and all that background is in those books. If the authors wanted to start a new series then they should start from scratch in the first book and develop new characters. I'd buy another book in this series if they write it, but if too much time is spent retelling the characters' history, and not developing new stories about them, then it might be my last.

Shorter than the regular PC books but just as satisfying. Was disappointed that it was so short.

I enjoyed the story but didn't realize it would have the religious connotations to it. I'm not a religious person so to speak, so despite that, i still enjoyed the story line. I found it hard to keep with all the different characters at first, but it all came together eventually. Easy read...lighthearted.

Fair reading with some chapters better than others. Parts of the book leave you hanging, others alouding to the past leave you in the dark, not giving the info you need for the story to make sence.

Everyone sounds the same and really need a strong description to distinguish who is who since language and pace are all the same pagecounter

Too many characters. I confess I did not read the whole thing but it seemed like a light read. Also I think this is the start of a sequel series so there is a lot of unknown history that you are given a slight knowledge of
