Sixth South is such a great book! I loved the way the lives of these four women were interwoven, blending together as these friends shared (or hid) their various problems from the others. The thing I love about Michele Shriver's writing is she always tackles issues that I think are relevant and interesting. Equal rights? Re-entering the dating world after being widowed? Abuse? Addiction? Each women has their own trials to deal with, and it is interesting to watch them work through their problems. Friendships are destroyed, love blossoms, political battles are faced. There is a lot to this book, and I couldn't read it fast enough.
If you read Shriver's first book After Ten you will be delighted to see some of your favorite characters back in the spotlight. Even though this book is a spin-off of After Ten, you can read them in any order. I read Sixth South first, then read After Ten, then re-read Sixth South. So, jump in and read this one first if that is where your whim takes you. As far as the characters, I especially love Sarah and Kelsey. They are so funny, often making me laugh out loud. However, new to this book, Olivia is an awesome character and her scenes are so sweet! Really enjoyed them.
One of the ways I judge a book is whether or not I would read it again. I will most certainly be reading Six South again in the future! Another terrific book from this author. I look forward to her next one. In the meantime, I'll have to be content re-reading After Ten and Six South.
