    A second helping please

    Once again, I had a grand time while reading this book. It was funny, the characters were fleshed out more, annoying characters made no so annoying anymore, and lots of good food mentioned throughout. People are more open in this book and not afraid to speak what's on their mind. I was really glad that Lisa Leann's daughter put her foot down to her mother's advice column. I felt like it was about time someone put a stop to her gossiping ways and especially from someone who Lisa Leann would actually listen to. It might get confusing at first about who's who, but each character's story is every bit delicious as the recipes they offer. In the last book, I had complained about how Clay felt like an unnecessary character in the story. In this book, he's more apart of the story as we learn more about his personality. In fact, the reader becomes sympathetic towards him and his unrequited feelings toward Donna. The problem with the love triangle is that you want Donna to end up with Vonnie's son but you want Clay to feel happy too. I also wish that Goldie would be able to be free to move on with her life, but I don't think Jack will allow that. You definitely need some goodies while reading this book, because it will give you the munchies. Can't wait for the third!

    Another good read from these two authors

    This is a great follow-up to THE POTLUCK CLUB. In fact, I am now looking forward to the next one in the series. Laugher, surprises and tears, they are all here. A fun book that is hard to put down.

    Mossy Creek in Colorado

    In Summit View, Colorado, Gold Rush News reporter Clay Whitefield beleieves that the members of The Potluck Club have secrets that he plans to uncover. Currently the Ace Reporter is interested in learning what the youngest and newest associate Deputy Donna Vesey hides behind her visage of toughness as his mind (and his heart) is interested in her. Donna¿s tragic secret lies in her previous job in Boulder. --- Meanwhile Evie and her beau seem in love, but both have commitment doubts. Vonnie's biological son from her first marriage that she hid from her spouse has come to visit her though his arrival could end her marriage as she hid that information too. Lizzy's son Tim is leaving his wife to move back in with his parents. Goldie's estranged husband, abetted by their daughter, plots to persuade her to take back the womanizer she tossed out. The Potluck Club is there to help each other, but even the club is in jeopardy due to the antics of bridal shop proprietor and known town crier Lisa Leann spreading gossip. --- The second Potluck Club tale (see THE POTLUCK CLUB) is a fun ensemble novel that rotates the subplots between the club members giving the book a vignette feel similar to that of Mossy Creek but in Colorado instead of Georgia. Each key thread moves forward with purpose and new ones tantalizingly dangle at the end leading to hopes of a follow-up book. The cast in spite of its size seem real like next door neighbors, and their troubles genuine. Though separate personal filaments are developed they intertwine cleverly like the DNA helix (but six not two strands) as fans of contemporary tales will appreciate Linda Evans Shepherd & Eva Marie Everson¿s fine character driven drama. --- Harriet Klausner

    Delicious Sequel to The Potluck Club

    The Potluck Club ladies are at it again, and ace reporter Clay Whitefield is still trying to uncover all their secrets. But is he keeping a secret of his own? Hiding behind a tough façade, Deputy Donna is haunted by a failed rescue, but there's more to it than meets the eye. Evie has finally caught the man of her dreams, but the road to romance is unpaved and rocky. Vonnie's birth son has decided to come to Summit View, but his arrival may destroy her marriage. Lisa Leann is opening a Bridal Shop with a dating service. A self-appointed match maker and devoted gossip, she's wreaking havoc among the Club members. Lizzy's son, Tim, is having marriage problems of his own and wants to move back in with mom and dad. Goldie's estranged husband and her daughter are conspiring to get Goldie to take him back, but years of her husband's philandering have her wary. When she meets a man in her new job, will she find her heart to be trustworthy? Trouble brews at every turn, and the ladies need prayer. But when the Potluck Club threatens to break up, can they find glue strong enough to mend it? Funny, endearing and poignant, the members of the Potluck Club walk off the pages and into your life. They're your next door neighbor and pew partner at church. One of them might be you. I loved the first book of the series, and this second one is even better, if that's possible. What I find so fascinating, and frankly amazing about this book, is the way it's written (see tomorrow's interview with Eva Marie Everson). Each author writes three of the characters, yet their stories intertwine seamlessly. As I turned the last page, I was delighted to see there is a third book in the works. I have grown to love the ladies of the Potluck Club, as you will, too. It will be fun to see if Clay ever uncovers all their secrets. Somehow I have my doubts.
