I loved this novel for its descriptions of the town of Zion and the wonderful characters. The final chapter with its big social conscience finish didn't seem to fit in with the rest of the novel, but I've known so many older women like all the 'aunts' in the book. Read it for the enjoyable character descriptions.

i couldn't wait to read this because i'd liked the author's other book so well. it was very different but did not disappoint me.

I loved falling into King's bucket of southern small time life. It was a hoot to read about Mt. Zion, and it's colorful inhabitants. At first, I thought that the ending didn't exactly fit the rest of the story, but after sleeping on the completed story, it was the perfect method to show the strength of the women living in Mt Zion. Southern women have their own tap dance to life and heaven help a person if they mess around with their family.

Loved this book for its humor and sensitivity while probing important truths. Most striking of all was the authenticity of each voice that told the story! A really good read. Would love to hear an audio version done by a real Southerner

I had already read The Same Sweet Girls by Cassandra King and loved it, so I was a bit disappointed in Making Waves. But I believe this was Ms. King's first book so I know her writing improves. I generally read an author's first book and work my way through. Now I know why! The characters were well drawn and fully fleshed out. But the story was just a little off kilter and I found the ending a disappointment. However, given that this is her first work and I loved the other book I read of hers, I will dedfinitely read the rest of her works. And it's southern fiction, one of my all time favorites!

True southern flair! Good story, but disapointing ending.

Love Cassandra's books, but this one wasn't my favorite. Wished for a different ending...
