Tiffany Wright never planned to become a torch singer, much less a pregnant and single one. It was only with the help of her Fat Fridays luncheon group of strong women—counting their blessings, not their calories—that she found the courage to leave Beau, her once wonderful husband destroyed by drug addiction.
Now those same women are her supportive audience at Sassy Saturdays, the enchanting evenings when Tiffany belts out ballads at a local club. Things heat up when Kevin Bascombe—tall, dark, and exceedingly handsome—moves in next door…and turns out to be both Beau’s new business partner and Tiffany’s literal savior in a storm. And when tragedy strikes, Tiffany and Kevin find themselves on the same side of a legal battle, while Tiffany must summon the strength to stand up to her domineering in-laws or risk an unbearable loss.
With blue martinis as their talisman, the Sassy Saturdays friends, each facing familial challenges of her own, unite in support, finding hope in friendship, sisterhood, laughter—and colorful cocktails.

Friends helping friends is always a good thing and author Judith Keim has created a core cast of characters that will touch your heart during just that. Narrator Joyce Bean shines as she brings these characters to life. Her vocals and timing enhance the story. Her interruption of the characters’ emotions adds to this delightful story. SASSY SATURDAYS explores the bond friends can sometimes have despite their age difference and their home life These characters are well-developed and likable. They’re so realistic there’s a couple you want to shake like your sister to make them see the light. The story moves at a steady pace and holds your attention. While the story moves from one character to the next, it’s a smooth transition and flows easily. There is a good blend of romance, humor, suspense, and drama mixed with the friendship for a well-rounded tale. As this is the second installment in the Fat Fridays Group series, the characters continue to evolve and expand. However, new readers/listeners to the series won’t be left in the dark. The author includes enough backstory to keep everyone on track without retelling the first story. This is a charming and entertaining story about friends, family, and love.
