#2: The Potluck Club - Linda Evans Shepherd & Eva Marie Everson (The Potluck Club, Book 1)

Synopsis & Book Info:
Meet the Potluck Club--six women who gather each month to share their insatiable appetite for good friends, great food, and a pinch of prayer. Their seemingly unlikely friendship brings a little spice to life in Summit View, Colorado. But when they send up enough misinformed prayers to bring down a church, things get interesting . . . Evie's niece arrives with a broken heart and a big surprise. Lisa Leann tries to take over. Goldie's marriage turns sour. Donna stews over a strange encounter. Lizzie's librarian eyes are on the lookout for trouble. Vonnie must come to terms with a secret she's kept hidden from her best friends. But who knows what life will serve as The Potluck Club discovers that friendship is no piece of cake and a little dash of grace, like salt, goes a long way.

My Opinion:
I am not a fan of electronic books, but then I had an opportunity to read this book for free if I downloaded Amazon's Kindle. I couldn't resist, and I'm so glad I did.
This was a fantastic story!
Entirely women's literature with a Christian point of view.
Every character, every situation, every word, flowed through me in a way that I'll be telling all my friends about this story. It is friendship, and belief in community that shows a spirit in people that's admirable. This is clearly defined in this book.
This is going to be a favorite of mine for a long time.
Not only was it a great story, with great characters. It had recipes in it!!!!
You know how I love me some recipes. And I wrote them all down too. Will be making the Chicken Marsala before you know it!


Recommend? Yes.

~I received a free copy from Amazon. I was not compensated for my opinion.~

REVIEW: It was weird starting off with a He-Man lookalike, Thunder the Barabarian), until I realized a character from the film was watching the cartoon in the airplane. Still, it was kind of cool to reminice about two cartoons from my childhood. So many great actors bring the film to life! What a fun story it was too! Although
