Reviews - What do customers think about Flies on the Butter?
not up to par Oct 8, 2008
I was very disappointed that this book did not have the standard wit and humor displayed in her previous books....I found it to be depressing, even with "redemption" at the end.
Thouroughly enjoyed Jun 28, 2008
I just discovered this author and am enjoying each of the books I have read. Flies on the Butter was especially a great read as the relationship between the grandfather and granddaughter reminded me of my childhood and our relationship. Also, her relationship with her Mother - right there also. So many of the comments on church, food, activities - it took me back. I would recommend.
Not as good as it could have been Feb 7, 2008
The story line had a lot of promise. I wanted so much to love Rose and love her story, but I think the book became trite and boring. I have a hard time believing a husband would be that forgiving. I liked all the people Rose met along her journey; I just didn't feel her repentance for her actions. It really did not grab me and I believe it could have.
Real life, real hope Nov 23, 2007
Denise Hildreth's "Flies on the Butter" is my kind of novel! I was so fascinated by the inner workings of her heroine, Rose, that I had to make this novel the "dessert" of my day or I would not have gotten my own writing done. If you love mysteries, you'll enjoy following the trail of what's been going on in Rose's life. If you like relationship novels, you'll be in reader heaven with "Flies on the Butter," and you'll be thrilled with the outcome. Her novel is smut-free, a very important criteria for me. I am delighted to find another novelist who writes about the things I write about and creates the kind of books I love to read. Readers, you don't want to miss "Flies on the Butter"! It's really a great book to look forward to as you finish your work day! Kay Moser, novelist www.kaymoser.com
Southern Charm and a Strong Plotline Sep 30, 2007
Thirty-something Rose Fletcher, a successful lobbyist in Washington, D.C., is on her way to visit her small town Southern home for the first time in a long time, but there's a lot more to her than meets the eye. The novel's fairly traditional prodigal/coming home plot is enlivened by the author's Southern charm, wit, and sensibility. The storyline flows smoothly, the flashbacks are natural, and the character development is strong. It's the kind of book that won't let you stay at arm's length; it demands to pull you in. And you won't be sorry.
