Reviews - What do customers think about The Potluck Club Takes the Cake (The Potluck Club, Book 3)?

An entertaining, light story with plenty of faith and romance  Jul 15, 2008
In THE POTLUCK CLUB TAKES THE CAKE, Linda Evans Shepherd and Eva Marie Everson continue the romance and mayhem of the lovable (and some not quite as lovable) ladies of the Potluck Club in Summit View, Colorado.

If you haven't read the earlier books in the series, THE POTLUCK CLUB and THE POTLUCK CLUB--TROUBLE'S BREWING, I would advise that you do so first (this review will have plenty of spoilers otherwise!). If you begin with this novel, you'll be lost in a maze of situations and characters. Consider yourself warned.

For those who have read installments one and two, you'll be happy to discover all your favorite characters picking up where they left off. Evangeline "Evie" Benson (the founder of the club) is getting ready for her upcoming nuptials to the local sheriff, but his ex-wife is back on the scene and stirring the proverbial pot. Evie is also feuding with wedding consultant and romance coach Lisa Leann Lambert, who is her co-sponsor of the Christmas Tea and also planning Evie's wedding down to the last smear of icing on the cake. Goldie Dippel is trying to patch things up with her estranged husband Jack, but his last affair seemingly has had disastrous consequences, and whether they can overcome this hurdle seems dicey.

More mayhem: Single gal and deputy sheriff Donna Vesey, a self-described "crazy lady with a gun," is feeling estranged from faith, even as she is hotly pursued by a bevy of eligible men. Among them is Vonnie Westbrook's long-lost son, who is the focus of a gaggle of paparazzi. Meanwhile, Lizzie Prattle's comfortable mid-life routine is completely upset by a medical emergency, adult children whose marriage is in crisis, and her mother, who has Alzheimer's and needs her more than ever. The ever-hopeful Clay Whitefield, the nosy reporter for the Gold Rush News, gets a spa day makeover to boost his chances with Donna. He is also determined to keep his eyes out for any personal developments in the lives of the Potluckers in hopes of writing a novel about them...and there's plenty to keep him busy in these 400 pages of Potluck antics.


What I enjoy most about the Potluck Club books is Shepherd's and Everson's good sense of humor. A mischievous tone creeps into the most unexpected places ("That woman has been around more tracks than a Derby horse."). I'd love to see more of that kind of fun. I'm also a sucker for the recipes that begin each chapter (and are fully outlined at the end of the book). Good food makes an agreeable story even better.

The novel is not without its challenges. Readers will have to concentrate to stay with the many points of view throughout the story. However, this allows Shepherd and Everson to develop different characters and situations in a way that helps readers to grow to care about them. It's also difficult to believe that Goldie doesn't own a cell phone. A woman on her own without a cell phone? Puh-leaze. There are some clichés: the emergency baby delivery (how many times have we seen this done in some form in inspirational fiction?) and the mysterious child from the past who appears as an adult just in time to make the characters' lives awkward. The authors work hard to give both scenes a slightly different twist, which helps them go down easier.

Yet these are small hurdles to jump over in order to enjoy an entertaining, light story with plenty of faith and romance thrown in between the covers. Potluck Club fans will be happy to find the same sort of flavorful fare that hooked them on the first two books.

OMG  Mar 31, 2008
I read this book in a single day while on spring was really good! I can't believe ministered to me...and made me was really waht I needed. I loved it so much that I went out and bought the 2nd one the next day and was absolutely thrilled that there is a third one...
The Potluck Club Takes the Cake  Oct 1, 2007
I loved this book. Everyone of the books in this series made me laugh at times and cry at other times. I can't wait for the next one to become available.
The Potluck Club Takes the Cake ~ Reviewed  Oct 1, 2007
The church ladies live on, and if you liked the first two Potluck Club books, you'll love this one. I just know these ladies are members of my church, and if you look over your shoulder, you may see them in the pew behind you, too. The sometimes zany, sometimes crotchety, and sometimes out-of-control characters are always charming. Shepherd and Everson have delivered another fun-filled read with some unexpected results. Things I wanted to happen didn't, but it was okay. With surprises at each turn, this third book of the series does indeed Take the Cake! And the recipes are delicious, too.

I feel like a member of the club  Oct 1, 2007
This is the third book in the Potluck Club series, and I felt like I was visiting old friends, and catching up on the news. Each character is special, and I find I can hardly put the book down, waiting to see what is going to happen next. I primarily read mysteries, but a friend highly recommended The Potluck Club. This series has totally captivated me.
