A second helping please Mar 20, 2007
The Potluck ladies are back with more adventures and more food to share. In this go-round, once again each character has her own back story that takes special meaning in her life. Evie is trying to get attention of her sheriff boyfriend and somehow becomes engaged to another man! Goldie is trying to settle into her new single life, but her former husband keeps trying to win her back. Vonnie brings her long lost son to meet the family of the father he never knew while Donna seems to be catching his eye and that of reporter Clay. Lizzy's adult son has moved back home after being separated from his wife. And then there's Lisa Leann, whose wedding shop is a hit and she starts her own column with a little help from the tidbits she picks up around the store. The characters all intertwined through their potlucks which bring a sense of togetherness to the story.
Once again, I had a grand time while reading this book. It was funny, the characters were fleshed out more, annoying characters made no so annoying anymore, and lots of good food mentioned throughout. People are more open in this book and not afraid to speak what's on their mind. I was really glad that Lisa Leann's daughter put her foot down to her mother's advice column. I felt like it was about time someone put a stop to her gossiping ways and especially from someone who Lisa Leann would actually listen to. It might get confusing at first about who's who, but each character's story is every bit delicious as the recipes they offer. In the last book, I had complained about how Clay felt like an unnecessary character in the story. In this book, he's more apart of the story as we learn more about his personality. In fact, the reader becomes sympathetic towards him and his unrequited feelings toward Donna. The problem with the love triangle is that you want Donna to end up with Vonnie's son but you want Clay to feel happy too. I also wish that Goldie would be able to be free to move on with her life, but I don't think Jack will allow that. You definitely need some goodies while reading this book, because it will give you the munchies. Can't wait for the third!
Even Better Than the First One! Oct 13, 2006
I was very pleasantly surprised to find that the second book of the Potluck Club was even better than the first! The characters are very well rounded and interesting, deep and thoughtful. The ladies go through realistic trials and tribulations and progress and grow in realistic ways. I like that there are not "pat" answers to all the problems, but the ladies learn to trust God more in the midst of all the complications. I'm looking forward to the next installment!
Flavorful Feast of Fun Aug 15, 2006
Reading this delicious and savory sequel to The Potluck Club was like being drawn to a banquet table because of the glorious smells. Each character serves up a new, tasty dish to enjoy. Vonnie, Evie, Goldie, Lisa Leann, Lizzie, and Donna are the main course at this banquet table of life, with minor characters providing the appetizers and desserts. The characters are full of secrets, loves unrequieted, and on different journeys that require serious re-examination of their faiths, their pasts, and their desires. What Linda Evans Shepherd and Eva Marie Everson manage to cook up in this engaging story of the women of The Potluck Club is a story that is truly a buffet of flavors--someting there for everyone to dish up on their plate. You'll be inspiried at how these six diverse women deal with real life issues, employing faith, forgiveness, family and love.
My mouth is already watering for the third installment of The Potluck Club, as I'm certain we'll get the chance to feast on the news of whose going to win Donna's heart. Wont' we?
Some disconnectedness, still good Christian read Aug 15, 2006
The Potluck Club: Trouble's Brewing by Linda Evans Shepherd and Eva Marie Everson is the second book in the Potluck Club series. This book picks up shortly after the first one left off. Evie and the sheriff are still dating (but not for long), Donna is trying to hide her deepest secret, Clay is still trying to get up the courage to ask Donna out (and starts a weight-loss plan), Lizzie's married son has moved home, and everyone else's lives are in equal chaos. Even the club itself seems to be falling apart. And that does seem to be the weak point of this book. While we get to see each woman's struggles, there are few scenes of the women all together working as a team which was a real strength in the previous book. Maybe the author intended to create the sense of disconnection between the women. There are only two times in the book when all the women get together. The book was definitely an enjoyable read, and the teaser at the end of this book for the next one will make you tear out your hair until the third comes out.
Outstanding! Jul 23, 2006
