The Potluck Club by Linda Evans Shepherd



Read in January, 2015

In the Colorado town of Summit View, women from Grace Church meet once a week to pass a hot dish and to pray. But the Potluck Club, as they call themselves, is a recipe for disaster when they send up enough misinformed prayers to bring down a church.

When I downloaded this free ebook for my Kindle app, I had no idea that it was Christian literature and ended up liking the book even with the references and scriptures sprinkled in. There were many strong women characters of various ages with the same problems we all face or have faced. Marriage, family, secrets, regret, work, misunderstandings, nosey neighbors and dealing with difficult personalities. The majority of the characters stand by each other through thick and thin. The title of the book includes the word "potluck" because the group of ladies met once a week to discuss issues and they each brought a potluck dish.The recipes to the foods mentioned in each chapter can be found in the back of the book. There are two more books in this series and I hope to read them both.
