If you are looking for a fun read with women friendships, a wonderful southern low country buzz running through the background and the smell of something good cooking on the stove with a tasty drink in your hand, reach for a book by Dorthea Benton Frank. ~Sheila
When Lisa St Clair watches her favorite patient Kathy Harper lose her battle with cancer, she is impressed with the two friends that stayed by Kathy’s side during her long battle. Carrie and Susan have been placed in charge of taking care of Kathy’s personal things and Lisa offers to help in any way she can. The three women become closer as they try to solve the mysteries of Kathy’s past that she had kept so quiet. With relationships popping up everywhere, a crazy greedy landlord, a wonderful 99-year-old woman, a young adult making poor choices and a dog named Pickles, who knows what will happen?
When I had an opportunity to invite a group of friends over to discuss this book I quickly said yes. If it has Dorthea Benton Frank’s name on it, of course I would say yes! At the time of our gathering none of us had read the book but we all received it that afternoon. I started the book later that day.
Having a fun event is a great way to kick off reading a book. I enjoyed All The Single Ladies by Dorthea Benton Frank. It is an easy summer read. I liked the cast of characters and the story line was set up as a light mystery centered around a woman who I wish I as well as the three protagonists knew a little better. Kathy sounded like someone worth knowing. There are a few life lessons mixed within the pages, light sprinkles of wisdom when it comes to family dynamics, I suspect each of us as readers can find someone within this book or some situation that is discussed that hits a familiar note.
A sweet easy read and perfect for Summer time.
