Book Description

Settle back into that comfortable chair and enjoy a second helping of poignant, humorous and nostalgic tales about how things used to be in the legendary South. From vindictive mules and small town marriage rituals that include a pig, to Grandma's story of how a quilt square got her a husband and a home remedy of the hemorrhoidal variety that goes awry, More Sweet Tea delivers what readers have been thirsting for since the first in the Sweet Tea series, Sweet Tea and Jesus Shoes. Other books in the series: On Grandma's Porch and Sweeter Than Tea (now available for preorder).

5.0 out of 5 stars entertaining insightful look at the south November 10, 2005
Format:Paperback
As expected from the Mossy Creek ensemble, this anthology provides an entertaining insightful look at the south. The fifteen tales are well written with each focusing on relationships made better by sharing sweet tea (no artificial ingredients allowed). As this reviewer read two to three tales a night, the charming stories reminded me of the trial scene in My Cousin Vinnie in which Pesci as the defense lawyer describes how to cook grits as he actually uses that as a metaphor on life. That is what the MORE SWEAT TEA and SWEET TEA gifts the audience. Fans will find the anthology quite endearing and groundbreaking as these belles of the south now include a male contributor this time, (Mike Roberts) amidst the iron maidens with hearts who have provided strong regional short stories with a variety of regional recipes such as Aunt Sophie's Pennies from Heaven or Bubba's Chili that go well with MORE SWEET TEA.

3.0 out of 5 stars More Sweet Tea August 28, 2007
Format:Paperback
I love books like this, they remind me of my childhood. I read Sweet Tea and Jesus Shoes, loved it, laughed, cried, all kinds of emotions and memories.
With More Sweet Tea, I didn't find it to be as well written. Not enough funny stories, not enough of the kinds of memories I like. But all in all it was a book that was worth reading

4.0 out of 5 stars Short stories, varied July 8, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
More Sweet tea is a collection of short stories that are all different. Set in the South, it had lots of Southern Charm and Grandma characters. The stories are good length to read one or two while waiting for something else, or read the whole book for a fun relaxing, sometimes silly laugh out loud experience. It helps if you've lived in the South or know some characters from that region of the country. I highly recommend it for some summer enjoyment.

5.0 out of 5 stars If you don't bet, you can't win July 2, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This book was a recent Kindle Daily Deal and I decided to take a flyer on it. While I like anthologies, ones as topical as this one aren't what I usually read. So I had my doubts about how I'd like it.

But the gamble paid off well; I thoroughly enjoyed the book as a whole. The stories range from touching to humorous. While I'm usually not a fan of 'country humor' (who can compare to Twain?), the humorous stories in this book weren't bad. The non-humorous ones were pretty good.

Even though I wasn't raised in the South, all of my extended family was and many of these stories reminded me of my childhood when I used to spend time there.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Southern Stories! August 9, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I can relate to so much of what I read in More Sweet Tea! But I think even if you aren't from the South you will enjoy this book because the stories are so readable and friendly. I wasn't sure how I felt about a collection of stories, but now I will consider anthologies in the future. Recommend!

4.0 out of 5 stars More Sweet Tea August 8, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
The book was not what I expected but I did enjoy it. Being from the South, there were some good recipes inspired by the vingettes in the book. Therefore, I kept the book on my Kindle. I usually delete books after I read them.

2.0 out of 5 stars More Sweet Tea leaves me Sour August 7, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
The way this was introduced has left me with a sour taste. I wasn't familiar with the Sweet Tea Stories and I thought it was going to be more of a story not stories. I was very disappointed in this book. It should've said this is a book of short stories right at the start.

By M.O.M.

This book is so southern!! The people in this sound like my friends and neighbors. This should be required reading for anyone from our Northern States thinking of moving South.

I should have paid more attention to the book description. My taste in Southern short stories tends toward Eudora Welty, Flannery O'Connor, and William Faulkner, and these stories... Read more

Okay stories in general with a couple of standouts. I like the ones that tell personal stories, while making a larger cultural point.
