Book Description

Four best friends. A lifetime of memories. Nothing could ever come between them … or so it would seem.



Welcome to the quaint town of Honeycomb, Alabama where life is anything but serene. Roxie Fisher must fight to save her bakery from the greedy clutches of her lifelong nemesis, Imogene West, while trying to finagle a way to keep Gus Malone, the love of her life, from falling for her spoiled but beautiful designer friend, Rose, who's determined to make Gus number four in her long line of husbands. Roxie get lots of help and unwanted advice from Bobbi, her busybody friend and Pollie, her hypochondriac sister.

Things really heat up when some long-hidden letters are discovered, bringing to light a shocking scandal that threatens to rip apart lifelong friendships and reek havoc on the town.

Lots of cat fighting and cake slinging going on in this heartfelt story about the friendships that define our lives and the secrets we all keep from each other.



"A wonderful novel about four remarkable women whose long-buried secrets rock the foundations of a small southern town. Told with wit and southern charm, I couldn't put this one down. Cathy Holton, Author of popular southern novels, including Revenge of the Kudzu Debutantes and The Sisters Montclair

"If you love novels about women and their undying friendships, novels about the South, and novels about food, you'll love The Paper Rose Club. I can't wait to read the next one." Gina Hamilton

"I love novels about food, especially southern food! Reading about Roxie's orange rolls and all of her fabulous creations made my mouth water. I loved the romance and mystery. This is a great novel about the South. Sadie Peterson

"This novel is southern romance at its best! I love books about family life in the South and women's friendships. I laughed and I cried. I couldn't put this one down." Jo Hammerton

"The claws came out in the cake-fight scene. Loved it! Domestic life has never been this intriguing. I loved the small town romance aspect and how it's delivered southern style!" Winnie Singer

Experience family life in a small town where everybody knows everybody and your deepest, darkest secrets are liable to be featured in next week's addition of The Busy Bee Reporter. (Is it true that Dr. Amos Grey buried his poor, dead wife in the front yard?)

Stop by The Cornerstone Bakery to get a taste of Roxie's famous orange rolls or a double chocolate cake, boasting a pound of chocolate in each one. If you need to rekindle the romance in your life, Bobbi's chocolate chip cookies are sure to do the trick. Word around town is that they're magic—give one to a prospective suitor and he'll be swooning over you for sure! But don't even think about getting the recipe because Bobbi keeps it under lock and key. She won't even divulge it to Roxie, her best friend.

Take a stroll around the Honeycomb Square and find a good, shady spot to sit a spell and relax. If you're lucky, you might catch a glimpse of Rose, the bombshell interior designer that's often seen sauntering around with a different man on her arm. Rumor has it that she's on the lookout for husband number four.

Lots of southern style sass and sizzle in this southern novel about small-town family life, romance, betrayal, and the friendships that carry us through it all. Take a minute to search inside the book (above). Once you enter the town limits, you'll never want to leave!

4.0 out of 5 stars Fascinating, even for men December 26, 2012
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I've spent the last couple weeks with four older women. That's right - four southern women. And my wife knew all about it, even excited for her turn to spend time with these women ... Roxie, Bobbi, Pollie, and Rose.

On a flight home from Oakland just before Christmas, a burly bearded man sat next to me on the plane and wondered why I was with such women, but I was too enthralled with their gossipy lives I didn't have time to explain my fascination. There is something simple and ordinary about them, yet the quartet is adventurous, humorous, and deeply stunning.

I was humbled to be allowed in on their secret thoughts and feelings, like part of the club - a club as important as a never-ending friendship.

These ladies are the affectionately stubborn residents of fictional Honeycomb, Alabama, which is the quaint, but spirited setting for the third novel written by Jennifer Youngblood and Sandra Poole. The mother-daughter writing duo both grew up in the northern hills of rural Alabama around such women like the characters in their charming story titled The Paper Rose Club, which is the first in a planned series.

The lives of these four women are defined by their exclusive club, which was formed after an act of "vandalism" by two childhood best friends against one of their mothers. Through tears, the mother speaks the motto that would help form The Paper Rose Club, but also define these four women for life.

"Just remember that paper roses'll last forever...just like your friendships."

The modest statement sets the tone for a story with unexpected twists and betrayal when friendships are tested and even damaged.

5.0 out of 5 stars Hart of Dixie meets the Mitford Series February 18, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition
The Paper Rose Club is delightful, funny, heart-wrenching and sometimes silly. The main characters are four, strong, southern women. If you like to be entertained - made to laugh and cry. You'll love it. It's reminiscent of the popular t.v. series, Hart of Dixie and Jan Karon's The Mitford series, where the characters of small southern towns interact with each other while celebrating their triumphs and overcoming their struggles. The Paper Rose Club is the first in a series. Watch for the second novel, The Honeysuckle Inn, scheduled to be released this summer.

5.0 out of 5 stars What a great read! June 15, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I normally don't write reviews basically because I'm not good with words usually leave it up to others but this book was so good I just had to say a little something. Once I started reading this book I couldn't put it down. It keeps you wanting to know whats going to happen next. I can't wait for the next one to come out. They include a chapter of the next book in the series at the end of the book and from the looks of it it will be just as good in fact I'm very disappointed I can't continue to read it. Pleas keep them coming. Your writing style is so refreshing. Something for everybody know matter what your preference of books are you want be disappointed reading this book. I would love to know the date of when the next one will be out.

I really liked this book. Although it started out a little slow, it continued to gain momentum and ended well. I did not see the end coming and was surprised when it did. I would like to read some of their other books.

5.0 out of 5 stars Funny, interesting and a "must read." October 23, 2011
Format:Paperback
The Paper Rose Club was one of the best books I've read in a while. It's the story of four best-friends who grew up in a small southern town. Youngblood and Poole have captured the essence of small, southern towns in America with humor, compassion and mystery. If you haven't read this book, the first in a trilogy, you're missing out.

5.0 out of 5 stars Real people August 25, 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I really enjoyed this book, so much so that I read it in two days. The characters are just like real people I know, a mix of good, bad, complex. There was enough mystery to make you wonder how this was going to play out.
