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.

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.

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.

This was a cute story, but it really did drag. I actually got so frustrated at the slowness of the story that I just skipped ahead to find out what happened. Also, I found it very frustrating that these women remained lifelong friends despite the fact that they didn't seem to like each other very much, nor did they often treat each other well. It's hard to really enjoy a story about people that were more than I could stomach.

It held my interest enough to finish it. I'd really like to say 3.5 instead of 4, because it was a notch above a 3, in my not-so-humble opinion. I've been accused of being a grammar nazi, but the couple of editing errors really didn't bother me that much. "She sunk..." was one, and something about a character going to "lay down" was another. Also, she "poured" over something instead of "pored." Okay, I am a bit of a nit-picker, but compared to some of the other free books I've read, this one was Pulitzer material.

Like another reviewer, I really didn't like Roxie's character all that much, but she did redeem herself in the end. It was hard for me to see why she even cared what her no-good husband had done, once she knew for sure what an alley cat he had been.

I am curious about the next book in the series.

My wife loves this book so much she has the paperback and the Kindle version. Here is her review:
"Four friends...sisters, cousins, neighbors, classmates...bound together by youthful adventures and 'The Paper Rose Club' growing up in the South. Now adults in the small town of Honeycomb, everything isn't as it seems to be. This story grows in complexity as it progresses. It kept me guessing with unexpected twists. I absolutely love the interwoven tapestry of lives created by Jennifer Youngblood and Sandra Poole."

At first I thought I wasn't going to like this book at all, maybe it was going to be a bit slow for me. Slowly but surely it drew me in until I just couldn't put it down!

Excellently written with great, believable characters in a story that doesn't require you to abandon reality. I will definitely be reading more about this lively gang of ladies!
