This is a great light southern fiction book. It is fun and quirky but with a touch of seriousness and sadness to it. The whole time I was reading this I was thinking - "Steel Magnolias", "Hart of Dixie" and "GCB", I could actually picture some of the characters playing the parts in this book. I love southern fiction because it is usually fun and this book did not disappoint me.
Denise is a great character builder. I have to say that is definitely her biggest strength. As in all of her books you really get to know the characters very well. There is such detail. You really feel like you are watching a movie or TV show. I can almost hear that southern twang while I am reading.
This book seemed so real to me. The situations were real. So many times (not always) a Christian Fiction will paint a pretty picture where everything is perfect with the world. I mean, they're Christians, they're perfect right?... wrong! Even Christian sin (no one is sinless except Jesus). We all have our secrets, we all have our regrets, even us Christians. In this book... boy do they have secrets! The characters are so human; they have flaws just like the rest of us.
Here are a couple of my favorite quotes -
"I need a googler!"
He walked down the stairs from the bonus room. "Mom, you've got to learn how to work a computer."
She stared at him like he had three heads. "Jack, I have five children. You don't have five children because you want to do things for yourself. You have five children so that when they are able, they can be your slaves.Read more ›
Scarlet Jo is a hoot and a handful. When I first met her I wasn't sure I liked her. She's the kind of woman that intimidates me just by breathing. She's loud, plain-spoken and oozes confidence.
Just the kind of friend I need, whether I want to admit it or not.
Thankfully, she lives not far from Grace Shepherd. Scarlet Jo's boisterous and inquisitive nature rescue Grace during her darkest days. She coaxes secrets out of her new friend, and when Grace's world comes crumbling down, Scarlet Jo is there to help her rebuild and regroup.
It's that unlikely friendship with Grace that connects the two women to Zach Craig. While Zach at first seems like a dirty buzzard of a man (you won't like him at first), Scarlet Jo also is able to dig a bit deeper and learn the truth of who Zach is and what he is made of.
With a little help from Grace and from Zach's wife, Caroline (a woman you probably won't like immediately, either). The twins come across as obnoxious (Zach is living in estrogen-land), but they grow on you.
What we end up with are real, imperfect characters that teach us more about grace and mercy and finding your heart than we thought we needed to learn. We see the power of secrets kept and secrets shared, and that even those who help us in our time of need can have moments of great need themselves.
Ultimately, I grew to love Scarlet Jo (as did Grace's best friend, Rachel--now SHE'S someone I like immediately!). She's a hoot and a handful...Read more ›
Writers of fiction are taught to show, not tell. Jones is really good at this. Due to the nature of this book, though, she's cleverly included mentors in the story who do quite a bit of telling as they counsel those who've been hurt. These mentors have lessons of their own to learn, too, so we get to see their counselees, who've taken the lessons to heart, turn around and remind their mentors of their own teachings. It's clear that Jones really believes the message she's teaching can help change people's lives for the better. It's one she's learned through personal experience and wants her readers to experience for themselves.
I'll write more about that message when I review "Reclaiming Your Heart." For now I want to focus on "Secrets over Sweet Tea," the stories of three people who've been deeply wounded by life and their recoveries in the small Southern community of Franklin, Tennessee. These characters and their friends are amazing--and so is the community.Read more ›
