Editorial Reviews

Review

"Angela Hunt has penned another winner! From the opening scene, she had me wanting to find out what would happen next to the people of Peculiar, peculiar and otherwise." (Robin Lee Hatcher, bestselling author of Heart of Gold and Belonging)

"Hunt (The Nativity Story) bakes up a Southern confection of a novel that’s on the sweet side but satisfying. The three Caldwell sisters are as different as can be, though two of them are twins. Carlene left their small home town of Peculiar, Fla., to sing on Broadway, but botched throat surgery steals her voice and sends her home, where twin Darlene is still nurturing jealousy of her glamorous sister despite her own considerable but more domestic talents. Magnolia, the youngest, has a sad backstory, a set of quirks, and two scene-stealing dogs, Lucy and Ricky. Hunt folds into this recipe for family dramedy two men, tangled family history, and smalltown dynamics. The result is deeply engaging characters that readers will care about—enough to overlook some minor problems with credibility and coincidence in plot development. Hunt writes with crisp confidence. Readers will appreciate the bonus of Southern dessert recipes from Darlene’s kitchen, unless they’re watching cholesterol." (Publishers Weekly)

"Hunt has penned another winner with this down-home novel. Readers will find elements to identify with in each of the three sisters, who at times come across as caricatures. Yet they have endearing qualities, and overall themes of family and following God’s lead in life make this book shine." (Romantic Times (four stars))

“…this small-town southern story has a big heart and refreshing characters.” (Booklist)
