Sweet Tea Tuesdays by Ashley Farley

(Thank you to the publisher and TLC Book Tours for providing me with a copy of this book!)
about book:

Three best friends met every Tuesday for twenty-six years. And then they stopped.

From the author of the bestselling Sweeney Sisters Series comes a novel of friendship, family, and hope.

When new next-door neighbors Georgia, Midge, and Lula first assembled on Georgia’s porch in Charleston for sweet tea, they couldn’t have known their gathering was the beginning of a treasured tradition. For twenty-six years they have met on Tuesdays at four o’clock, watching the seasons change and their children grow up, supporting each other in good times and in bad. With their ambitions as different as their personalities, these best friends anticipate many more years of tea time. And then, one Tuesday, Georgia shares news that brings their long-standing social hour to an abrupt halt. And that’s only the beginning as unraveling secrets threaten to alter their friendship forever.

my thoughts:

Friendship and family are at the heart of Farley's latest novel, Sweet Tea Tuesdays.  Set in Charleston, this lovely story introduces us to BFFs - Georgia, Midge, and Lula.  Friends for over 26 years, this delightful trio meets up every Tuesday at four o' clock to gossip, chat, and hang out.  It is their one standing appointment that they refuse to give up.  And they have been doing it forever and a day.  So, when Georgia drops a bombshell on her two friends one afternoon - well, lets just say that friendships are shaken up and "Sweet Tea Tuesdays" are no more.

Yep, secrets are revealed and lives are forever changed.  Dramatic, but true.  Sweet Tea Tuesdays is a heartwarming story that you will easily fall in love with - I did.  The characters are flawed and struggling to maintain a sense of control over their lives.  Their problems are rife with drama, but relatable on some level.  And the story is unputdownable.  Told with a touch of "southern charm", this is one story you won't want to miss.  I absolutely LOVED it!

I would happily recommend Sweet Tea Tuesdays to fans of Ashley Farley and anyone looking for their next summer read - you will LOVE this book!!
