Our Review

This was by far my favourite book of Ashley Farley’s that I have read so far. As with all her books it is the characters that make it so good.

Sweet Tea Tuesdays tells the tale of three friends who have met every Tuesday at 4pm for twenty -six years to drink sweet tea and keep each other abreast of the goings on in their lives. Georgia, Lula and Midge don’t let anything get in the way of their gathering. That is until Georgia brings some news that will bring their gatherings to an abrupt halt. Georgia’s news isn’t the only bombshell about to hit the group of friends.

When the book begins, Lula is sat at home waiting for an engineer to come and fix the air conditioning. She is frustrated that she may end up missing having sweet tea with her friends that afternoon, the first time she will have missed it for twenty- six years.

Lula is the epitome of the stereotype of a woman of a certain age living in one of the Southern states of America. She prided herself on her skills as a homemaker – her culinary talents, green thumb, and special knack for making their abode cosy and inviting.

Lula is always on the go: serving meals at homeless shelters, tutoring underprivileged kids, and various other charitable acts. She is also actively involved in her church and the community around it. Additionally, she is thoroughly cleans her house once a week, tends her garden regularly and is always cooking for her family. In short, Lula never stops.

Later at afternoon tea with her friends they each share their news after drawing cards to see who gets to share their news first. They started drawing cards when their lives became busier and they had to make their meetings weekly.

Lula shares the news that her eldest daughter Brooke is coming home for the 4th of July after not having been home for years and Lula is going to throw a party for her. Brooke is clearly her favourite of her two daughters despite Lizbet being the one that chose to stay nearer to home.

Midge shares the news that she is engaged to Bennet, a man who has been married three times previously and has a reputation for being a bit of a rogue. Midge’s first marriage fell apart when they failed to conceive a child and he cheated on her and Midge understandably has a few concerns over marrying Bennet.

Georgia is the wife of a doctor and has served on the board of numerous charities over the years and now she is about to start a job for the first time in her life. This means that they will have to cancel their Tuesday tea time.

There was not one part of this book that I didn’t like.
