I ordered this book thinking it would be a sweet Christmas story of friends. I was disappointed with the foul language and immorality. I was glancing through it and did not even read it. Big disappointment.
This was such a fun light hearted book to read. Didn't want to stop and put it down!
I bought this book at the dollar store thinking it was a Christmas cookie cookbook. I was happy to find I had bought a novel and even happier when I started reading it and discovered it was a good story. There are some sad parts, but that is how life is. The history of common ingredients was interesting, the stories of each member of the cookie club rich and very real. I was already planning on planning a cookie exchange before I bought this book and now I have some really good ideas. If you are interested in cooking and stories about strong, but flawed and realistic women, you will enjoy this book. I can't wait to try some of the recipes.
I found this book intriguing. I have a group of lady friends who act as support and encouragement for each other much as these ladies did. I enjoyed the format of a cookie exchange because I make several hundred cookies each Christmas myself.
I would recommend this for anyone who enjoys reading about the strengths, sharing, and encouragement of women and how they support each other throughout life's trials and successes.
This book makes me want to start my own Christmas Cookie Club. Enjoyed it very much.
