Ok first off since this does not have a description about what the book is all about I'll write up here what the back of the book says:

Meet the Potluck Club-Six women who gather each month to share their insatiable appetitie for good friends, great food, and a pinch of prayer. Their seemingly unlikely friendship brings a little spice to life in Summit View, Colorado. But when they send up enough misinformed prayers to bring down a church, things get interesting....

Evie's niece arrives with a broken heart and a big surprise.
Lisa Leann tries to take over.
Goldie's marriage turns sour.
Donna stews over a strange encounter.
Lizzie's librarian eyes are on the lookout for trouble.
Vonnie must come to terms with a secret she's kept hidden from her best friends.

But who knows what life will serve as the Potluck Club discovers that friendship is no piece of cake and that a little dash of grace, like salt, goes a long way.

Ok now for my review.

The start of the book is a little difficult as each chapter deals with a character, so you have to try and remember the characters and their issues. But the story picks up pace rapidly and you start to remember each person (and the back of the book is a big help) You honestly see these ladies as teenagers instead of older women. They do deal with a lot of issues, especially cancer in this book. There are recipes in the back of the book that you can cook, but I didn't try any of them. This is a wonderful read, and is the first book in the series. I can't wait to read the others!

Six women gather monthly for friendship, food, and a little prayer. Humor and sadness are found in this book. Not at all preachy.

I really enjoyed this book. It is Christian fiction centering abour six women in a prayer chain/potluck club. The story is well written and I enjoy the perspective of the small town paper reporter Clay Whitefield. It is a building of relationships and solving real life problems. I'm looking forward to the 2nd in the series.

This is great fun. Each chapter is told from the perspective of a different member of the group. You really get to know each gal very well and that just adds to the fun of this funky prayer group.
