The Red Hat Club (Red Hat Club, Bk 1) (Audio CD) (Abridged)
The Red Hat Club - Red Hat Club, Bk 1 - Audio CD - Abridged Author:Haywood Smith, Cynthia Darlow (Narrator) Meet Georgia, SuSu, Teeny, Diane, and Linda--five women who've been best friends through thirty years since high school. Whenever they get the chance, they don their red hats and purple outfits for a delicious monthly serving of racy jokes, iced tea and chicken salad, baskets of sweet rolls, the latest Buckhead gossip, and--most of all--live... more »ly support and caring through the ups and downs of their lives.
When Diane discovers her banker husband has a condo (with mistress) that he bought with their retirement funds, the Red Hats swing into action and plot to hang him with his own rope in a story that 1 serves up laughter, elegant revenge, high school memories, long-lost loves, a suburban dominatrix, plenty of white wine and junk food, and most of all, the power of friendship.
I am neither middle aged nor southern, so I'm not sure why I thought I would enjoy this one. I loved Divine Secrets of the Ya Ya Sisterhood And I had hoped this would be similarly charming. I was really dissapointed. It was at worst gossipy, snobbish, moralistic, and predictable...at best it was a sappy tale of lifelong friendship. I did listen to the entire thing hoping something scandalous would happen eventually...so it must have some redeeming qualities. My mother would love it, but it was not for me!
I just finished this book and I thought it was so cute. It was a little mean, but very funny and definitely entertaining and worth the listen. I really loved this book! The reader made the book very entertaining. She sounds to me a lot like Rue McClannahan and it was fun. Listen to it! Deshirl
