I ordered this on a whim -- and was glad I did! A wonderful page-turner, blending decades-long friendships and a shocking killing. Very smartly written, with wonderful, complex characters, suspenseful, and intriguing. Definitely recommended!

I loved this book. This is one of those books where you really care about the characters and the beginning, middle and end of the storyline aren't that important. It's just interesting to be involved with these characters for a little while and see into their lives. I also liked that you get background on each of them from their own perspective so that you understand their motivations.

I must be getting old or I'm just plain forgetful. I read this book a couple of years ago and found it to be very delightful. A fact that came rushing back to me when I finished the second chapter.

It is the story of three woman and how very different their lives are and how those lives are intertwined. Through their love and respect for each other and their three musketeer attitude. I remember initially picking this book up because it reminded me of three dear elderly ladies at church and their exploits through the years. I enjoy reading about friendships and so, I found this book very much to my likening. There were funny moments, serious moments and down right sad moments in this book. Overall a delightful read and an enjoyable book. Hopefully a book that will stay with you for a long time.

This one took me awhile to "get into" but then I just couldn't put it down! The lives of the Miss Margarets touch so many people in this small town; each has a fascinating history and together they influence so many lives.

Wish I could give it MORE than 5 stars! The 3 Miss Margarets are 3 elderly Southern friends who share a horrible secret, a secret that has ruled (and ruined?) their lives and the lives of many others who are unknowingly touched by deeds of the past. Difficult to put down. Switches between the present and the past in flashbacks but not difficult to follow. "To know all is to understand all." Amen to that!

is an irresistible, page-turning exploration of the past and the many ways it exerts a hold on the present. These ladies make you want to go sit in their porch with them and be included in their lives. Also,...the secret they poses makes this book a great read, and one that is hard to put down once you start reading. I loved it.
