Sweet Tea Tuesdays by Ashley Farley ~ My Thoughts


Sweet Tea Tuesdays

Sweet Tea Tuesdays by Ashley Farley
Paperback and ebook, 306 pages
Expected publication: May 3rd 2017

Three friends met every Tuesday for twenty-six years. And then they stopped. 

From the author of the bestselling Sweeney Sisters Series comes a novel of friendship, family and hope....

When new next-door neighbors Georgia, Midge, and Lula first assembled on Georgia’s porch in Charleston for sweet tea, they couldn’t have known their gathering was the beginning of a treasured tradition. For twenty-six years they have met on Tuesdays at four o’clock, watching the seasons change and their children grow up, supporting each other in good times and in bad. With their ambitions as different as their personalities, these best friends anticipate many more years of tea time.

And then, one Tuesday, Georgia shares news that brings their long-standing social hour to an abrupt halt. And that’s only the beginning as unraveling secrets threaten to alter their friendship forever.


(I love to note the first lines of the books I'm reading. First lines can really grab a reader's attention and I love seeing where the author takes the reader after their first lines.)

First line—"The thermostat on Lula's insides was dialed up to broil. Only this time it had nothing to do with hot flashes." 

Ashley Farley is one of my must read authors. I just love everything she writes. Sweet Tea Tuesdays is a wonderful, emotional story of three women who have been meeting once a week for years, enjoying sweet tea and friendship. The three have such love for each other and share a strong support system that they all have come to count on. 

Then things start to fall apart. Tuesdays don't work any more and their relationships suffer for it. We watch as the women struggle with their lives and as they face both emotional and physical challenges. 

I loved all of these women and wished I could have been sitting on their porches, sharing some tea and companionship. Ashley has written another great story of strong, caring, devoted women, a story that just carried me away for a delightful weekend of reading.
