I got this book for free on my Kindle.
That's the only reason I read it.
Why I finished it is anyone's guess.
The story of a group of catty women who meet once a month was about as interesting as watching music videos of Cambodia. (And I know. I've done that. For four hours. On a bus.)
The women are all shocked and dismayed that there's a young woman who became pregnant before she was married.
The whole town is embarrassed and wants little, if anything, to do with her. She's the niece of the founding member of the potluck club.
There's the town reporter who basically spies on the women of the club, calling it research.
Then there's the Texas transplant whose relationship isn't working out as great as she hoped, and here's a shocker - it's all because the two of the can't communicate.
