Publisher's Summary

Tiffany Wright never planned to become a torch singer, much less a pregnant and single one. It was only with the help of her Fat Fridays luncheon group of strong women - counting their blessings, not their calories - that she found the courage to leave Beau, her once wonderful husband destroyed by drug addiction.

Now those same women are her supportive audience at Sassy Saturdays, the enchanting evenings when Tiffany belts out ballads at a local club. Things heat up when Kevin Bascombe - tall, dark, and exceedingly handsome - moves in next door...and turns out to be both Beau's new business partner and Tiffany's literal savior in a storm. And when tragedy strikes, Tiffany and Kevin find themselves on the same side of a legal battle, while Tiffany must summon the strength to stand up to her domineering in-laws or risk an unbearable loss.

With blue martinis as their talisman, the Sassy Saturdays friends, each facing familial challenges of her own, unite in support, finding hope in friendship, sisterhood, laughter - and colorful cocktails.

Narrator is ok, but I think it would’ve been better with a different one.

I like the story concept.
But Carol Ann is too needy and her desire for a man with money and looks borders obsessive and makes her sound more like like a gold digger and she loses sympathy. Her naïveté edges on stupidity which again loses my sympathy for the character and affects the story.

Enjoyed the first one.

I hate giving a bad review, but I enjoyed the first book so much that I was disappointed by the second book. Things came together well, yet at the same time, to many trite statements made me roll my eyes. Sure, they are all great friends, but quit telling me. I also wasn't too keen on the end. Actually, if there was a third book, I would read it only because it might balance things out. Narration was excellent.

Not my cup of tea

I had read so much about this and was so disappointed from the beginning.

Not a fan of the narrator ...her women just sounded dumb and lost and the writer didn’t help.

My new best friends

I have listened to all three books in this series and am sad they are leaving me. While I loved Sukie I didn't understand why she was treated so badly when she caught her husband in her bed with another woman, said woman claimed she was pregnant and her husband left her. It just didn't make sense to me. Also, I didn't understand (and it was never explained) why the library board member (Edith) disliked her so much and made her life as the temporary children's librarian so uncomfortable.
Other than these areas, I loved these books. How the women related and stepped up for each other was heart warming. I really will miss them.
The narrator certainly helped to bring the characters/stories to life. I have become a big fan of audible books.

True friendship!

This is 2nd book in series that I have listened to. Can't wait for the 3rd book.
I want to see what happens next in these friends lives.
Judith Keim has written a wonderful series on women and friendship.
Joyce Bean has a clear and pleasant voice.
I highly recommend this book.
