A Southern Sewing Circle
review 1: Wow, after finishing this today I think the character Victoria must be losing her hearing because there's WAY TOO MANY question marks throughout the story. So, I'll ask one of my own: Why does she have to REPEAT almost EVERYTHING that others say? Talk about awkward. Once or twice is fine, but all through the story is so disruptive and frankly got really annoying. This made the book so hard to enjoy, I don't remember this quirk in the prior stories. All in all a really fast read, the killer is predictable, but I did enjoy the past books and most of the characters grew on me. I have to agree with other's comments that in this one Milo and Victoria were both so weak and gutless, I really hope that improves as well.
review 2: South Carolina's Sweet Briar Ladies S
... moreociety sewing circle is one tight-knit group~~if you cross one lady, you cross them all. But when one of the town's most insufferable moms is murdered, the group finds itself fraying at the seams.Ever since she joined the circle, librarian Tori Sinclair has known she'd do anything for her new friends~~including throw a birthday party for a fellow sewer's daughter. While the party is a hit, self-important pageant mom Ashley Lawson and her rude attitude leave the ladies wanting to permanently shut her high-maintenance mouth. But when Ashley turns up dead, the sewing circle is shocked~~because as much as they wanted to strangle her, none of them actually would.With the town aware that the entire club made threats against Mrs. Lawson, Tori and the girls need to band together to figure out who really murdered the monster mom, before the finger-pointing and gossip cause their friendship to unravel...My Thoughts...This is the first book I've read by this author, Elizabeth Lynn Casey. It is another sweet and charming southern cozy mystery. There's a lot of fun, folksy characters, and a lot of southern folksy sayings throughout the story. It was a "Southern Sewing Circle" series book, not sure what number in the series, but it was a stand-alone book as well. It was an okay read, but just a bit wordy in this old readers opinion. But all-in-all a very enjoyable story. I enjoyed it enough to award it 3 sweet and charming stars. This book is a part of my personal library. less
