    A walk down memory lane

    It's 1934 in the small town of Darling, Alabama and economically things are starting to look a bit better. The Darling Dahlias Garden Club members have a strong sense of community and support for each other and work hard for their town. But some things have gone wrong that may not be easy to fix: the Lucky Four Clovers may have to drop out of the Dixie Regional Barbershop Competition, the telephone system and some businesses in Darling are in dire need of repairs and the limited partner who refuses to chip in any money is missing. The Darling Dahlias and the Unlucky Clover is the seventh book in the Darling Dahlias series, but the first one I have read. Having read any or all of those books prior to this one would have given me some insight into and backstory on some of the main characters but this story is complete as a stand-alone. The characters and the setting are described in sufficient detail that you don't feel you have missed any significant plot points. The Dahlias are strong women with multiple roles in their lives. There are detailed descriptions of the time and the setting and the food and life in general, from telephones to shopping to dating to making moonshine. It's a trip down memory lane, a glimpse into a world much different - maybe simpler, maybe not - than today's world of fast cars and fast food and social media all around us. For those that have read previous books in the series I imagine this story moved the lives of the main characters along, and the ending left things open to anticipate the next book. Thanks for NetGalley for providing an ARC of The Darling Dahlias and the Unlucky Clover.
