  • Entertaining book

    This was an entertaining, well-written book. It was a sweet, magical story focused on community, friendship and connection. It held my attention and I didn't want to put it down. I enjoyed this book and look forward to reading more books by this author.

  • This is such a good story.

    This is such a good story. There are several things going on, but all connected. Ava is working so hard to get her tea shop opened, but she has a secret that she put into a box that is constantly reminding her of her mistake. It is thumping constantly at her like the Jumanji game. When she and Sara have a big fight, people in town start taking sides and Ava is loosing business. Kristen works for Ava and when her mother dies, Kristen has so much sadness and anger, she doesn't know what to do. Her grandmother, that she barely knows, comes to town and expects Kristen to be happy to move to another town and leave everything and everyone she loves behind. So, Kristen decides to find the father her mother never told her about, and hope he will want her to stay with him in Dove Pond. Will Ava and Sarah reconcile? Will Kristen find her father? Kristen's grandmother is having conversations with her dead daughter about how to help Kristen. Will she listen or do what she always does, not listen and do as she pleases?

  • Love the Dove Pond series

    A Cup of Silver Linings is the second book in the Dove Pond series. Ava Dove is trying to get things in order to open her new tearoom as part of the Ava Dove Landscaping and Specialty Teas business. But the death of a friend and family secrets are not helping things along. This is a wonderful book of family, forgiveness, and friendship with a touch of magic. I did not want to put this book down. I love the Dove Pond books and look forward to the next book in this series. Thanks to the author Karen Hawkins, publisher Gallery Books, and NetGalley for providing a copy of this book for a honest review.

  • A good beach read!

    A Cup of Silver Linings by Karen Hawkins is the 2nd book in The Dove Pond NC series. While it can be read as a standalone, I believe it is better to read The Book Charmer first. It will give you a better understanding of the Dove family and their gifts as well as the town. I was not aware that A Cup of Silver Linings was part of a series when I requested it. Dove Pond, North Carolina is a town filled with quirky characters that includes Ava Dove, the sixth Dove sister. Ava is getting ready to open her tea shop when something goes wrong with three of her custom tea blends. Ava needs to discover what happened and get it corrected before her reputation is ruined. In addition, Ava’s teenage employee, Kristen Foster is dealing with the loss of her mother. Her grandmother, Ellen has become her guardian and she wants to take Kristen to Raleigh with her. Kristen comes up with a plan to stay in Dove Pond. A Cup of Silver Linings had several storylines with alternating points-of-view. It can be hard to keep track of the various characters and their stories. It does not allow any one of the stories to become fully fleshed out. Plus, new secondary characters are constantly being introduced. I sometimes felt there were details that were not needed. They did not add to the story. It felt like something just added in as filler. I thought the author created a charming small town with quaint, quirky characters. This book series would make a great television program on Hallmark. I liked the paranormal element. It is interesting how each Dove sister has a different gift. I wish A Cup of Silver Linings had focused on Ava and her gift. I think it would have allowed the author to fully develop her character and her talent. I did like how everything came together at the end. Despite my comments, A Cup of Silver Linings is a sweet story. It is a good summertime book (perfect for reading by the pool or at the beach). A Cup of Silver Linings is a charming, heartwarming tale with troublesome teas, an imperturbable grandmother, an impatient package, a tearful teen, and a shocked sister.
