  • Emotional story of friends and loss

    This book has four wonderful female characters and I loved each of them. I was heartbroken for each of these women when I read about the time they spent as their parents caretakers and their subsequent deaths. This book brought so many emotions to the surface, forcing me to remember and relive my own father’s death by cancer. The characters were each so different yet they were able to become best friends. I was laughing with them and crying with them. I was cheering Amy on and she made me smile when she helped Olivia. The book was just a fabulous read and held a nice mixture of humour, sadness and romance that made it easy to read. A great chick lit book. Thanks to NetGalley, Melissa Storm and Kensington Books for the chance to read this lovely book.

  • Inspiritional

    Great circle of friends concept, although they have a sad common denominator, the story is emotionally well-balanced. It is uplifting and very encouraging even with real life insights. There's always more than one way to look at things and these ladies share another perspective that engages the thinking cap. Love the characters, they all have their individual quirks, very realistic with each having strengths and weakness yet very supportive and have big hearts. Enjoyed this one and I look forward to the next one. I received a free copy without obligation via NetGalley and am voluntarily reviewing.

  • A story of grieving, friendship and healing!

    The Sunday Potluck Club by Melissa Storm is a book of friendship, grief, love, unconditional love of animals and healing. The beginning of the story is a little depressing, but the tone soon changes. This is a story about people struggling with their grief which can be overwhelming. Amy, Bridget, and Hazel became friends after meeting in the hospital cafeteria. Each one had a parent going through chemotherapy. Nichole is the fourth member of their group and is fortunate that her father’s cancer is in remission. The four ladies meet each Sunday for a potluck meal and friendship therapy. Amy is having a hard time handling her grief over the loss of her mother. This is Amy’s third funeral in less than a year and it is wearing her down. She is hoping that by returning to work, her life will return to normal. Brigit just lost her mother and is handling her grief by keeping busy. Brigit refuses to talk about her grief. She becomes involved with the local animal shelter and becomes determined to make sure every dog is adopted by Valentine’s Day which is in two weeks. The three friends get recruited to help Brigit pull off this massive endeavor. Amy has a new girl in her second-grade class who has just moved to Anchorage with her father. The child just lost her mother to cancer. Amy notices the girl does not talk in class nor smile. Amy wants to help the little girl and contacts the child’s father. There is an instant spark of attraction between Amy and the father. But there is an issue that prevents them from moving forward. As Amy gets involved in activities, her grief lessens. We follow Amy and Bridgit as the deal with their grief in their own way. The Sunday Potluck Club is an uplifting story. I enjoyed the Valentine’s Day event at the animal shelter. It was a cute idea and a good way for people to interact with the animals (and help them find forever homes). I would have liked more details on the characters as well as Anchorage. It would have added more depth to the story. There are several good lessons in this story. That each person handles grief in their own way, you should be honest with your friends, and grief takes time. I liked that the ladies were close friends and willing to help each other out at a moment’s notice. People who are there for you no matter what are true friends. The animals sounded like such cuties. The author’s word imagery really brought them life. You can tell that Melissa Storm has animals of her own from her descriptions. The Sunday Potluck Club is an emotional novel with first class friends, agonizing grief, scrumptious potluck, furry friends, fun forts, and a cold climate.

  • loved it !!!

    Melissa Storm has written such charming and entertaining novel with “ The Sunday Potluck Club”. The relationships between old friendships and new are pushed with the decisions they are forced to face, whether they feel like they were ready or not. This close-knit group of friends had experienced so much loss yet they helped each other through the tough times. The dogs and cats in the story kept it entertaining too and I am definitely a sucker when it comes to animals. A couple of my favorite quotes: “It is not about what you have, it is about what you do.” “Dogs are better than dudes, they should put that on a poster.” I received a copy of this book from the publisher in exchange for fair and honest review.

    Thanks for your feedback!

  • Sweet story

    This was a sweet, well-written book. Amy's mother had cancer, and Amy has made friends with several other women she met who had a parent with cancer. They have formed the Sunday Potluck Club and lean on each other for support. They reach out to others to offer their help and friendship, and the group grows in ways they did not anticipate. I enjoyed this book and would read other books by this author.

    Thanks for your feedback!
