Secrets Over Sweet Tea by Denise Hildreth Jones ~ Review

Secrets Over Sweet TeaMy Review: A mixture of Southern Charm, real-life tough problems and emotional struggles.

Grace and Zach are two very different people, both struggling in their marriages and everyday life, trying to keep up appearances.
But Scarlett Jo Newberry, the boisterous pastor's wife, knows just what Grace and Zach are missing, and serves as a guide to helping them break free of self imposed stereo-types.

It took a while for me to get used to how often the point-of-views changed, but after I did I settled into the pace of this sweet Southern read, that dealt with hard issues. We live in a day and age where everything has to "look perfect" no matter how emotionally or spiritually starved we are, everything has to look good. We can say that we don't care what they think, but saying it is much easier than actually believing it. And I think that describes the message this book promotes.

Scarlett Jo in her own way is one of the bravest fictional characters, and I loved how she helped Grace and Zach find their way. There was plenty of humor most of which came by way of Scarlett Jo and her wonderful family.

Overall, this was Southern fiction book that moved at a realistic pace, where you can see all the little things and how they added up. I liked how this book balanced the humor with tough emotional struggles and heartwarming elements.

I received this book from the author's publicist in exchange for an honest review. Thank you!
