Sweet Tea Tuesdays

May 3rd 2017

Three friends met every Tuesday for twenty-six years. And then they stopped.

From the author of the bestselling Sweeney Sisters Series comes a novel of friendship, family and hope….

When new next-door neighbors Georgia, Midge, and Lula first assembled on Georgia’s porch in Charleston for sweet tea, they couldn’t have known their gathering was the beginning of a treasured tradition. For twenty-six years they have met on Tuesdays at four o’clock, watching the seasons change and their children grow up, supporting each other in good times and in bad. With their ambitions as different as their personalities, these best friends anticipate many more years of tea time. And then, one Tuesday, Georgia shares news that brings their long-standing social hour to an abrupt halt. And that’s only the beginning as unraveling secrets threaten to alter their friendship forever.

Excerpt:

Standing at her kitchen window, Georgia watched Lula and her precious daughter poke around in the garden. Her own sons rarely came home for a visit. She had to travel to Boston in order to see them. During her last trip over Thanksgiving, they had bounced her back and forth like a basketball. Both had followed in their father’s footsteps. Richard was a cardiologist and Martin a resident at Mass General. Neither had time for her and made it apparent her presence was a hindrance.

Georgia glanced at the clock on the stove. Four o’clock seemed awfully early for a drink, but she desperately needed something to calm her nerves. She filled a stemless goblet with pinot noir, and took the glass and the bottle into her library. She closed the plantation shutters and turned on the gas logs in the fireplace. She kept the thermostat set on sixty-eight degrees. Damn hot flashes. She should’ve been done with them years ago. Her obstetrician warned her that some women never got over them. The heat and humidity of the summer months only made matters worse. For an hour, maybe two, she would pretend like it was a brisk fall afternoon. She curled up on the leather sofa and spread a cashmere throw across her bare legs. She loved this room with its wood-paneled walls and oriental rug. She loved her whole house, truth be told.

Tradd Street was never meant to be their permanent home, but a stepping stone to a larger house on a more prestigious street. For years Georgia had dreamed of buying a fixer-upper. She’d dragged Langdon through countless properties, but none of them had been the right fit. At least not in his mind. She’d gotten her hopes up several times, only to be disappointed by his disinterest. He didn’t care where they lived. He was never home anyway.
