My Losing Season
A good read
Pat Conroy's work is normally a little negative and down beat for me. However this book grabbed me by scruff of the neck and pulled me through it. It is authbiographal and because it is so well written,unlike many others I have read, it is utterly compelling. I really enjoyed this one. J. Robert Ewbank, author "John Wesley, Natural Man, and the 'Isms'"
The Junior League of Charleston
A true Charleston classic...
Charleston, SC has always been known for her gracious hospitality and her wonderful food. The women of Charleston have been entertaining for over 300 years, and Charleston Receipts by the Junior League of Charleston is celebrating its 59th year. Although I'm not sure why Charlestonians call receipes "receipts," I do know that this cookbook is a true classic. Charleston Receipts was ...
We Interrupt This Date
9 reviews, 2009
Delightful and fun
This is a wonderfully delightful book that will have you laughing and shaking your head yes, I can relate at every turn. You will recognize yourself and many of your friends in this book, and it just may make it possible for you to learn to say no to at least some of the people making demands on you and your time. Written with a lovely and true Southern voice and sensibility, WE INTERRUPT THIS ...
South of Broad
Nan A. Talese, 2009
Mr. Conroy's beautiful South
I don't expect to see my life or the lives of people I know reflected in novels by Pat Conroy. That alone is a reason I go to them faithfully when they come out. South of Broad is no exception. In his latest novel-- which I had to wait fourteen years for-- I found exactly what I hope to find whenever I turn Pat Conroy's pages. First, I found him writing about Charleston and his beloved ...
The English Breakfast Murder (A Tea Shop Mystery)
Product was shipped in a timely manner, and condition of the book was exactly as described. Thank you so much!
The House on Tradd Street
I LOVE THIS!!!!
I'm a fan of paranormal, (but believable, not too far out), romance, suspense and this one fills the bill!! Realtor, Melanie, loves that her professional success allows her a wonderful, free single life and can do anything she wants to. A past client she barely knew left her a huge old house in Charleston, South Carolina and all she had to do was live in it for a year. The mystery of Louisa's ...
Bethany House, 2010
Mixing of two genres perfectly
I was pleasantly surprised by the twisting together of genres by this duo. I have read many of Deanne's books and absolutely loved them, so I thought I would give this a try and see what I thought. I think I am beginning to fall into a love of mingling suspense with romance. I liked this book so much that I do believe I will have to try Mark's book. I would recommend Beguiled to all my friends. ...
Oolong Dead (A Tea Shop Mystery)
Theodosia Does it Again!
I just love the teashop mystery series by Laura Childs. I've been to that area of the country, bought a Sweetgrass basket from a roadside vendor lady, and breathed in the sumptuous fragrant air. Perhaps that's why I love them so. Who knows. What I do know is I find Laura Childs an authoress who thinks very much like I do and therefore I find her books very easy to read. I've already finished ...
Men and Dogs: A Novel
Little, Brown and Company, 2010
Perfect Summer Read
A lovely, moving, page-turner of a read. From the opening words ("Two days before Hannah's father disappeared...) to the wonderfully memorable last image of Hannah (I won't spoil it by even giving a hint), she is a woman you'll be rooting for despite - or perhaps because of - the mess she makes of it all. This story of one woman's quest to right the sinking boat that is her life is delightful!
Drums of Autumn
Can't fail with this read
Diana Gabaldon is in top form. Her books grab your heart and imagination from the start and never lets go. There is so much packed into the stories that you keep reading to find out what happens next. Then when you make it to the end you can start over and learn some great historic tidbits.
Waking Up in Charleston
Waking Up In Charleston
I got hooked on Sherryl Woods with Flamingo Diner and since look for everything she writes this was the conclusion of an older trilogy her most recent was Magnolia series just all about real people real life, one a person can sink into and forget who they are or where they are, for awhile...............
The Silver Needle Murder (A Tea Shop Mystery)
The Silver Needle Murder: A Tea Shop Mystery
Loved the book it reminded me of all the times I have been to Charleston and all the places I have seen there and loved.....I loved the receipes at the end cant wait to use them for my friends when they come to my home for Tea.
Moon Charleston and Savannah (Moon Handbooks)
Avalon Travel Publishing
An excellent guide to Savannah, where I visited for 3 days. (I can't judge the Charleston part, since I was there for less than a day, but I assume it was equally good.) This guide has good information on the sights, restaurants, etc. plus it gives a good feeling for the culture and atmosphere of Savannah. It is easy to use. It provided information that I wouldn't have known otherwise -- about ...
A great read on of Jakes best books
I am a fan of John Jakes after I read the Kent family books and Savanah and seeing all the North and South movies so I had to read this book. It was enjoyable from start to the great shocking ending. The book works in so many levels the charactors are great from every generation, the civil war part is great and of corse the history is great. At times the story is like a soap but it's good but ...
The Jasmine Moon Murder (A Tea Shop Mystery)
seriously i love this series the herione and her tea shop and enjoyed every one of these books. they did make me start getting into different kinds of teas as i read them. couldnt recommend them more!
Frommer's Portable Charleston
Guide to Charleston
I used one of Frommer's guides to Savannah and had a fabulous trip there. The same maps and reviews of hotels, restaurants, and sights to see are included in this guide. It also includes a bit of history and some travel tips. Great guides to make first time visits fun. I may buy one of local cities to see what might be interesting to see. Highly advised.
Chicago Review Press
How did I grow up in South Carolina and not know about this book!
This is a fantastic book that describes, in detail, what it must have been like to live as a woman in Charleston during the Revolutionary War. Many others here have provided plot synopses, so I wont be too redundant. Having majored in History in college, I do remember thinking at one point during my reading "Why does she have food? The soldiers would have taken that to supply the army". Next ...
Very Charleston: A Celebration of History, Culture, and Lowcountry Charm
Diana Hollingsworth Gessler
I saw this book while I was in Charleston visiting and upon returning obtained a copy. I used it to document where I went and plan out my next visit. Full of facts, and things of interest it will direct you to places you might not normally think to visit. Excellent if planning to travle there, and in fact I tured the book into a sort of scrapbook... putting my pictures in it, souveiners, ticket ...
My First Robert Whitlow Novel
I recently read The List again for the second time after years have passed since the first reading. Robert has a unique talent of being able to connect to his readers in a way that the pages of the book come alive in more of a photo-graphic rendering than just the printed word should be able to do. I value his underlying desire to express Christian values in his novels. I have started to re-read ...
Frommer's The Carolinas and Georgia (Frommer's Complete)
