If this was not a Book Club selection for OctoberI would have stopped reading after the first chapter I am being a snob when I say that this book is written for readers who like something simple and not complex Trying to be kind Even the bad books offer something for discussion I believe that this one will lead to discussions of victims of domestic abuse All will discuss friendships How do we assist a friend who is clearly being abused

The women of a small town’s bird watching society secretly plan to “eliminate” the husband of one of their members in this new novel a modern spin on the classic film Arsenic and Old Lace written by the beloved author of Sophie and the Rising Sun In a story replete with coconut cake grits and poisoned turtle stew it’s easy to see why Augusta Trobaugh has been heralded as having “a voice from and for the South as complex and resonant as the region itself”Anne. I thought this was a charming little story Sort of a combination of Golden Girls meet Agatha Christie combined with elements of Arsenic and Old Lace The main characters of the story are Beulah Sweet Wildwood and Zion four genteel southern ladies in Tea Olive Georgia who attend church together and like to go birdwatching Their old friend Love Divine has died and left them a parcel of land for their bird watching activities She's also left money to the local library and the Homework Helpers Group that helps local kids with their school work The only caveat is if the club breaks up the town obtains the land to do what they want with itWe learn how the ladies met meet their families and hear about their careers None have children and a couple have never been married They follow traditions where every girl is named for a church hymn and they love their small town lives in Tea Olive Soon retired New York Judge Hyson Breed moves to Tea Olive where he courts Sweet They marry and he immediately gains control of her family estate which he plans to develop In just a short time Hyson isolates Sweet from her friends Beulah and Zion worry about Sweet and when they sneak over to see her they notice bruises and other signs of abuse Once they realize Hyson is planning to exploit the town they decide the only way to save Tea Olive and Sweet would be his death This book was witty and well written The events and location of the story were interesting and I loved the way it showed the ladies' friendship The ending was really wonderful It's not a story for anyone wanting a complex plot but is of a cozy type of novel
