Ann Pearlman's irresistible novel provides the perfect ingredients for a fun and touching read about a group of women who gather each year to share a journey of friendship, hope, heartbreak--and recipes.

Every year at Christmastime, Marnie and her closest girlfriends mark their calendars for the cookie exchange. Everyone has to bring a batch of homemade cookies and a bottle of wine, but this year, it's their stories that are especially important--the passion and hopefulness of new romance, the betrayal and disillusionment some relationships bring, the joys and fears of motherhood, the stress of financial troubles. On this evening, at least, the sisterly love they have for one another rises above it all. Celebrating courage and joy in spite of hard times and honoring the importance of women's friendships as well as the embracing bonds of community, Ann Pearlman's delightful novel speaks to us all.

Another one of those Christian Republican American book for women. The large cast of characters made it difficult at times to follow/remember who was who and how they were related. The well-used formula of including recipes is a sure-fire way to please its female readership; typically American recipes with LOADS of sugar! Still, I give it 1 1/2 star because it managed to entertain me.

Wow, am I *ever* enjoying this book! I picked it up thinking it'd be some light 'chic lit'-esque kind of read and am I ever pleasantly surprised!

The writing and weaving of the stories is well crafted, and the concept is great.

(not that chic lit is *not* any of the above mind you...)

I wonder how it'll all end...?
