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.

That went well, Georgia thought to herself as she turned off the oven and sank down to the nearest stool at the island. She should’ve texted him about dinner. He led a busy life. His job didn’t end when he left the operating room. He was responsible for his patients’ recovery as well. They counted on him to adjust their meds, order any necessary tests, and release them from the hospital when they were well enough to go home. She shouldn’t expect him to drop everything because she wanted to have a discussion about their plans for the Fourth of July.

Langdon’s phone vibrated on the counter. Georgia glanced at the screen and saw that the text was from a Tina Olson. She couldn’t recall ever having met a Tina Olson. She picked up the phone and read the text: “What’s taking you so long? I rented our normal room.” She clicked on the text bubble, but the phone prevented her from reading the rest of the message without Langdon’s password. This Tina Olson person was waiting for him in their normal room. A hotel room, obviously. Normal implying they rented it on a routine basis. Her body broke out in a cold sweat and she suddenly found it difficult to breathe. Her husband was having an affair. Bastard.

As she held the phone in her hand, an image of a woman with sharp pointy features popped onto the screen signaling an incoming call. Tina’s red-painted lips were pursed in a seductive kiss meant for the photographer. Langford.

Georgia picked up the call, saying “Georgia Murdaugh, here. Who may I tell my husband is calling?”

She heard a click and the line went dead. She held the phone in a death grip, imagining her fingers wrapped around her husband’s neck instead of the phone.

  1. Sweet Tea Tuesdays sounds amazing. I read the short excerpts and I am hooked. I can tell this is going to be a “page turning up-all-night read.” I am a Southern girl myself and we always seem to have secrets. Ashley’s writing reminds me of Pat Conroy, but in my opinion, she has surpassed him. I would love to see her books made into movies. They would be blockbusters.

  2. The book cover for Sweet Tea Tuesdays is lovely with the gorgeous hydrangeas on the front. I love the blurb, it would be wonderful to have friends to hang with for that many years. Now I wonder what news could ruin a friendship gathering of twenty-six years. Reading the excerpt, I can’t imagine how devastating it would be to find out your husband has been cheating on. Sweet Tea Tuesdays sounds like a truly awesome read & I am looking forward to this one. Thanks for the review!
