Tiffany Wright never planned to become a torch singer, much less a pregnant and single one. It was only with the help of her Fat Fridays luncheon group of strong women—counting their blessings, not their calories—that she found the courage to leave Beau, her once wonderful husband destroyed by drug addiction.

Now those same women are her supportive audience at Sassy Saturdays, the enchanting evenings when Tiffany belts out ballads at a local club. Things heat up when Kevin Bascombe—tall, dark, and exceedingly handsome—moves in next door…and turns out to be both Beau’s new business partner and Tiffany’s literal savior in a storm. And when tragedy strikes, Tiffany and Kevin find themselves on the same side of a legal battle, while Tiffany must summon the strength to stand up to her domineering in-laws or risk an unbearable loss.

With blue martinis as their talisman, the Sassy Saturdays friends, each facing familial challenges of her own, unite in support, finding hope in friendship, sisterhood, laughter—and colorful cocktails.

Sassy Saturdays continues where Fat Fridays left off (See my review here).  The story still revolves around the 5 women from the previous book, with the addition of a new member: Lynetta.

The formula is still the same. You get to see inside the lives of each of these characters. Sukie, is still the leader of the pack, who provides the “mom” feel for them all. Life continues and new problems arise. Carol Anne, is still irresponsible and annoying. Why am I not surprised at how things ended up with her? I want to feel sorry, but seriously she has a child’s mentality.

Very naive:

‘If a man wanted you to meet his mother, he was sincere. “I’ve learned that I can’t trust a man who doesn’t have family. I got stung once; I don’t want to get hurt again.”’

MAJOR EYEROLL! Honey, you just met this man and you don’t know a THING about him. *sigh*

Lynetta brings a fresh presence to the group, but her story isn’t as drama-esk. She just has a couple of teenage sons, one of whom gets into some typical teenage shenanigans. Also, her love life provides some contention between herself and her sons. Trust me, it is not as serious as her counterparts’ stories.

However, as Fat Fridays focused on Sukie, Sassy Saturdays seemed to revolve around Tiffany. She has somewhat become a lounge singer and the girls meet up every Saturday for martinis. Her issues regarding her husband’s family escalate.

All in all, it satisfied some of my curiosity that book 1 presented. I’m sure it will continue on to the next book.

A little note…

This series must be read in order to fully understand what’s going on.

It sounds fun how you get a glimpse into all 5 of those characters their lives. That quote does make that character sound a bit judging and like she jumps to conclusion. Lynette sounds like a nice fresh addition. And I am glad you mainly enjoyed this one.

A character making snap (and often false) judgments about another character is pretty annoying. I mean, I get that it’s realistic since it certainly happens IRL but it doesn’t make it any less annoying. Still, it sounds like a pretty enjoyable entry to the series.

Can’t trust a man who doesn’t have family? Wha?! That’s ridiculous. Not his fault he doesn’t have one. How strange!
