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.

How long does it take you to write a book? After publishing eight novels, I’ve developed a process that enables me to write a book from beginning to end in about four months. Writing has gotten easier over time, as anything will when you practice a lot. But I rarely take a day off. As soon as I finish a manuscript, I start another.

What would you say is your most interesting writing quirk?The third draft is usually the final draft of a manuscript before I send it over to my editor. For this draft, I have my computer read the text back to me. I’m in the middle of that process now with my latest project, Magnolia Nights. You’d be surprised at the things that read well on paper but don’t sound quite write. For Mac users, click to set the commands.

Where do you get your information or ideas for your books?I don’t have a simple answer to this question. I’m inspired by many different things—places, people, relationships. I create a character, toss them into a situation, and let them show me the way. I never know how a book will end when I write the first chapter.

What was one of the most surprising things you learned in creating your book?
(I’m not sure if you’re asking about doing research for my subjects of for publishing in general. I’m going to answer for the former.)

What do you think makes a good story?Well-written and well- edited with fast-paced plots and relatable characters. I don’t have much spare time for reading. When I pick up a novel, I want instant gratification. I want to be hooked from page one and intrigued until the end. Not every reader or writer feels the same way, which is why we’re fortunate to have such a wide range of affordable choices on the market today.

What would you like my readers to know?I write not because I need to earn the bacon butbecause I truly love entertaining my readers. My writing career is my mid-life crisis, this hobby turned profession that brings me great joy. Never, ever give up on your dreams. Talent is overrated. Success is all about commitment.
