The new novel by the celebrated author of The Sunday Wife chronicles the lives of a tight-knit group of lifelong friends. None of the Same Sweet Girls are really girls anymore and none of them have actually ever been that sweet. But this spirited group of Southern women, who have been holding biannual reunions ever since they were together in college, are nothing short of compelling. There's Julia Stovall, the First Lady of Alabama, who, despite her public veneer, is a down-to-earth gal who only wants to know who her husband is sneaking out with late at night. There's Lanier Sanders, whose husband won custody of their children after he found out about her fling with a colleague. Then there's Astor Deveaux, a former Broadway showgirl who simply can't keep her flirtations in check. And Corinne Cooper, whose incredible story comes to light as the novel unfolds.… (mehr)

I liked how the women dealt with some issues such as Corrine, her love of gourds and what to do about her health and relationships, Julia and her aspects of her marriage to Joe Ed, and that they were all willing to drop everything to be with each other. Enjoyed hearing about their get-to-gethers - that part was hilarious especially the rituals on the pier as they crowned the queen each year. ( )

This was touted as an uplifting story about friendship. It was a bleak, depressing ramble through the lives of some extremely unfortunate (or in one case completely narcissistic) women. Life's a sh*tshow sometimes; don't read this if you're looking for any sort of escape. ( )

A hokey novel of six Southern life-long friends. I found it mediocre and maudlin. ( )

Wonderfully told story of Southern women and their friendships. ( )

“The Same Sweet Girls” is a group of women who graduated together from college in the deep South. Each summer they gather together to crown one of them the queen for the next year. The queen is enthroned on a decorated commode with a robe of purple and gold and a scepter made from a baton with cotton bolls, sugar cubes and streamers erupting from the top. As the women gather they remember and add to the history of the SSGs.

But, their lives are not as simple as they appear on the surface.

Julia, the First Lady of Alabama has a checkered past and has been unable to love her husband because of her deep love her mother stomped on. She hides it with perfection and poise and distance. Corrine, the self-claimed weirdo, has the most destructive and damaged past. As a young woman she began seeing a therapist, a man who stole her life. Miles took over every part of her life and refused to let go - abusing her physically and psychologically. Then there is Lanier, the self-destructive woman. Lanier had fled from her husband after a nasty affair. Byrd, the bible-thumping mother figure; Aster, the exotic, self-absorbed, husbandizing, dancer and Rosanelle, alumni coed-wannabe complete the group.
Corrine is often the story teller - mostly because it is a tale about the end of her life... We learn how Corrine pulls away from Miles and reunites with her son, Culley and her art - gourd art- the story of the SSGs and the way women hold one another together.

I really enjoyed this story. I think I liked Angry Housewives a bit better though. This sometimes got a bit campy with Southern ‘charm.’ But - it’s a great read!! ( )
