The Potluck Club Series


About the Series — In the small Colorado town of Summit View, a surprising multi-generational mix of women from Grace Church meet once a week to pass a hot dish and to pray. But the Potluck Club, as they call themselves, is a recipe for disaster when they send up enough misinformed prayers to bring down a church. And the funny thing: the more they pray, the more troubles seem to come their way. It isn’t until they invite God to the table that they discover friendship is the spice of life, and a little dash of grace, just like salt, goes a long way.

With charming, down-home characters, humor, poignancy, and a recipe in every chapter, The Potluck Club  and follow-up series, The Potluck Catering Club, will keep readers hungry for more.

“The Potluck Club is back and better than ever! While Evie and Vernon Vesey were on their honeymoon, Lisa Leann decided to capitalize on word of mouth, and The Potluck Catering Club was born. So how’s Evageline going to take the news?…..

I’m loving this new chapter in the history of the Potluck Club and I think you will as well. These are NOT whiny women…think Steel Magnolias and you’ll be a lot closer to the truth. Happy Reading! Deena.”
