Gossip by Beth Gutcheon Review & Giveaway

Loviah “Lovie” French owns a small, high-end dress shop on Manhattan’s Upper East Side. Renowned for her taste, charm, and discretion, Lovie is the one to whom certain women turn when they need “just the thing” for key life events: baptisms and balls, weddings and funerals. Among those who depend on Lovie’s sage advice are her two best friends since boarding school days: Dinah Wainwright and Avis Metcalf. Despite the love they share for their mutual friend, there has always been a chilly gulf between Dinah and Avis, the result of a perceived slight from decades ago that has unimaginably tragic echoes many years later.

What a great novel! Lovie is the storyteller, a woman who owns a small dress shop in Manhattan and holds dearly onto all the dark secrets of her clients.  Two of them, Dinah and Avis, she went to boarding school with and they've stayed friends though-out the years.  But now Dinah and Avis's children are in a relationship and hopefully all those secrets - stay secrets, or not only will their relationship be in trouble, but the three woman's friendships and those that it affects - much like a domino effect.

From their time in the boarding school, through marriages, divorces, child rearing and more, Gossip spans many years of the three friends but is all told in Lovie's voice.  If you love reading about the trials and tribulations of friendship, along with the deep bond that women can create, as well as reading about gossip, then you'll love Beth Gutcheon's newest endeavor.  The story builds and builds until a stellar climax that has me thinking days after I have closed the book.  A great beach read this summer!

The old grey donkey, Eeyore stood by himself in a thistly corner of the Forest, his front feet well apart, his head on one side, and thought about things. Sometimes he thought sadly to himself, "Why?" and sometimes he thought, "Wherefore?" and sometimes he thought, "Inasmuch as which?" and sometimes he didn't quite know what he was thinking about.
