A Slice Of Friends (Book Review: Friendship Cake, Lynne Hinton)

Lynne Hinton's "Friendship Cake" is inoffensive, and sappy.  There's nothing wrong with that, for sure. It was a little too soap opera-ish for me - there were non stop tragedies and crying scenes that seems excessive, when I look back at it. Could this be a Southern gothic thing that I am not getting? Even though there is an undercurrent of a religious theme, it explores a (tame) same sex relationship, which I kind of appreciated. I didn't dislike the book, but I wasn't jumping and up and down when I was reading it either. I can't say I will be seeking the rest of the books in the series, though,
