Book Description

Three old cronies from Sheboygan, Wisconsin: Jean, Yolanda—or Yoyo as she’s known—and Edie had a ridiculous idea. The adorable, if not eccentric women wanted to do a revival of The Chordettes, the famous quartet from the fifties. They wanted to go on a two-week whirlwind tour of Wisconsin’s supper club crowd. All they needed were a place to stay and a manager.

Eleanor Johansson had a great life. She owned a successful fitness club in her adopted city of Chicago. She was fifty, single, and content—until she got the call involving a harebrained idea from the three elderly women she adored. Eleanor knew they could sing, but now they had a “gig” at a supper club? Really? And where would they stay?

Connie Beckman was nearing the magical age of fifty. She wanted to retire someday, just not this day. But her uncle was in a helpless situation after he sank his retirement to build a dream and own a supper club and resort. Connie figured it was providence or just good old rotten luck. So she decided to help and make a success out of the vacation spot. Now there was only one thing missing at the Loon Lake Resort, those little incidentals—customers.

When The Ginkgo Girls invade upper Wisconsin, the quiet pristine woods will never be the same—neither will Eleanor or Connie.

5.0 out of 5 stars Love and the Aged 11 July 2014

A great love story involving Connie and Eleanor. And an equally lovely one involving old friends. Two families join together to love and laugh. I would recommend this book to my friends.

A different and cute story by Ms. Sweeney.

Eleanor, an entrepreneurial go-getter who lives in Chicago, has a sudden meeting with Connie, a woman who is more than she seems. Eleanor is begged by the women who practically raised her, to go with them to a resort in Wisconsin (they will sing at the supper club, and she will manage their efforts). Connie, coincidentally, is there as well. Will love bloom? Does a bear poop in the Wisconsin woods?

Sweeney's later books haven't been as good as her earlier ones; I hope she finds her mojo. This wasn't bad, but when you compare it to those older ones, one can notice a difference.

I would've loved more story and more pages, and that is my biggest complaint with lesbian fiction (that's my complaint with most fiction).

A good way to spend a few hours.

Very enjoyable read, made me laugh out loud in lobby of repair shop. Then I laughed so hard I cried, ok had tears in my eyes. Loved the characters. Great book to increase awareness of Alzheimer's disease.

a very original storyline and about women who are 47 and older
as with most of kate sweeney's books the secondary characters are also important for the story and laughter is guaranteed
i only had the impression that sometimes the story was a bit rushed

When I see a new book by Ms Sweeney, I dont need to look at reviews or descriptions. I buy it cause I know its gonna be a good story, well written, and funny. She's one of the few authors who cause me to laugh out loud. This is one author who keeps giving us 5 star quality time after time. yay!
