Gumbeaux Sistahs Book by Jax Frey


The Gumbeaux Sistahs written by Jax Frey.

"Five Southern Women over age 50 wage a war against the ageism problems of one of their sistahs using their improbable friendship, hilarious evil-genius schemes, and shared passion for good gumbo. The Gumbeaux Sistahs is a heart-warming, smart, hilarious read.

When southern artist, Judith Lafferty, loses her long-time prestigious museum job to a much younger man, she finds herself devastated, alone in her sixties and on the brink of a financial disaster. Enter the incomparable Gumbeaux Sistahs, who deliver day-old, cold coffee to Judith's front door as a ploy, then kidnap her, feed her gumbo and come up with outrageous solutions to her problems. Their motives are basically just good excuses to drink wine, have a fabulous time, argue over whose mother makes the best gumbo, and, most of all, help a sistah out. Ageism, dangerous boyfriends, deep loneliness, and any other challenges that can face the over 50 crowd don't stand a chance against these five resourceful ladies. Trust me; you're going to wish the Gumbeaux Sistahs could show up at your house!"
