"Gumbeaux Sistas is a fun romp through a small southern town filled with heartache and the healing salve of friendship.  Author Jax Frey has created the most colorful southern women who will make you laugh, cry and keep you yearning for more."

 “From the first paragraph, Gumbeaux Sistahs had me hooked!  I could certainly relate to Judith’s plight, her feelings and her pride in wanting to keep them to herself and deal with them alone.  I also love the group of jovial women who observe Judith, empathize with her, and push their way in to help her.  This book may be about Southern women, but big applause to Jax Frey for writing this warm and humorous story that all women can relate to.”

"A true New Orleans soul, Jax Frey has carved another piece of the universe in her new book, The Gumbeaux Sistahs.” Frey’s creative whimsy and attention to detail shines in a tale of love, life and getting even. Her signature, “Sistahs” come to life in a healing circle of gumbo gab stocked with a heavy dose of sassy drama and comedic flair."

 Deborah Burst, freelance writer and photographer, author of five books, including Louisiana's Sacred Places

"The improbable friendship of five Southern women battling ageism with comedic effect is a gift to lovers of literature and wit.  This hilarious story of friendship and unexpected shenanigans is one you do not want to miss, but be careful reading it in public because you WILL laugh out loud.  With an artist's eye, Jax Frey deftly captures the passion, culture, and unparalleled uniqueness of Southeast Louisiana.  I'm fortunate to call Jax a friend -- and to call myself a feminist -- but it's not necessary to be either to relish this book.  You don't have to know Jax to appreciate her work, but after experiencing it, you'll wish you did."

“There’s no problem that can’t be solved with a little wine and my Mama’s gumbo," said every single Gumbeaux Sistah. ever.

The Gumbeaux Sistahs - Five Southern Women wage a hilarious war, using their improbable friendships, hilarious evil-genius schemes, and shared passion for good gumbo, against the ageism problems of one of their deep-in-trouble sisters.  The Gumbeaux Sistahs is a heart-warming, smart, laugh-out-loud 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 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!
