"This lighthearted, cozy read brought a smile to my face. Lovers of
small town fiction are going to fall in love with "The Reading
Circle."" --Marie Bostwick, author of "Between Heaven and Texas "
Welcome to the quirky town of Cherico, Mississippi, where
potluck meetings at the local library provide a feast for mind and
stomach alike. . .
If some folks had their way, the Cherico library would have shut
down long ago. Councilman Durden Sparks aims to divert funding to a
cause dear to his heart--and his wallet. With the aid of gumption
and good friends, librarian Maura Beth Mayhew has finagled a
one-year reprieve, and the burgeoning book club is raising the
library's profile one mouthwatering meeting at a time. But more
members mean more opinions. . .
While the "Forrest Gump"-themed shrimp dishes are a universal
hit, meetings don't always go according to plan. Between spirited
debate over book choices and surprising revelations and
relationship hiccups--including Maura Beth's fledgling
romance--there's a lot to discuss. And just when bad luck threatens
to finish the library for good, the Cherry Cola Book Club may learn
that the best stories have twists--and heroes--you never expected.

real problem confronting libraries and cities of all sizes."
"Clever, sassy and as tasty as an icebox pie, "The Cherry Cola
Book Club "is a rare treat." --Erika Marks, author of "The Guest
