North Hills Book Club - Crazy Little Thing by Tracy Brogan

Our book choice for June is Crazy Little Thing by Tracy Brogan.  Thanks to Linda for this month's choices! 

This month we'll meet at Monte Cello's on Babcock Blvd.  Be sure to check out their menu below:

Monte Cello's 

2198 Babcock Blvd.
Pittsburgh, PA 15209


If you find you are unable to attend, please update your RSVP no later than 3:00 pm on WEDNESDAY if possible...I'll need to give the restaurant a final count of the group at that time.



Here is a bit about the book: 

If Sadie Turner is good at anything, it’s putting stuff in order. So when she finds her “perfect” life in disarray, she hopes a summer vacation at her aunt’s lake house will help her piece it back together. She wants to relax, reboot, and heal the wounds left by her cheating ex-husband. And that requires time away from men. All men.

Or so she thinks.

With two slobbering dogs and two cousins living there—one a flamboyant decorator intent on making over Sadie—it’s hard to get a moment’s peace at eccentric Aunt Dody’s house, especially with everyone so determined to set her up with Desmond, the sexy new neighbor.

Desmond is Sadie’s worst nightmare. Tall, tanned, muscular…and to top it off, he’s great with her kids. But he must have a flaw—he’s a man—so Sadie vows to keep her distance.

As summer blazes on, the life Sadie is trying so hard to simplify only becomes more complicated—a new career presents itself, her evil ex haunts her, and Aunt Dody reveals a tragic secret—but maybe a little chaos is just what Sadie needs to get her life back in order.


This book is available in the following formats: Amazon, Kindle, and the Carnegie Library system (my apologies, but it does not appear to available for Nook!)

Hope to see you there!

    Hi everyone! Since I just joined the group, I couldn't read the book in time for last night's get together. But I'm excited to be there next month! Any decision on what we're reading for July?

    I'm having a family issue that I have to take care of when I get home. I will do my best to be there at 7:30--maybe this is a good thing.

      Hey, I was thinking we should all take our books to the tea, set up a table, and sell them - for $1 or .50 apiece to whomever might want them????

    Janet - Did anyone borrow your book yet? If not, I would be interested as I have not gotten a copy yet. I may have to stay at work a little late tonight (Monday) to finish something up - but could meet after that. Thanks, Vonda

    Does anyone want to borrow my copy of this month's book. I finished it (in a day - LOVE being retired!!!). I am leaving for SC Thursday morning (June 6-17) - so you will have to get it from me before then. I could meet Monday (June 3) evening to pass it off since I don't have plans (other than laundry and packing - and watching the Pens' game) Monday evening. And I could probably meet Tuesday evening (I am having some major dental work done at 2:00 that afternoon). Let me know. (AUNT) Janet
