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.

Thanks!

Here is a bit about the book: 

Ten Beach Road

On the brink of ruin, three very different women discover themselves where they least expect…at Ten Beach Road.

Madeline, Avery, and Nicole are strangers to one another, but they have one thing in common. They each wake up one morning to discover that their life savings have vanished, along with their trusted financial manager…leaving them with nothing but co-ownership of a dilapidated beachfront house.

No one is going to save them but themselves. Determined to fight back, they throw their lots in together and take on the challenge of restoring the historic mansion to its former glory. But just as they begin to reinvent themselves and discover the power of friendship, their secrets threaten to tear down their trust, and destroy their lives a second time.

 

***This book is available in the following formats: Amazon, Kindle, Nook and the Carnegie Library system***

Hope to see you there! 

Just a reminder--you are always welcome to join us, even if you haven't read the book!    We'd love to have your company, but do understand that you will hear details about the books, including spoilers and the ending.  Thanks!

    Hi Everyone, I am sad to say I won't be able to make it this month--will miss seeing all of you! Liselle will be hosting this month (thanks, Liselle!) so please do be sure to update your RSVPs as early as possible on Wednesday if you find you are unable to attend--she will need to give Sunny Jim's an updated count that afternoon. I'll be posting a sneak peek at the book choices for August, and our two location pics in another post :)

    Was just checking out this month's author, and noticed she has another book that just came out: "WHILE WE WERE WATCHING DOWNTON ABBEY" If you are a fan of the show, this looks like it might be a fun read :)
