To celebrate the Halloween season, we are stretching the definition of chick lit a bit to include our October book, GONE GIRL, by Gillian Flynn.  It is promised by those who have read it to be very good and just a little bit creepy.  Thanks to Bobbi for the suggestion!!!!!!!

On a warm summer morning in North Carthage, Missouri, it is Nick and Amy Dunne’s fifth wedding anniversary. Presents are being wrapped and reservations are being made when Nick’s clever and beautiful wife disappears from their rented McMansion on the Mississippi River.  As the cops close in, every couple in town is soon wondering how well they know the one that they love. With his twin sister, Margo, at his side, Nick stands by his innocence. Trouble is, if Nick didn’t do it, where is that beautiful wife? And what was in that silvery gift box hidden in the back of her bedroom closet?

    Book Bub has "Mr. Churchill's Secretary" on sale today fpr $1.99 for e-readers today. I really like this series. It is a mystery relating of course to WWII about an American mathematician who goes to work as a typist for Winston Churchill in the 1940's. Not neccesarily book club material, but a good book none the less.
