Announcing a new Meetup for The Pittsburgh Chick Lit Book Club!

When: January 27,[masked]:00 PM
Where: (A location has not been chosen yet.)
Our first book of 2010 is The Great Indoors by Sabine Durrant. Thanks to Betsy for suggesting it! I will post where this book club will take place in Robinson after I call Panera to see if they are available on this date. If not, we will go back to the food court at the Mall at Robinson
Here's a little bit about the book:
Antique-shop owner Martha Bone finds pleasure in orderliness, but her stepfather's death threatens to disrupt her harmonious life. First, her sisters guilt her into taking in their stepfather's aging cat. But high-end antiques don't mix well with cat hair, so she finds Kitty a home with Fred and his two young children. Fred, a magician on the children's birthday party circuit, is exactly the opposite of Martha--messy, unpredictable, and gregarious. Yet, she finds herself inexplicably drawn to him. Just as he's challenging her to reevaluate her organized life, her ex-fiance reappears, making her question whether she had it right all along. Is a sense of security worth giving up all spontaneity, or can a little risk lead to true happiness? This conflict will hit close to home for many readers, and Durrant avoids the pitfalls of chick lit by creating multidimensional characters that question their life and surroundings. Their relationships seem real, and the dialogue goes beyond a string of witty one liners. This well-written, intelligent book will satisfy readers hungry for romance with more substance.
