For our May selection, we'll be reading Guilty Wives by James Patterson and David Ellis!


No husbands allowed: Only minutes after Abbie Elliot and her three best friends step off of a private helicopter, they enter the most luxurious, sumptuous, sensually pampering hotel they have ever been to. Their lavish presidential suite overlooks Monte Carlo, and they surrender: to the sun and pool, to the sashimi and sake, to the Bruno Paillard champagne. For four days they're free to live someone else's life. As the weekend moves into pulsating discos, high-stakes casinos, and beyond, Abbie is transported to the greatest pleasure and release she has ever known.
What happened last night?: In the morning's harsh light, Abbie awakens on a yacht, surrounded by police. Something awful has happened--something impossible, unthinkable. Abbie, Winnie, Serena, and Bryah are arrested and accused of the foulest crime imaginable. And now the vacation of a lifetime becomes the fight of a lifetime--for survival. GUILTY WIVES is the ultimate indulgence, the kind of nonstop joy-ride of excess, friendship, betrayal, and danger that only James Patterson can create.

Food: We'll have a potluck of 'not guilty' foods. So, find your best healthy and good-for-you recipes for this guilt-free meal!

Please sign up for one of the following:

  • 4 side dishes/appetizers: Christi (fruit), Deb (green salad), Julie (coleslaw), & __
  • 3 main entrees: Paula (healthy chicken enchiladas), Ali (pulled pork), & Beverly (chicken dish)
  • 2 desserts: Jennifer & Mary
  • 2 drinks (nonalcoholic and alcoholic): Alexis & __

    Hi ladies, sorry, I didn't realize I was on the RSVP list. I've been traveling almost non-stop for the past month and I need to be home and get my life in order. Have fun and I'll hope to join again soon! Hugs -- Aileen

    Sure no problem! I didn't notice that at all. I was reading it on my cell phone(very small print) I'll bring dessert. Not sure how guilt-free it will be HAHA

      Thanks Jennifer! My favorite 'healthy' dessert is angel food cake. But, I'm sure even if it's a little less guilt-free, we won't complain!

      Hi Jennifer... sounds like you will be bringing something with cake or fruit. I'll bring something with chocolate to vary the two desserts a little bit. Guilt-free chocolate is possible!

    I'll bring fruit salad.

      Hi Jennifer, I'm not sure if you noticed, but I signed up to bring fruit since I have a lot of fruit allergies. If there's some kind of special fruit salad that you'd be making that would be different than plain fruit, that's fine to bring. But, if not, would it be possible for you to bring something else? Thanks!

      Hi Cheryl, Right now, this discussion is full. Sometimes are number is flexible, but we are limited based on the size of where we are meeting, and there is no room for more than 12 people. If you notice that someone has changed their RSVP to No, and there is an open space, you are welcome to update your RSVP to include a +1 for a friend along with what potluck item that friend will be bringing. Thanks.
