Christmas Eve at Friday Harbor by Lisa Kleypas SOUTH HILLS MEET UP

Please Bring a Chick Lit book suggestion if you have one!

Not sure what to bring? A chick lit book that is out in Paperback. Here is the definition of Chick Lit: Chick lit is genre fiction within women's fiction which addresses issues of modern women often humorously and lightheartedly*** Sometimes we do slightly deeper books than this, but we always do women's fiction that's not too heavy so if you don't have time to read it you can still come & enjoy yourself.

Christmas Eve at Friday Harbor

by Lisa Kleypas

Description:

Kleypas (Love in the Afternoon) finds a little romantic magic in this spritely charmer. Mark Nolan's happy-go-lucky bachelorhood is interrupted by the death of his sister and his subsequent guardianship of her six-year-old daughter, Holly, who is traumatized into muteness and desperately seeking a maternal figure. Enter Maggie Collins, a toy shop owner who lost her own husband to cancer. As the holiday season draws closer, Maggie, Mark, and Holly begin to spend more time together, and Maggie and Mark's attraction becomes too powerful to ignore. Kleypas's holiday offering is sweet, romantic, and genuine, and avoids, thankfully, all the cheesy holiday miracle clichés. A solid romance with strong leads, this is a refreshing holiday treat.

    Missi - I liked the book a lot but didn't think there was much to talk about. I don't really have questions about this type of book.

    Can we get back to the idea of everyone bringing questions to discuss - maybe we bring a basket or can and people can write it down and we go through the slips throughout dinner. I really enjoyed the last book and would have liked to discussed it a bit more - we are all really smart, crafty women I bet we can come up with some good questions.

      Hi Missi, I used to put that in each meet up but no one really did it, so I stopped. But, if anyone is interested in bringing questions, feel free. It will definately help the discussion. And you know how it is, we get on tangents and don't always discuss each book at length. See you soon!

      Okay maybe I will make a cute container and try to guilt everyone into it! Thanks for being our fearless leader - we are not an easy group to corral!
