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

What: Greetings from Somewhere Else by Monica McInerney - AL'S CAFE SOUTH HILLS 7PM

When: Wednesday, March 3,[masked]:00 PM

Al's Cafe
435 McMurray Road
Bethel Park, PA 15102

Read a book about IRELAND and it has a GREEN cover to celebrate St. Patty's Day. While you are at it, why don't you wear GREEN to the meet up!

PLEASE DECIDE YOUR RSVP by 2PM on MARCH 3rd. This is a restaurant and we need to give them an exact count. Too many no shows and we don't want to make this great location mad. Also, bring a book to suggest for April!

[i]Description: Lainey Byrne has the usual problems, what with her success in the corporate world and her mild failures in all things romantic. This quasi-idyllic existence comes to an end when she leaves for rural Ireland to take over a neglected bed and breakfast so her family can collect a rich aunt's inheritance. Though Lainey's inexperience with cooking and cleaning puts her in a precarious position at first, McInerney dodges the potential clich? of having the protagonist fall back on her chef ex-boyfriend, Adam-but only to choose the equally hackneyed route of her finding new love in an old school chum, and an unexpectedly fulfilled life at the bed and breakfast.

?A heartwarming, romantic and funny story about love, family and relationships.??Irish Independent

?Disarmingly funny . . . compassionate, clever . . . [Monica] McInerney? s story and plot resonate with a Maeve Binchy kind of generosity of spirit.??The Age, Australia

?McInerney uses richly drawn characters, witty dialogue, and the beauty of the Irish countryside to tell the story of a woman-in-control made to let go and let things happen, thus allowing her to rediscover her heritage and her own true passions.? ? Booklist

?If you?re looking for a breezy, late-summer addition to your library, pick up a copy of Monica McInerney?s novel, Greetings from Somewhere Else. A combination of an easy to follow main storyline combined with compelling subplots and a likable main character make it a quintessential beach book.? ?MostlyFiction Reviews
