Book Group Forming: A Christmas Guest

Okay since I know how we can dilly dally around with hundreds of book suggestions and no one making a decision...LOL....I decided to propose a book group to read: A Christmas Guest by Anne Perry

This book is one of the whole Christmas novels she writes and although I have never read any of them I looked over at amazon and they seem to have some good reviews. I am suggesting we just jump right in with this one even though it is not the first in the series....partly because it seems readily available and partly because I like the description of the cranky grandma that become more likeable in this novel. Check out the book and its reviews: HERE I am assuming it may be available in local libraires too....haven't had a chance to check mine yet....or perhaps used book stores.

I am proposing a start date of: July 6th...that should give us plenty of time to get our hands on the book. We will read a certain number of pages per week and discuss the story line and characters....if you read ahead...that's fine but don't spoil anything for us!!! LOL

If you have already read the book....a reread might be in order....at times I discover new things in a reread. Let me know what you think and if you will be joining the book group
