Good Morning World! What a lovely meeting last night!!
We met at my house La Petite Maison de Joie for Historic College Park Book Club’s June meeting. Our book was Sunday Lunch Club by Juliet Ashton. I listened to this on Audible which was quite delightful considering the narrator had an English accent which completely made the book come alive for me! I’m a sucker for an English accent.
The Beanster aka Judy Bean was the first to arrive at my house. I was fearful we were the only ones attending then everyone began spilling in!!! We had a very good group for the evening! There was one other instance when Judy and I were the ‘only’ ones in attendance – remember that Judy ? it was years ago…… we were having book club at one of the local eateries – luckily we had the best wee book club meeting with just the two of us! Ha! So many cherished memories with our book club which began in 2007 with just a handful of neighbors. Our first book was Loving Frank.
I could not find book club questions for this book – sorry girls! There is a list of generic book club questions I recently stumbled upon but could not find them. Anywho….. we managed quite nicely I think. We enjoyed the book for the most part. It was completely a beach read – with a slow beginning but we were drawn in after we got started. The theme of the book is about family. All the craziness that involves each of us and how it’s important to stick with the group which they did nicely through Sunday Lunch Club hence the name. There were secrets, regrets, loathing and a lot of love swirled in this book. I really liked the menus at the beginning of each chapter.

Thank you everyone for bringing delightful nibbles (and the Bischoff from Judy considering you’re a Delta gal!) but especially to Laura Lee for actually using my oven which never EVER gets used! Because I do not COOK! Those shrimp were divine!
Of course with our local Mayoral race heating up we HAD to go there and get political talk going (my bad actually… he he he). I hope all the candidates ears are burning! We talked about the good bad and the ugly. Thanks everyone for putting their two cents in on all the candidates. Should be an interesting election indeed. Just hopeful the most ethical, honest, and bright (we know who that is now don’t we – giggling) gets elected!
Thanks again everyone for coming to our meeting last night. I just love book club…. don’t you?
Special thanks to my sweet wee Scottish Terriers for being so good!! Pip, Cricket and Bumble are the cutest.
