A celebrity kidnapping, Shimmering frogs, Russian mobsters and the Karma Sutra.
Book Club, the clue is in the title what the book is about but there is so much more going on than just meeting up and discussing books. Five women in the book club each with their own problems. Ashleigh wants to get pregnant but her husband is cheating on her, Marissa hates her job and her boss is a dickhead, the founder of the book club wants to be a writer but can't find her story, Billie's a virgin and doesn't know whether she is straight or a lesbian and then theres Hope, new to the book club, the sister of Marissa and she's about to tell them all some home truths.
Hope comes along and turns the book club upside down, She's determined to get everyone in the book club to where they need to be in life. Ashleigh away from her husband, Marissa out of her job, Billie knowing whether she is straight or gay and she's determined to get the founder of the book club to write all about it as her first book.
Will everything go the way Hope plans? Can Hope sort these women out and get them to where they need to be in life?
When I first started the book I wasn't sure if I liked it or not, but I thought to myself it's not a very long book so I will continue with it. This book was funnily enough chosen as this month's read for my book club. The further I got into the book towards the middle the more I started to enjoy it. I found myself relating to the founder of the book club as I too founded my book club and I aspire to write, although I am not sure I am at the stage where I want to write my own book, I do love to write my blog and poetry.
Towards the end, though I found the book got rather silly, I won't give any spoilers away but the whole kidnapping plot was just so unbelievable I found it actually ruined the book.
This book is a quick read, perfect for a beach read or by the pool, a light and funny book. I am giving this book 3-Stars
