November Book Club

Holly R., Dorothy, and I would like to thank everyone who participated in our Zoom Book Club meeting in November. We had a wonderful conversation discussing Behind Closed Doors by B.A. Paris.

“Everyone knows a couple like Jack and Grace. He has looks and wealth; she has charm and elegance. He’s a dedicated attorney who has never lost a case; she is a flawless homemaker, a masterful gardner and cook, and dotes on her disabled younger sister. Though they are still newlyweds, they seem to have it all. You might not want to like them, but you do. You’re hopelessly charmed by the ease and comfort of their home, by the graciousness of the dinner parties they throw. You’d like to get to know Grace better. But it’s difficult because you realize Jack and Grace are inseparable. Some might call this true love. Others might wonder why Grace never answers the phone. Or why she can never meet for coffee, even though she doesn’t work. How she can cook such elaborate meals but remain so slim. Or why she never seems to take anything with her when she leaves the house, not even a pen. Or why there are such high-security metal shutters on all the downstairs windows. Some might wonder what’s really going on once the dinner party is over, and the front door has closed.”

Our next Zoom book club meeting will be Thursday, January 28, 2021 at 7:00 p.m., and our book for discussion will be “The Book of Lost Friends” by Lisa Wingate.

Thank you so much for your continued interest in the Zoom Book Club.
