Apologies for the delay in putting this post up. It now leaves you with less time to read the book if you’re only getting your information from the blog posts. Signed up members of the book club receive emails informing them of the winning book as soon as the vote closes. If you wish to join the book club, you can find all details of how the book club runs and the sign-up link on this page HERE. We really would love for you to join us.
We read a varied selection of books and members agree they read books they wouldn’t normally choose and are happily surprised by how much they usually enjoy them. Of course, not every book suits every reader, but that happens when you’re picking your own books throughout the year anyway, so why not join a group of like-minded people and chat about books you love? We have members from around the globe, which is one of the great things about holding a book club online. I’m based in the UK, where we also have several members, as well as some in the US, Australia, and Europe. Every so often, the author of the book we’ve read joins us for a quick Q&A and we always enjoy it. Again, the link is HERE.
Back to this month’s book and the vote. It was a close-run vote this month, with two books receiving all of the votes bar one, which is highly unusual. So I made the deciding vote. From month to month I never vote. I’m simply here to facilitate the group for you. But in a situation like this, I will step in and cast a vote. With both books receiving such a high volume of books, it wouldn’t matter which I went.
So the book we are reading is Good as Dead by Susan Walter.
The next meeting is Monday 23rd May 8 pm BST (UK time zone). I look forward to seeing you there!
Good as Dead by Susan Walter
It all starts with a promise from a stranger: We’ll take care of everything.
Holly Kendrick’s husband is dead. Holly saw it all. In one violent moment, a hit-and-run accident turns Holly’s life upside down. Then a fixer for the high-powered guilty party approaches Holly with an offer she is in no position to refuse. Holly and her daughter, Savannah, will want for nothing, beginning with a luxury dream house—all for the price of their silence. But when their sudden appearance in privileged Calabasas, California, piques the curiosity of neighbors, the price becomes greater than they imagined. Because Holly and Savannah aren’t the only ones in the neighborhood with something to hide.
Told from alternating points of view, Good as Dead draws together an unlikely group of people bound to one another by a crime, a cover-up, and compounding deceptions. As carefully constructed lives begin to crumble, how far will everyone be willing to go to bury the truth and protect the people they love?
