Book Club

Each month, a group of us girls get together to eat, drink, be merry and talk books. It is so nice to have a designated night away from the stresses of work, husbands, kids and school to just unwind and have quality time with the important women in my life. I thought it would be nice to chronicle what we read and how we like it. So up first: 

The Husband's Secret by Liane Moriarty

Synopsis: Cecilia Fitzpatrick, devoted mother, successful Tupperware business owner and efficient P&C President, has found a letter from her husband. ''For my wife, Cecilia Fitzpatrick To be opened only in the event of my death'' But Cecilia's husband isn't dead, he's on a business trip. And when she questions him about it on the phone, Cecilia senses something she hasn't experienced before. John-Paul is lying. What happens next changes Cecilia's formerly blissful suburban existence forever, and the consequences will be life-changing for the most unexpected people.

This book was a hit with everyone. It was a thrilling, fun read that I didn't put down for 2 days. It was a great book for discussion since we all were able to put ourselves in Cecilia's shoes and try to imagine how we might behave in her situation. The entire book is so thought provoking and emotional that is was almost overwhelming, but wonderfully so. The best part for me was the epilogue...a full chapter of what destiny had in store for these characters. 

What's your favorite book? Any suggestions for our group to read next month?
