My Willie’s Women Book Discussion was small but lively this month. Christine’s friend Mary Pat was our guest, a new RHS member and it was a pleasure to meet her and I hope she joins us again soon!
BERTHA-ROSE is currently reading her local book club’s December selection, The Big Finish by Brooke Fossey. Bertha-Rose calls it a “fun, light story”. The blurb on Amazon reads;
For Duffy Sinclair, life boils down to one simple thing: maintaining his residence at the idyllic Centennial Assisted Living. Without it, he’s destined for the roach-infested nursing home down the road—and after wasting the first eighty-eight years of his life, he refuses to waste away for the rest. So, he keeps his shenanigans to the bare minimum with the help of his straight-laced best friend and roommate, Carl Upton.But when Carl’s granddaughter Josie climbs through their bedroom window with booze on her breath and a black eye, Duffy’s faced with trouble that’s sticking around and hard to hide—from Centennial’s management and Josie’s toxic boyfriend. Before he knows it, he’s running a covert operation that includes hitchhiking and barhopping.He might as well write himself a one-way ticket to the nursing home…or the morgue. Yet Duffy’s all in. Because thanks to an unlikely friendship that becomes fast family—his life doesn’t boil down the same anymore. Not when he finally has a chance to leave a legacy.
KARI is a doll enthusiast and mentioned 2 magazines she subscribes to; Doll Castle News and the United Federation of Dolls’ publication, Doll News. The later is for UFDC members only. During a recent RHS Zoom chat, Kari shared with us some of her Snow White doll collection. If you have a similar interest, you’re probably aware of these publications.
CHRISTINE recently finished the Elizabeth Peters books she’s mentioned in the past and this month mentioned Janet Evanovich’s 27th Stephanie Plum novel, Fortune and Glory. This is a popular and fun series and Christine seemed to really enjoy this 27th book.
PENI JO Lady Clementine by Marie Benedict is another great book by this author. It tells the tale of Winston Churchill’s wife Clementine, and what remarkable lady she was. I highly recommend this author for anyone looking for books on women in history.
Next meeting is Dec. 14 at 3pm Eastern.
