THE CHERRY COLA BOOK CLUB
The Cherry Cola Book Club is a delightful read, written in a light and breezy style, with a cast of characters that is equal parts kooky and genuine, all set in a picturesque, quiet Southern town. It’s so easy to get into the novel that the characters start to become friends, and sitting in the small-town library discussing classic literature becomes a pastime. Lee makes this such a wonderful pleasure, and reading it is a perfect way to spend a lazy afternoon.
Maura Beth Mayhew loves working in the library in the small town of Cherico, Miss. While it’s nothing fancy, it serves as a place for the local community to mingle and browse through books without question. But now the city council wants to close it down for good, and Maura Beth isn’t going down without a fight. In a last-ditch attempt to boost circulation and save her job, she starts the Cherry Cola Book Club. As the book club grows, and more than just feelings about literature is discussed, Maura Beth’s hopes get higher and higher that this little book club could save the day. But will it really? Or is she going to have to pack her bags and find a new place to call home? (KENSINGTON, Apr., 272 pp., $15.00)
