I Hate My Book Club by D.B. Gilles

Length: 326 pages4 hours


Valerie needs to save her rapidly shrinking book club. So when one member recruits a flamboyant, mysterious local waitress named Cinnamon, it’s a mixed blessing. Valerie knows she needs more members, but Cinnamon rubs her the wrong way. And when she starts proposing changes to Valerie’s book club, Valerie wants her out. With Cinnamon growing in popularity, Valerie is pushed outside her comfort zone and her well-ordered life begins to spiral, starting with the arrival of Wyatt Pettibone, the first man to ever be in the book club. Next comes the news that a former member, another Valerie nemesis, wants to come back. But when Valerie learns a dark secret about Cinnamon’s past, she realizes that having her in the book club may be just the thing to save it.
