The Best Little Book Club in Town is an anthology of short stories and extracts by thirty different authors, including a few very well-known writers: Jodi Picoult, Mavis Cheek, Sophie Kinsella, Katie Fforde, Lee Child, Tracy Chevalier, Ruth Rendell, Elizabeth Nobel, Jo Jo Moyes, Kate Mosse and Cathy Kelly. The subjects are many and varied: an abandoned baker finds love; a mother consults a therapist for a very different reason; the effects of per therapy at the asylum; an old crush turns out to not be what he seemed; a fossil excites a cripple; a story of Russian spies; backyard camping makes friends of neighbours; a job application surprise; a charitable deed reaps a reward; a purchase brings an unexpected reconciliation; a woman provides an alibi for her ex-husband; a tattooist saves a lady’s marriage; a lie about a suspect backfires; an accidental find brings sweet peas and hope; a divorce leads to life improvement; Christmas magic happens; a man throws away true love; a bout of organised Christmas shopping; a one-night-stand backfires; a holiday romance; a ghost saves a widow; red high heels save the day; Trekkies are a welcome sight; a real estate agent appraises her life; Venice kills a romantic moment; Mom takes a vacation from the family; a serial killer groupie becomes a victim; a day at the beach stirs painful memories; a rainy vacation rekindles a spark; and an anniversary night becomes a haunting experience. The pieces are between six and twenty-six pages long, so this is a collection of quick, easy reads; they were written to support Breast Cancer Care. Quite enjoyable.
