Cherry Cola Book Club~Review

I won this giveaway on Lisa’s blog. Lisa’s review can be read here.

I’ve been reading a LOT through this pregnancy but the last month or so, I’ve just skimmed things and mostly re-read birth or nursing books.

It was fun to read a just for fun light read and I read it pretty quickly.

From the description:

With its corrugated iron siding and cramped interior, the Cherico, Mississippi, library is no Antebellum gem. But for young librarian Maura Beth Mayhew, it’s as essential to the community as the delicious desserts at the Twinkle, Twinkle Café. It’s a place for neighbors to mingle and browse through the newest bestsellers, for the indomitable Miss Voncille Nettles to host her “Who’s Who in Cherico?” meetings. The library may be underfunded and overlooked, but it’s Maura Beth’s pride, and she won’t let the good ole boys on the City Council close it down without a fight.

Which is why Maura Beth has founded the Cherry Cola Book Club–a last-ditch attempt to boost circulation and save her job. Over potluck dinners featuring treasured family recipes, the booklovers of Cherico come together to talk about literary classics. But soon it’s not just Margaret Mitchell and Harper Lee being discussed over chicken gumbo and homemade biscuits with green pepper jelly. Secrets are shared, old dreams rekindled, and new loves slowly blossom.

Southern charm, wit, and warmth combine in this delightful novel about great books, true friends, and the stories that give life its richest meaning, on and off the page.

My thoughts:

This book was a fun light read. I found myself wondering what would happen and whether or not Maura Beth would be able to keep the library alive.

I enjoy a book that makes me love the characters and feel that I want to know more about them.

It is not a Christian book–the language is clean–the subject matter is clean–there’s a slight hint of romance with a couple characters. Overall a good fun summer read!
