Literary Circle November

The Literary Circle's November selection is "The Weekender" by Mary Kay Andrews. We will gather at the home of Sandy Montgomery at 10:00 on Monday, November 21st for our discussion and lunch.

The Weekender is a story about people who stay all summer long on the idyllic Belle Isle, N.C. Others come only for the weekend, the mix between the regulars and the "weekenders" can sometimes make the sparks fly. Riley Griggs has a season of good times with friends and family ahead of her when things take an unexpected turn. While waiting for her husband to arrive on the ferry one Friday afternoon, Riley is confronted by a process server who thrusts papers in her hand. Her husband is no where to be found.

So she turns to her island friends for help and support, but it turns out each of them has their own secrets, and the clock is ticking as the mystery a murderous way. Cocktail parties aside, Riley must find a way to investigate the secrets of Belle Island, the husband she might not really know, and the summer that could change everything.

Told with Mary Kay Andres trademark blend of humor and warmth, and with characters and a setting that you can't help but fall for, "The Weekender" is a perfect escape.
