Title: 
Secrets of the Lost Summer

A wave of hope carries Olivia Frost back to her small New England hometown nestled in the beautiful Swift River Valley. She's transforming a historic home into an idyllic getaway. Picturesque and perfect, if only the absentee owner will fix up the eyesore next door.…Dylan McCaffrey's ramshackle house is an inheritance he never counted on. It also holds the key to a generations-old lost treasure he can't resist…any more than he can resist his new neighbor. Against this breathtaking landscape, Dylan and Olivia pursue long-buried secrets and discover a mystery wrapped in a love story…past and present.

Because of elections we will meet at a nearby restaurant instead of the community center this month.  For more information contact chewitt@hmcpl.org or 256-489-3392. Read more about Lunch and Love Romance Book Club: Secrets of the Lost Summer

Title: 
Future Widow's Club

Welcome to the Future Widows' Club--a secret society of women who've been treated like garbage by their horrible husbands and would rather wait for widowhood than endure a divorce. But sometimes waiting can be murder... Jolie Marshall's husband Chris is definitely horrible, bless her heart. He tricked Jolie into an "I do"--and her mother out of her father's life insurance money. Now Jolie is staying in the marriage--with a little assistance from the Future Widows' Club, of course--while she amasses the necessary evidence to send him to prison. But when Chris is murdered, Jolie becomes the prime suspect. And her alibi? She was at an FWC meeting, which doesn't exactly lend itself to innocence. But when old flame Jake Malone--the man Jolie ditched to marry Chris--is assigned lead detective on the case she knows she's really in hot water. Because suddenly the new widow is thinking that a life sentence with no hope for parole--with him--wouldn't be too bad.

Join us for a brown bag lunch and book discussion in the Monrovia Community Center Meeting room next door to the Monrovia Library.  For more information contact chewitt@hmcpl.org or 256-489-3392. Read more about Lunch and Love Romance Book Club: Future Widow's Club by Rhonda Nelson

Title: 
Virgin River

Wanted: Midwife/nurse practitioner in Virgin River, population six hundred. Make a difference against a backdrop of towering California redwoods and crystal-clear rivers. Rent-free cabin included.
When the recently widowed Melinda Monroe sees this ad, she quickly decides that the remote mountain town of Virgin River might be the perfect place to escape her heartache, and to reenergize the nursing career she loves. But her high hopes are dashed within an hour of arriving: the cabin is a dump, the roads are treacherous and the local doctor wants nothing to do with her. Realizing she's made a huge mistake, Mel decides to leave town the following morning.  But a tiny baby, abandoned on a front porch, changes her plans…and former marine Jack Sheridan cements them into place.

Join us for a brown bag lunch and book discussion in the Monrovia Community Center meeting room next door to Monrovia Library.  For more information contact chewitt@hmcpl.org or 256-489-3392.
