The Book Club Hotel: A Christmas Novel
Though the picturesque Maple Sugar Inn, nestled in the mountains of Vermont, seems the perfect spot for a holiday, Anna and Claudia are stunned when their world-traveling best friend Erica chooses the inn as the meeting spot for their annual book club/girl’s getaway. Sarah Morgan’s darling novel, The Book Club Hotel, reveals Erica’s secrets, reignites Claudia’s passions, and helps Anna to gleefully anticipate her next chapter.
When the three friends arrive, the Maple Sugar Inn is out of sorts. The owner, recently widowed Hattie, is trying her best to fulfill the dream she shared with her late husband, but she doesn’t have his business acumen or energy as she also raises their daughter on her own. The renowned chef is a nightmare, the head of housekeeping is a judgmental shrew, and a brief romantic interlude with a local vendor threatens to tear the Inn apart.
As Hattie gets to know Erica, Anna, and Claudia, all four women discover the importance of honesty, kindness, and support. They bring out the best in one another and encourage the kind of risk taking and hope that can only come from dear friends. The Book Club Hotel is charming, sweet, and along the lines of work by Jenny Colgan, Daisy Wood, and Susan Wigg. If you’re in the mood for a holiday read, this is the perfect fit.
