When Lucy’s affair with her married boss turns sour and she’s retrenched, she moves to a quiet village where no one knows her history. She’s the incomer, as the locals call newbies,
until another arrives. Alice, also young and single, moves into the house next door.
She’s a little strange and Lucy doesn’t trust, or even like, her much. Even less so when Alice suggests starting a book club, her way of getting in with Lucy’s friends.
And Lucy’s right not to trust her. Alice has moved into the village for just one reason. Revenge!
Once you’ve started CJ Cooper’s The Book Club, you won’t put it down. Little Brown, R325
