The Second Chance Supper Club by Nicole Meier. Publication Date: September 10, 2019. Lake Union Publishing
Thank you to @getredpr #partner for my copy of this lovely book by @nicolemeierwrites.
I enjoyed this book so much. It’s about two estranged sisters, Julia and Ginny. Julia is an anchorwoman on a morning show in NYC. She has a hedge fund manager fiancé and a high-pressure job. But when Julia makes a major miscue on live TV, she flees to Arizona, where her older sister, Ginny lives with her daughter, Olive. Only problem is that Ginny and Julia haven’t spoken in three years.
Ginny was a celebrated chef in Manhattan before returning to Arizona after the death of their parents. Now Ginny is running a secret supper club in her house while trying to deal with her daughter, Olive when Julia arrives in the mix.
This book is filled with emotional moments, second chances, food 🥘, the beauty of Arizona and the relationship between sisters. I don’t have a sister, so I’m always interested in books that focus on that relationship. I also enjoyed reading a book that is set in Arizona. I spent many years visiting there, primarily in around the Mesa/Scottsdale area. But I also got to explore much of the state on my visits there. This book captured the uniqueness of Arizona quite well, and it was a pleasure to read.
If you’re looking for a book to read this fall on a cold, rainy afternoon, this is a great book to pick up. Julia and Ginny tell their story in alternating chapters, so the reader knows both of their points of view. This wonderful, heartwarming read is available now!
