Title: 
All The Summer Girls

In Philadelphia, good girl Kate is dumped by her fiance the day she learns she is pregnant with his child. In New York City, beautiful stay-at-home mom Vanessa is obsessively searching the Internet for news of an old flame. And in San Francisco, Dani, the aspiring writer who can't seem to put down a book--or a cocktail--long enough to open her laptop, has just been fired... again.

In an effort to regroup, Kate, Vanessa, and Dani retreat to the New Jersey beach town where they once spent their summers. Emboldened by the seductive cadences of the shore, the women being to realize how much their lives, and friendships, have been shaped by the choices they made one fateful night on the beach eight years earlier--and the secrets that only now threaten to surface.

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: All The Summer Girls by Meg Donahue
