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.

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.

Title: 
Trouble in Mudbug

Scientist Maryse Robicheaux thought that a lot of her problems had gone away with her mother-in-law’s death. The woman was rude, pushy, manipulative and used her considerable wealth to run herd over the entire town of Mudbug, Louisiana. Unfortunately, death doesn’t slow down Helena one bit. DEA Agent Luc LeJeune is wondering what his undercover assignment investigating the sexy scientist has gotten him into – especially as it seems someone wants her dead. Keeping his secrets while protecting Maryse proves to be easier than fighting his attraction for the brainy beauty.

Title: 
Much Ado About You

When you're the oldest daughter, you don't get to have any fun!

Witty, orphaned Tess Essex faces her duty: marry well and marry quickly, so she can arrange matches for her three sisters -- beautiful Annabel, romantic Imogen and practical Josie. After all, right now they're under the rather awkward guardianship of the perpetually tipsy Duke of Holbrook. But just when she begins to think that all might end well, one of her sisters bolts with a horse-mad young lord, and her own fiancé just plain runs away.

Which leaves Tess contemplating marriage to the sort of man she wishes to avoid -- one of London's most infamous rakes. Lucius Felton is a rogue whose own mother considers him irredeemable! He's delicious, Annabel points out. And he's rich, Josie notes. But although Tess finally consents to marry him, it may be for the worst reason of all. Absurd as she knows it to be, she may have fallen utterly in love . . .

Join us at the Monrovia Community Center next door to the Monrovia Library for a brown bag lunch and book discussion.  This event will take place at a nearby restaurant since the Community Center will be used for elections on June 3.  Please contact 256-489-3392 or chewitt@hmcpl.org for more information.

Title: 
To Taste Temptation

The ton loves nothing more than a good scandal, and they're giddy with the appearance of wealthy Samuel Hartley. Not only is he self-made, American, and in the habit of wearing moccasins, but he is also notorious for fleeing a battle in which several English gentlemen lost their lives. What the ton doesn't know, though, is that Samuel is in London because of this massacre. He believes his regiment was given up to the enemy and won't rest until he finds the traitor.  Lady Emeline Gordon is captivated with Samuel. Not only does he defy convention with his unusual dress, his sensual smile, and his forthright manner, but he survived the battle that killed her beloved brother. Samuel suspects that the person responsible for her brother's death is Jasper Renshaw, Viscount Vale, a family friend since childhood--and Emeline's fiancé. Despite Emeline's belief in Vale's innocence and her refusal to break off her betrothal, she and Samuel begin a passionate affair. But can their relationship survive the fallout from Samuel's investigation?

The Lunch and Love Romance Book Club meets in the Monrovia Community Center meeting room next door to the Monrovia Library.  Bring a brown bag lunch and enjoy a lively book discussion.  For more information contact 256-489-3392 or chewitt@hmcpl.org.

Title: 
1225 Christmas Tree Lane

The people of Cedar Cove know how to celebrate Christmas. Like Grace and Olivia and everyone else, Beth Morehouse expects this Christmas to be one of her best. Her small Christmas-tree farm is prospering, her daughters and her dogs are happy and well, and her new relationship with local vet Ted Reynolds is showing plenty of romantic promise.

But…someone recently left a basket filled with puppies on her doorstep, puppies she's determined to place in good homes. That's complication number one. And number two is that her daughters Bailey and Sophie have invited their dad, Beth's ex-husband, Kent, to Cedar Cove for Christmas. The girls have visions of a mom-and-dad reunion dancing in their heads.

As always in life—and in Cedar Cove—there are surprises, too. More than one family's going to have a puppy under the tree. More than one scheme will go awry. And more than one romance will have a happy ending!

The group will meet at an individual's home for this meeting to enjoy a Christmas celebration.  Please contact Cindy Hewitt at 256-489-3392 for more information. Read more about Lunch and Love Romance Book Club: 1225 Christmas Tree Lane by Debbie Macomber

Pride and Prejudice

Note:  This meeting has been moved to the second Tuesday this month because of scheduling conflicts.  Also, the club will meet off-site at Victoria's Cafe at 7540 Memorial Pkwy SW # E, Huntsville, AL 35802.

When Elizabeth Bennet first meets eligible bachelor Fitzwilliam Darcy, she thinks him arrogant and conceited; he is indifferent to her good looks and lively mind. When she later discovers that Darcy has involved himself in the troubled relationship between his friend Bingley and her beloved sister Jane, she is determined to dislike him more than ever. In the sparkling comedy of manners that follows, Jane Austen shows the folly of judging by first impressions and superbly evokes the friendships,gossip and snobberies of provincial middle-class life.

When a senator's daughter is killed, the secret life of prostitution she'd been leading is revealed. The high-profile case takes Lieutenant Eve Dallas into the rarefied circles of Washing-ton politics and society. Further complicating matters is Eve's growing attraction to Roarke, who is one of the wealthiest and most influential men on the planet, devilishly handsome . . . and the leading suspect in the investigation.
