Publisher's Summary

Librarian Janet Johnson is puzzled when she is invited - and practically dragged - to her first meeting of the Rejected Writers' Book Club. This quirky group of women would much rather celebrate one another's rejected manuscripts over cups of tea and slices of lemon cake than actually publish a book. But good friends are exactly what Janet needs after moving to the small town of Southlea Bay, Washington. Just as the ladies are about to raise a teacup to their five hundredth rejection letter, they receive bad news that could destroy one member's reputation - and disband the group forever. To save the club, Janet joins her fellow writers on a wild road trip to San Francisco in search of the local publisher who holds the key to a long-buried secret. As they race to the finish line, they'll face their fears - landslides, haunted houses, handsome strangers, ungrateful children - and have the time of their lives.

The blurb tells you what it's about. I just figured that I needed something light to listen to after all the psychological thrillers I usually listen to. This was certainly entertaining. I definitely will not remember this book after I've read a few more of any genre. It was amusing but not one of my top books that's for sure.

Southern drawl...

Is there anything you would change about this book?

I have to say this is not an inspiring story and it would have been listenable if it wasn't for the narrator's american drawl lasting for 8 hrs. I admit I struggled to get to the end favouring something more thrilling. In fact, I have 2 hours left to go and I don't think I'm going to make it... send help!!

What was your reaction to the ending? (No spoilers please!)

Never made it!

What didn’t you like about Tanya Eby’s performance?
