For anyone new to this book club- you are NOT required to read the books; however, we do read and discuss the books- and any other topics that spin off from those discussions. Still optional to read them.
Given our snacks seem to rarely get eaten or only a nibble, you are always welcome to bring a small snack or drink (usually wine) to share, but please do not feel obligated to do so.
Also, we are a very friendly and COVID- SAFE book club. We request that you either be vaccinated or wear a mask to attend, especially now with all the respiratory illnesses going around. .
Ellie Mack was the perfect daughter. She was fifteen, the youngest of three. Beloved by her parents, friends, and teachers, and half of a teenaged golden couple. Ellie was days away from an idyllic post-exams summer vacation, with her whole life ahead of her. And then she was gone.
Now, her mother Laurel Mack is trying to put her life back together. It’s been ten years since her daughter disappeared, seven years since her marriage ended, and only months since the last clue in Ellie’s case was unearthed. So when she meets an unexpectedly charming man in a café, no one is more surprised than Laurel at how quickly their flirtation develops into something deeper. Before she knows it, she’s meeting Floyd’s daughters—and his youngest, Poppy, takes Laurel’s breath away.
Because looking at Poppy is like looking at Ellie. And now, the unanswered questions she’s tried so hard to put to rest begin to haunt Laurel anew. Where did Ellie go? Did she really run away from home, as the police have long suspected, or was there a more sinister reason for her disappearance? Who is Floyd, really? And why does his daughter remind Laurel so viscerally of her own missing girl?
Looking forward to seeing everyone and happy reading!
