Book Discussion:


The Romance Book Club’s July meeting discussed When Lightning Strikes, a time 
travel romance by Kristin Hannah. There was mixed reaction from the group about 
the book. This was the first time travel romance several of us had explored. As 
some of us were not especially fond of this particular book but wished to 
explore the genre further, Grace recommended another time travel romance we 
might like to try, A Knight In Shining Armor, by Jude Deveraux. Lynn expressed 
how realistic she thought the book was from the psychological standpoint.

Susan shared that Kristin Hannah’s website is kristinhannah.com. Once in Every 
Lifetime was also mentioned as another time travel novel written by this 
author; Firefly Lane and Between Sisters, (not time travel books) are other 
works by Hannah. She has written since 1991 after attending law school. She 
also wrote Comfort and Joy and now has gone to more mainstream fiction.


Notes On Book Club:


Grace announced she would be resigning from the club’s leadership after the 
August meeting because she will be returning to work - she does not know how 
much time she will have due to both family and work responsibilities. Susan 
will also be giving up the co-leadership role. Cindy stated the club actually 
encouraged her into reading romances again which she usually didn’t do. Our 
initial desire in forming this book club was to encourage each of us not only 
to read authors we were familiar with but to expand our horizons by introducing 
authors or genres of romance we had not read before! We both hope someone will 
want to continue this club in the future and have enjoyed our co-leadership, 
forming several new friendships!


August Recommendation And Meeting


For the August meeting, we did not recommend a particular book. everyone was 
encouraged to read whatever romance they chose and present a 3-4 minute 
discussion of the book to the group. Our next meeting will be Friday, August 
15, 2008, 9:00 p.m. Eastern, 6:00 p.m. Pacific! Hope to see you there! Until 
then, happy reading!
