Between the Covers Book Club

Dog-Eared’s “Between the Covers” Book Club is a celebration of all things rom-com led by one of the genre’s greatest fans, DeAnn. With a new pick each month, swooning has never been so much fun.

Booked on a Feeling by Jayci Lee

WHEN: Saturday, August 20, 8 PM 
WHERE: Dog-Eared Books 

This month we are reading Booked on a Feeling by Jayci Lee! The Between the Covers book club will meet at 8 PM on Saturday, August 20. 

Lizzy “Overachiever” Chung, Esq. has her life mapped out neatly:
* Become a lawyer. Check.
* Join a prestigious law firm. Check.
* Make partner. In progress.

If all goes to plan, she will check off that last box in a couple years, make her parents proud, and live a successful, fulfilled life in L.A. What was not in her plans was passing out from a panic attack during a pivotal moment in her career. A few deep breaths and a four hour drive later, Lizzy is in Weldon for three weeks to shed the burnout and figure out what went wrong. And what better place to recharge than the small California town where she spent her childhood summers with her best friend, Jack Park.

Jack Park didn’t expect to see Lizzy back in Weldon, but now he’s got three weeks to spend with the girl of his dreams. Except she doesn’t know of his decades-long crush on her–and he intends to keep it that way. She’s a high-powered attorney who lives in L.A. and he’s a bookkeeper at his family’s brewery who never left his hometown. He can’t risk their friendship on a long shot. Can he? When Lizzy decides that the local bookstore needs a little revamp, of course, Jack is going to help her bring it back to life. But the more time they spend together, the harder it becomes to ignore there might be more than just friendship among the dusty shelves and books…

Sometimes the path to the rest of your life has been in front of you all along.

Purchase a copy to read, or grab it from the library, and join us at Dog·Eared Books at 8 PM on Saturday, August 20, to discuss the book with book club host DeAnn! This book club is free to anyone who wishes to participate, no registration necessary.
