Between the Covers Book Club

When: Saturday, December 17, 7 PM
Where: Dog-Eared Books

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.

A Very Merry Bromance by Lyssa Kay Adams

This month we are reading A Very Merry Bromance by Lyssa Kay Adams! The Between the Covers book club will meet at 7 PM on Saturday, December 17.

Country music’s golden boy Colton Wheeler felt the most perfect harmony when he was with Gretchen Winthrop. But for her, it was a love him and leave him situation. A year later, Colton is struggling to push his music forward in a new direction. If it weren’t about to be the most magical time of year and the support of the Bromance Book Club, he’d be wallowing in self-pity.

It’s hard for immigration attorney Gretchen not to feel a little Scrooge-ish about the excess of Christmas when her clients are scrambling to afford their rent. So when her estranged, wealthy family reaches out with an offer that will allow her to better serve the community, she’s unable to say no. She just needs to convince Colton to be the new face of her family’s whiskey brand. No big deal…

Colton agrees to consider Gretchen’s offer in exchange for three dates before Christmas. With the help of the Bromance Book Club, Colton throws himself into the task of proving to her there’s a spark between them. But Gretchen and Colton will both need to overcome the ghosts of Christmas past to build a future together.

Purchase a copy to read, or grab it from the library, and join us at Dog·Eared Books at 7 PM on Saturday, December 17, to discuss the book with book club host DeAnn! This book club is free to anyone who wishes to participate, no registration necessary.
