This is the first book in the newly revised Supper Club series by Ellery Adams. Originally she had used the name J.B. Stanley but has had all the books revised, or is in the process of doing that, to use the same name across all her series. I originally read this book in July of 2017 and since I reviewed it on Goodreads then, it won’t count as part of my challenge for 2018.
I wanted to re-read it so I could take part in a Facebook book club that Ellery is having until March 23. She’s doing a daily giveaway or sometimes two and asking questions about the story. I felt like I had forgotten a lot so I wanted to re-read and also mention the book here since I only just started this blog January 2018. I owned the original on Kindle but loved the new cover so much so I requested the revised edition from NetGalley to voluntarily read and review.
I’m writing longer book reviews now but here’s the short, sweet and to the point one I wrote for Goodreads last July:
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
Loved the camaraderie and caring these new friends have
I really liked the switch from usual cozies to a male protagonist. James is so sweet and I was really happy he and Lucy hit it off. All of these weight loss friends were awesome and were just depicted as people anyone would be happy to have as friends. The mystery was well told and I had no idea who the killer was. The ending had me wondering how the friends were going to get the better of the perp but it worked out great. I would definitely be interested in reading the next in the series.
