Don’t fall over, I’ve read two in the same series in a row again 😉 This one is the second book in the Supper Club series by Ellery Adams, currently undergoing revisions to reflect the author using her Ellery Adams name now on the series instead of JB Stanley. I voluntarily read and reviewed this copy that I received from NetGalley and the publisher. I liked the first two books so much I did buy the third one and I look to get the others as well.

My Goodreads review:
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
I’m loving this series so much I couldn’t stop with the first book. This book was just as amazing and the Flab Five even got to add a couple of new friends to the mix. I loved how once they got their weight loss programs back under control, they all gained the confidence they’d been needing. Things were getting better between James and his dad, Jackson. Lucy was working very hard to help out the sheriff’s department and hopefully get to take the deputy exam soon.
It was late spring and the whole town of Quincy’s Gap was abuzz with excitement when new citizen Willy opened up his Polar Pagoda. There was also a new fitness program in town and he and the owner definitely didn’t see eye to eye. Also some of the townspeople weren’t very happy with Willy’s shop for selling what they said was a suggestive t-shirt saying on a shirt. Did one of these people decided to burn the place down, leaving a body there? Another body eventually turned up as well so the friends had their jobs cut out for them. As in the first book, they all worked together so well as both a weight loss and a mystery solving team.
I thought the Spring Fling sounded like a lot of fun! I really admire the 20-something Fitzgerald twins, Francis and Scott, who work for James, for their innovative ideas for fund raising. This was for some new computers and printers. The Fling was a huge success! I was so happy that Jackson Henry was beginning to act more like a real father to James now. He still didn’t want to talk about his art but apparently he was becoming successful and was willing to have some improvements done on their home.
I liked these first two books so much I bought the third and am thinking of starting it soon!
