Recommenders: Rebecca Smith and Jodie’s friend Clare, (who is originally from England.)
Facilitator: Rebecca Smith
Comments from Rebecca: “I can recommend a really good book – “The Thursday Murder Club” by Richard Osman. Fiction. Lots of twists & turns and dry humor. Very clever. “
Comments from Jodie’s friend Clare: Clare tells me that the author is a very popular comedian in the U.K., and while this is his first novel, the book is apparently taking the U.K. by storm… It is now a best seller in England. The readers are begging him for more, so the author is now working on a sequel, expected to be out later in 2021.
