The Tuesday Night Survivors’ Club
Survivors’ Book Club Mystery, Book #1
Survivors become sleuths to find a missing member of their book club in new-age Sedona, Arizona . . .
Two things got Rarity Jones through her breast cancer treatments: friends and books. Now cancer-free, Rarity is devoting her life to helping others find their way through the maze to healing. She’s opened a bookstore focusing on the power of healing—Eastern medicine, Western medicine, the healing power of food, the power of meditation, and the importance of developing a support community. To that end, she’s also started the Tuesday Night Survivors book club. With its openness to new-age communities, Sedona, Arizona, is the perfect fit for Rarity’s bookstore and the tightly knit group.
But their therapeutic unity is disrupted when one of their members suddenly goes missing. Martha has always kept to herself, never opening up much of her personal life to the group. Now she’s nowhere to be found. With her car abandoned on a trail and her dog left with a friend, Rarity is sure something terrible has happened—but will she be able to uncover Martha’s secrets before it’s too late?
The characters are well developed and well rounded. Rarity is a cancer survivor and she decides to open a bookstore. Besides regular books she has books focusing on the power of healing. She has also started a book club so people can share their experiences as well as the book they read. When one of the members goes missing, Rarity and her best friend, Sam, have to figure out what is going on. She will also have help from the ladies in the book club.
The author is very talented in her descriptive writing and these descriptions pulled me into the story from the very beginning. The writing style flows smoothly and the book is an easy read. The mystery was well plotted and it kept me guessing throughout the entire book.
I would recommend this book to anyone who enjoys a well crafted cozy mystery. The book was a great beginning to the series and I cannot wait to find out what happens next in the series.
I voluntarily reviewed an ARC of this book provided by the publisher, Kensington Books, and NetGalley, which I greatly appreciate.
