About the book

The Messy Lives of Book People by Phaedra Patrick

Mother of two Liv Green barely scrapes by as a maid to make ends meet, often finding escape in a good book while daydreaming of becoming a writer herself. So she can’t believe her luck when she lands a job housekeeping for her personal hero, megabestselling author Essie Starling, a mysterious and intimidating recluse. The last thing Liv expected was to be the only person Essie talks to, which leads to a tenuous friendship.

But when Essie dies suddenly, a devastated Liv is astonished to learn of her last wish: for Liv to complete Essie’s final novel. But to do so Liv will have to step into Essie’s shoes, and as Liv begins to write, she uncovers secrets from the past that reveal a surprising connection between the two women–one that will change Liv’s own story forever…

      Hi Rosa, you have paid and are on the rsvp list. We haven’t decided if it is canceled yet. We will post on the Facebook page and email everyone who has rsvp’d later tonight

  2. Laura Stafford says:

    Hi all,
    Katie and I have decided to cancel tomorrow’s meeting just in case conditions deteriorate from Ian. Probably being over cautious but we want everyone to be safe. We’ll be posting October meeting info soon so check back.
    Unfortunately for those of you who bought tickets for September they do not roll over to October. Please reach out to me or Katie with any questions about that.
    Stay dry and see you in October!
