In this uplifting novel from the New York Times bestselling author of The Story of Arthur Truluv, good friends discover that the things we fear revealing to others can be the very things that bring us closer together. When a group of friends in Mason, Missouri, decide to start a monthly supper club, they get more than they bargained for. The plan for congenial evenings--talking, laughing, and sharing recipes, homemade food, and wine--abruptly changes course one night when one of the women reveals something startlingly intimate. The supper club then becomes Confession Club, and the women gather weekly to share not only dinners, but embarrassing misdeeds, deep insecurities, and long-held regrets. They invite Iris Winters and Maddy Harris to join, and their timing couldn't be better. Iris is conflicted about her feelings for a charming but troubled man, and Maddy has come back home from New York to escape a problem too big to handle alone. The club offers exactly the kind of support they need to help them make some difficult decisions. The Confession Club is charming, heartwarming, and inspiring. And as in the previous books that take place in Mason, readers will find friendship, community, and kindness on full display.… (mais)

Ah, Elizabeth Berg. You are my literary crush. Your books are so full of joy and life's quandaries. This one was no different and my only regret is that I just "discovered" you...but this is good as well because you have a long, glorious backlist. Another one down. Devoured more or less on audio that you read, which is also wonderful. ( )

A return to Mason, Missouri, the home of Arthur Truluv. Iris is living in the home Maddie inherited from Arthur & Lucille and continues to teach the baking classes begun by Lucille. Maddie has returned from NYC with Nola, but no Matthew.

Iris and Maddie join a group of women who call themselves The Confession Club where the women share their flaws and dark secrets (IMO an unlikely thing in a small town where secrets are not easily kept).

John Loney, a homeless man arrives from Chicago and squats in an abandoned farmhouse. Iris meets him when she stops to cut overgrown lilacs at the house. Romance ensues, though John has many issues relating to an abusive father and PTSD as a Viet Nam veteran.

In typical Mason, Missouri fashion, all's well that ends well. This time no one dies. ( )

The Story of Arthur Truluv #1 (2017)
Night of Miracles #2 (2018)
This is the third book of the Mason series.
————————
I received this digital ARC from NetGalley and Random House in exchange for an unbiased review.

With characters gathered from the prior two novels, a group of women from Iris’s cooking class organize a group for “confessions”. They rotate their meetings and serve a dinner appropriate for the occasion. Each night to dedicated to a particular member who can share a secret or concern to unburden herself. The group’s goal is offer confidential support and advice to their fellow members.

The story continues as Maddy Harris returns from New York where she needs a respite from her busy life. She moves in with Iris Winters who has since begun to care for the house in her absence. Iris has continued with the cooking lessons started by her friend and mentor Lucille. The group decides to allow Maddy and Iris into their exclusive group where support and understanding are the ingredients for their recipe of friendship. ( )

I had no idea thst there was a 2nd, or that there was this 3rd book in this series. I'm so glad I paid attention and realized. I have really enjoyed this series. ( )

Lovely story about women who teach us about listening, telling our story, and friendship. Can be read as a stand alone, although, I highly recommend the first in the series "The Story of Arthur Trulov". ( )
