FEBRUARY BOOK CLUB PICK:
The Proposal, by Jasmine Guillory
Review by Friday Fiction Book Club host, Kyra Wilson Cook
This month, we're reading The Proposal, which is a warm and sunny romp through the lives of beautiful young people thrust into a silly situation. The story starts with writer Nikole, who has been suffering through a Dodgers game she is attending with her boyfriend of five months and his gaggle of bros. Unexpectedly, he tells her to look up at the Jumbotron, where "will you marry me, Nicole" is on display, her face broadcast in the stadium and on national television. When she rightly refuses, it goes viral for all the right reasons. Not to worry--a gorgeous, sports car driving, chef-quality cooking, family-oriented doctor is going to swoop in for the rescue (and the rebound). Can Nik handle it?
It's a bubbly book, filled with lively characters who will happily distract you from whatever wintry life you're living here in Massachusetts. Quick, accessible, and with moments of colorful wit, you'll enjoy this girlfriend getaway in the literary sunshine. This book is going to get a lot of attention in 2019. Wouldn't it be great if you are the first of your friends to read it?
