I’m a little conflicted about this novel which I wanted to like more than I do. There are three main characters, Angela,a retired teacher and leader of the book club, Lissy, a socialite with a reading disability and Michelle, a part-time maid in Lissy’s home. Each has a compelling story, with perhaps too much exposition, each is influenced by one of the books that the Page Turners club is reading. The happy endings are both satisfying and too coincidental.
