The Ladies of High Tea Book Club
Event Location: EL Lowder Regional Library
Intended Audience: Adults
Description:  The Ladies of High Tea will be reading the book I Still Dream about You by Alabama’s own Fannie Flagg.
Summary: I Still Dream About You is a comic mystery romp through the streets of Birmingham, Alabama, past, present, and future.  Meet Maggie Fortenberry, a still beautiful former Miss Alabama. To others, Maggie’s life seems practically perfect—she’s lovely, charming, and a successful agent at Red Mountain Realty. Still, Maggie can’t help but wonder how she wound up living a life so different from the one she dreamed of as a child. But just when things seem completely hopeless, and the secrets of Maggie’s past drive her to a radical plan to solve it all, Maggie discovers, quite by accident, that everybody, it seems, has at least one little secret.  I Still Dream About You is a wonderful novel that is equal parts southern charm, murder mystery, and that perfect combination of comedy and old-fashioned wisdom that can be served up only by America’s own remarkable Fannie Flagg. ~~from amazon.com~~

The Ladies of High Tea Book Club
Event Location: EL Lowder Regional Library
Intended Audience: Adults
Description:  The Ladies of High Tea will be reading the book Friends, Lovers, and Chocolate by Alexander McCall Smith.  This is the second in the Isabel Dalhousie series set in Edinburgh, Scotland.
Summary: When Isabel is asked to cover for vacationing Cat at her delicatessen, Isabel meets a man with a most interesting problem. He recently had a heart transplant and is suddenly haunted by memories of events that never happened to him.  The situation piques her insatiable curiosity: Could the memories be connected with the donor’s demise? Naturally, Isabel’s friend Jamie thinks it is none of Isabel’s business. Meanwhile, Grace, Isabel’s housekeeper, has become infatuated with a man at her spiritualist meeting, and Cat brings home an Italian lothario. That makes for some particularly tricky problems–both practical and philosophical–for Isabel to unravel in this enormously engaging and highly unusual mystery.~~from amazon.com~~
