The Club

The Club - Jane Heller Fun! Dated, but fun. The story would have to be reworked in today's world of cellphones and 24/7 access. The story and characters were interesting, I really enjoyed the peek into the 1990's publishing world and golf clubs I'll only dream about joining. There were a lot of predictable plot points, however they were mitigated by a couple of nice surprises. And if no one else wants it, may I please have that home in CT?
