If you’re looking for your book club’s next pick, your next vacation read, or just a stellar page-turner, the three novelists reading in this session will gladly help fill up your TBR list with some terrific reads that have New England settings, to boot. In Rival’s Break by bestselling author Carla Neggers, two FBI investigators head off on what should be a relaxing weekend on the Maine coast—but crime never takes a holiday. Lisa Duffy’s This Is Home focuses on an unlikely friendship arising among residents of a triple-decker in a fictional North Shore town. And you won’t want to miss Waisted, the latest novel by bestselling author Randy Susan Meyers; this darkly comic novel finds a pair of women seeking revenge when their Vermont weight-loss retreat and reality series goes horribly awry. Grab a coffee, a pastry, and a good friend for what’s sure to be a lively session of readings hosted by Robin Kall, host of the podcast Reading with Robin and the Cardigan Connection reading series.
