Read: The Late Bloomers' Club

One of my 2019 New Year's resolutions is to read two books per month, 24 for the year. I am about to start book #20, and feeling confident I will smash this goal! 

I just finished The Late Bloomers' Club by Louise Miller, a book I absolutely adored. I discovered it while browsing the tables at Porter Square Books in Cambridge, MA. It's cheery cover caught my attention, and after reading the first five pages, I decided to add it to my basket. 

The Late Bloomers' Club

The story is set in the small town of Guthrie, VT; a place where everyone knows each other, attends town meetings religiously, and notices any newcomers within seconds of their arrival. Guthrie hosts annual events like the Corn and Tomato Festival and the Fall Harvest Dinner, each one meticulously planned for by the entire town. It reminded me so much of Stars Hollow, CT, the setting of the TV show Gilmore Girls

The protagonist, Nora Huckleberry, runs the town diner. The restaurant was opened by her parents, and after their passing, she took over. Her younger sister, Kit, blows in and out of town, usually fleeing to work on a film production. 

The sisters are brought back to together when Peggy Johnson, the town's cake lady, passes away suddenly in a car accident. In her will, she leaves her enormous plot of land to Nora and Kit. A big box store, HG, is anxious to make an offer, putting Nora in the hot seat to make a decision that would impact the whole town. 

What follows is a story of self-discovery for Nora, the repairing of a frayed bond between sisters, and an unlikely romance between Nora and the salesman trying to move HG into Guthrie. 

I loved this book. I felt like a resident of Guthrie. I found myself reading it in the morning and at night, anxious to see what would happen with my favorite townspeople. 

Miller is also the author of The City Baker's Guide to Country Living, which is also set in Guthrie. I'm going to add that to my list as well and will share my thoughts once I've finished. 

Tell me, have you read anything great this summer?
