Publisher's Summary

An uplifting novel about friendship, surprising revelations, and a second chance at love, from the New York Times best-selling author of The Story of Arthur Truluv.

When a group of friends in Mason, Missouri, decide to start a monthly supper club, they get more than they bargained for. The plan for congenial evenings - talking, laughing, and sharing recipes, homemade food, and wine - abruptly changes course one night when one of the women reveals something startlingly intimate. The supper club then becomes Confession Club, and the women gather weekly to share not only dinners but embarrassing misdeeds, deep insecurities, and long-held regrets.

They invite Iris Winters and Maddy Harris to join, and their timing couldn't be better. Iris is conflicted about her feelings for a charming but troubled man, and Maddy has come back home from New York to escape a problem too big to handle alone. The club offers exactly the kind of support they need to help them make some difficult decisions.

The Confession Club is charming, heartwarming, and inspiring. And as in the previous books that take place in Mason, listeners will find friendship, community, and kindness on full display.

Disappointing

Although the first book in the series was excellent, the sequels leave much to be desired. I do not recommend this one.

One long bore

Having returned three books already (due primarily to monotone readers) I decided to hang in there with this one and spent a few hours regretting it. The combination of a dull reader and failure to capitalize on what could have been an intriguing plot left me wanting. The targeted audience seemed to be elderly members of quilting bees. Pass on this one.

Narrator

The narrator was not very good. She made getting an interest in the book hard. I would like to return it! Very boring book reader

What a waste- author is narrator

I'm not going to be able to finish this. The author is the narrator and EVERYONE sounds the same. It is horrible. Why do authors think that they can narrate? Have requested the book from the library so I can finish.

A Delight

Interspersed with wisdom, humor and charm, The Confession Club is a must for Elizabeth Berg fans—and an absolute must for those who have not yet discovered this wonderful author.

Not the best

This is a great storyline however it gets lost with horrible, breathy reading. Usually enjoy Elizabeth Berg books….this was not one of them.

A story very seldom told

How mature women age is very seldom a topic found in a book. This story tells how a group of mature women of a certain age range, use their confession club to get things off of their chest. I guess this was a way to keep stress out of their lives by talking to each other about things that they either did wrong or things they felt guilty about or things that bothered them. These women, even though they were of varying ages, they loved their families and each other. They were normal women who still desired to be loved by someone special. Some of the things they talked about were downright funny and had me chuckling throughout even though I found the story a little slow and boring in the beginning. I'm glad I hung in there as I found the story very entertaining in the end, particularly the story of Iris and John. Do you think he came back? I think so and that's how I see it ending.

Disappointed

I was looking forward to reading this book by Ms Berg as I have enjoyed so many others but I found this story a bit disappointing. Perhaps it was because I listened to the book read by the author versus reading. At times the author read in almost a child like way voice which made it hard for me to focus on the story. As much as I want to finish this story I will put it on the shelf for now and move on.

not my favorite

It was. not very believable. The best part was the story of the children. I felt the character of John was pictured as younger but with a Vietnam time line he should have been very much older. This book was one I was able to sit outside curl up with my dogs and enjoy a book just for the sake of reading something that did not require much thinking. it's not like I don't recommend it it was just okay but a decent Saturday read.

Couldn't Finish

Book club read... It was hard to keep up with who was who. And so many weird side stories that were just odd. Performance was not the best. Another woman in the bookclub stated the narrator would sallow or inhale in the mic. You definitely heard it
