"M.J. Stark’s life is picture-perfect—she has her dream job as a magazine editor, a sexy doctor boyfriend, and a glamorous life in New York City. But behind her success, there is a debilitating sense of loneliness. So when her boss betrays her and her boyfriend offers her a completely new life in California, she trades her cashmere for caftans and gives it a try. Once there, M.J. is left to fend for herself in a small beach town, with only the company of her elderly neighbor, Gloria, and an ocean that won’t shut up. One afternoon, M.J. discovers that Gloria has suddenly moved to Paris with her friends to honor a fifty-year-old pact. And in lieu of a goodbye, she’s left a mysterious invitation to a secret club—one that only reads erotic books. Curious, M.J. accepts and meets the three other hand-selected club members. As they bond over naughty bestsellers and the shocking letters they inherited from the original club members, the four strangers start to divulge the intimate details of their own lives… and as they open up, they learn that friendship might just be the key to rewriting their own stories: all they needed was to find each other first"

Interesting and cute story about a group of women with stories (private and not so much) to tell. Books that have changed lives for these women and to share them with others and keep it going years and years later. Impressive and interesting. I wouldn't so mind being a part of such a lovely gathering of die hard readers as well.

I would have much rather followed the adventures of the ladies from the 1960s over the contemporary tale, but I abandoned it. It just felt sort of redundant, like a blending of so many lady book tropes, but nothing new offered to keep you interested.
