For my 'other' vote, I want to suggest the first book in the Mercy Thompson series by Patricia Briggs, Moon Called.



I could definitely go for Moon Called.  It would be a reread for me, but it was very good.

I just stopped by to try and figure out this whole book club thing.  I've done buddy reads before and one book club...

Oh, but in looking at the dates on this thread, I guess there isn't a book club going anymore...or it moved...must look around some more I guess.

I'd like to suggest Round Robin by Joseph Flynn as a Book Klub selection.
The novel has, in Round Robin Phinney, a strong female character who in order to save her home sanctuary must let down some of the walls she has built around herself. Robin is an emotionally cautious character who, when confronted with unlikely and needy strangers, is forced to reexamine how she views herself and her relationships. As readers, we experience her turmoil, her defiance and the gradual appearance of her true self. It's a wonderful, humorous and poignant story that I've read about four times and would love to discuss with other readers.
