Thursday Night Club

~ I received no compensation and opinions are 100% my own or my family. ~

Synopsis (from Amazon): Five college friends, three men and two women, have been getting together every Thursday night to share humble meals and an abundance of laughter. But when tragedy takes one of them, leaving the others to question the fairness of life, the Thursday Night Club decides to embark on a contest in the memory of the generous spirit of their fallen brother. The objective of the contest is simple: whoever performs the kindest deed by Christmas night wins the pot – four quarters. And there are only two conditions: the benevolent deed must be anonymous, and it cannot cost a single penny to pull off.

As the four friends undertake the contest, the healing begins and they become inspired beyond their expectations. There might be a winner in this competition, but it is very clear there will be no losers.

A story of Christmas spirit that will strike a chord in your heart any time of year, The Thursday Night Club will make you look at the holiday season in new ways.

One (or more) Sentence Summary: What a great story and beautifully written.  A positive novel is so many ways.  A refreshing story about four college students that do amazing things in the memory of their friend who was tragically taken from them.  

Favorite Character(s):  All of them are my favorite characters.  I really can't just pick one as they are so special in their own way and do so much good.

Fast read/slow read:  Very fast.

Cover:  So calming and perfect.
