ABOUT THE NEW BOOK: In this uplifting Novel from The New York Times Bestselling Author of The Story of Arthur Truluv, good friends discover that the things we fear revealing to others can be the very things that bring us closer together.

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 The 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, readers will find friendship, community, and kindness on full display.
