Costco Book Club:

9781501100710_ab64cThe Costco Book Club is back with Amy E. Reichert’s The Coincidence of Coconut Cake (S&S/Gallery Books; Tantor Audio; OverDrive Sample), in the April issue of COSTCO Connection, summarizing the plot as “Lou (short for Louella), a fledgling restaurateur, and Al, a restaurant critic who writes under a pseudonym … meet after Al writes a mean-spirited review of Lou’s restaurant. Having agreed not to talk about work, neither realizes who the other is – until romance is already in bloom.” Publisher S&S calls it “You’ve Got Mail meets How to Eat a Cupcake.” Costco also offers recipes by the author.

Based on circulation in libraries we checked, it should be a popular choice.  Holds are still very respectable at several systems, nearly a year after pub. date.

Also in the April issue, is the newest pick from Costco book buyer Pennie Clark Ianniciello. While confessing she does not often highlight a thriller, she has high praise for Harlan Coben’s Fool Me Once (PRH/Dutton; Brilliance Audio; OverDrive Sample), saying, “His writing is sharp, the suspense is palpable and he laces it all with read emotion.”

The book is already a best seller, and as we mentioned earlier in the week, set to be a movie produced by and starring Julia Roberts.
