Description

Have you vowed to wean yourself off Netflix and get some serious reading done this summer – then have a great chat about what you’ve read with an equally engaged group of book lovers? Do you have a few free Wednesdays this June, July and August?

This summer, join Calgary's hottest book club ever - the perfect threesome for book lovers! Over the course of the season, experience three evenings of mind-blowing conversations, each built around a book hand-picked by blogger and book-reviewer Anne Logan of ivereadthis.com.

Host Anne Logan

For Volume 3 of the Summer Reads Threesome, come prepared to delve into Kate Hilton's novel, Just Like Family, a witty and insightful exploration of the juggling demands of three husbands — a work husband, an almost husband and an ex-husband — and figuring out the true meaning of family.

About Just Like Family by Kate Hilton

Avery Graham has built a life that anyone would admire. She has a brilliant career as chief of staff to Peter Haines, the charismatic mayor of Toronto. She has a devoted partner in Matt, her live-in boyfriend of 14 years. And she has a loving family and deep friendships that stretch back to childhood summers at the cottage.

But when Matt proposes, Avery's past threatens to engulf her present. Can she contemplate a lifetime commitment to Matt after her disastrous first marriage to Hugh? And is Matt really the love of her life, when she has spent so much of it by Peter's side? Avery could use some good advice from the women who know her best, but her closest friends, Jenny and Tara, have drifted away over the years.

When a scandal erupts at city hall, Avery must overcome her deepest fears about love and loss, and discover what it means to be a family.
