Publisher's Summary

Librarian Janet Johnson is puzzled when she is invited - and practically dragged - to her first meeting of the Rejected Writers' Book Club. This quirky group of women would much rather celebrate one another's rejected manuscripts over cups of tea and slices of lemon cake than actually publish a book. But good friends are exactly what Janet needs after moving to the small town of Southlea Bay, Washington. Just as the ladies are about to raise a teacup to their five hundredth rejection letter, they receive bad news that could destroy one member's reputation - and disband the group forever. To save the club, Janet joins her fellow writers on a wild road trip to San Francisco in search of the local publisher who holds the key to a long-buried secret. As they race to the finish line, they'll face their fears - landslides, haunted houses, handsome strangers, ungrateful children - and have the time of their lives.

    "Adorable"

    Sometimes you come across a book that just touches you. As a writer this was one of those books. Rich in warm likable characters that charmed you, made you laugh out loud. Found myself just simply enjoying the journey these ladies took me on. Warm and fresh and different.

    "Too silly"

    Although there were some funny times, most was just plain silly. I wouldn't recommend this book.

    "Loved this book."

    At first I thought that this book was not for me. Sometimes social discomfort just isnt for me but I fell I love with the characters quickly after that. Their adventure didn't make me question their intelligence; it was all possible and charming. It definitely is for 40 and older. Especially if you have that daughter. Enjoy. It is a fun trip!

    "Rejected writers go on a very funny road trip"

    I love this book. It is uplifting because it is humorous in a kind and gentle way. All of the ladies and Janet's husband are so lovable, even Doris and Ethel. This is exactly the kind of fun fiction that I am always looking for. To think that it was almost missed buying the kindle book and audible narration of this wonderful book. I was listening to an audio of a book by another author whose books I always buy. I really liked the voice of the narrator, Tanya Eby, on that other book. Actually, I loved her voice. So I searched by narrator for more audible books narrated by Tanya Eby and I found this book and audio.

    This is chick lit for old chicks. Not a romance per se but a humorous road trip with a strangely lovable group of women.

    In the end, the only question I have is: did Janet's husband Milton get rabies from a wild raccoon or from Raccoon the cat? I will never know.

    "Rejected writers please reunite"

    loved it! It started out slow. Had I been reading the book I may have put it down. I was listening while I was sewing so I am more tolerant. I laughed so hard at times tears ran down my face. I love these women and wanted more when I finished the book

    "Whiny spineless main character"

    Main character liked being a spineless victim. I had a real problem getting through this. I have stopped listening to other books for less. A long car drive and the fact it was a change to listen to a book where there was a story centered around something other than murder was a break. Give this character a backbone and maybe I will try, if this becomes a series, again. I will never again try a new series without listening to the sample first.

    "Waste of time"
    What disappointed you about The Rejected Writers' Book Club?

    Made it to Chapter 6 and gave up....very boring! Not a single character with whom I could identify.


    Has The Rejected Writers' Book Club turned you off from other books in this genre?

    YES!


    Would you listen to another book narrated by Tanya Eby?

    NO


    You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

    a few good one liners. Think author better as a stand up comedian

    "The reader is reads to you as if your a child"

    My advise is to keep looking for a book. This sounded good to me but I found it to be very disappointing. The reader reads to you as if you are sitting in a circle back in elementary school reading to you. Really I'm sorry--but this is a disappointment.

    "Amusing"

    The blurb tells you what it's about. I just figured that I needed something light to listen to after all the psychological thrillers I usually listen to. This was certainly entertaining. I definitely will not remember this book after I've read a few more of any genre. It was amusing but not one of my top books that's for sure.

    "Southern drawl..."
    Is there anything you would change about this book?

    I have to say this is not an inspiring story and it would have been listenable if it wasn't for the narrator's american drawl lasting for 8 hrs. I admit I struggled to get to the end favouring something more thrilling. In fact, I have 2 hours left to go and I don't think I'm going to make it... send help!!


    What was your reaction to the ending? (No spoilers please!)

    Never made it!


    What didn’t you like about Tanya Eby’s performance?

    Boring!


    Do you think The Rejected Writers' Book Club needs a follow-up book? Why or why not?

    Absolutely not!
