The Thursday Night Club - Steven Manchester

4 Stars!

ABOUT THE BOOK -
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.

MY THOUGHTS -
Nice, sweet, quick read with Great characters.

"Sorry I'm late guys," He said, "but I broke down on the way over here."
Oh no," Izzy said, concerned.
Kevin smirked. "My car's fine," he grinned. "It's just that a really sad song came on the radio and I had to pull over to the side of the road and have myself a good cry." - OMG that happens to me all the time!
I have read almost all of Steven's books and they all make you think and end up making you feel good, with maybe a tear in you eye. This is a nice Christmas read without being overly Christmassy, if you know what I mean.
Thanks Steven for sending me this e-book for my honest review.
