I have this one and wanted to get it read in time for the paperback release. Of course, it didn't quite happen that way. With such wide appeal I'm going to have to get to it soon.

Julie P.

My group is reading this one in March!


That gave me a chuckle! I thought it was a very good book!

Melissa C.

Hmm...I will admit to seeing this book around but not picking it up for some reason. Guess it is worth picking up! :) Thanks for the recommendation!

bermudaonion (Kathy)

Too funny! My local indie handsells this title, so I gave it to my sister for Christmas!

Jen - Devourer of Books

I listened to the audio of this book last year and it was absolutely lovely, a charming book that wasn't trying too hard to be charming.

Mari (Bookworm with a View)

too funny!

I have a copy of this book as well and an audio version. I will listen this year, hopefully soon.

I also have Saving Cee Cee which I need to read... I'm excited for the run in Watchung this weekend, once over I will have time to read again!

Have a great day!


LOVED Major Pettigrew. It was one of my favorites of 2010 and I hope it takes off in paperback. Fabulous.

Shannon McKenna Schmidt

Great book and many points for discussion. It's a seemingly quiet read with a lot of layers. And I always love a story set in the English countryside.


I started this book several months ago and returned it to the library unfinished. Sounds like I should give it another try.

Melissa Mc (Gerbera Daisy Mom)

I got it too! But for my birthday.


How funny, when something like that happens around here we just have to say Great Minds Think Alike. I started to listen to Maj. Pettigrew last month but then had to send the audio book back to the library. I'm next in line to get it and I can't wait.

Happy New Year, I hope you had a lovely holiday season and that you have a wonderful time in San Diego.

S. Krishna

That's so funny! I really enjoyed Major Pettigrew.


That's so funny. I just put my copy of this book
on my bookshelf this morning and thought; I must
read this soon! I'm proud to say it's a signed copy.


I just reviewed this book as it made the Indie Lit Fiction shortlist for 2010.

I'm not sure I would have read it had it not been nominated. I had to read it because I am a judge for that category and I must say, I was surprised at how much I enjoyed it.

Mrs. DeRaps

Oh, good! I've been wanting to read this...I'll have to suggest it to my book club!


I've been listening to the audiobook and absolutely loving it. Excellent narrator and the story is charming.


I see a Betsy-Tacy connection!


That does sound like a good book!

Carolina Book Stacks

That is so funny.. I just bought my a few weeks ago. I was wondering if it would be a good book club book, since our group is so picky. Hope Harper is the one for the imprint,so we could do this one...

Who is Book Club Girl?

  • Book Club Girl is: a member of a book club and an avid reader who spent most of her childhood immersed in a book, an English major who considered library school until she realized it was all about computers, so turned to publishing, where she now works (but she vows to talk about books from all over and not to simply flog those from her own house). She was single, lived in the city, met a man, moved to the 'burbs, and is now a wife, a stepmother, a mother, and in her spare time, a fledgling blogger dedicated to sharing great books, news and tips with book club girls everywhere.

My Review Policy

  • I review fiction and nonfiction that is appropriate for book clubs. This includes literary and some women's commercial fiction as well as memoir and narrative nonfiction. I do not review self-help, thrillers, mysteries, horror, or fantasy. I have a fondness for YA literature and while the blog is not devoted to it (well, except for my obsession with the Betsy-Tacy series), I will occasionally review some YA books. The best way to reach me to request a review is to email me at bookclubgirl AT gmail DOT com.
