(Book #54) Linda hosted and started us out with the very fun Gin Slings mentioned in the book! She offered an assortment of English cheeses for appetizers and served and incredible beef bourguignon with noodles and a salad. For dessert Linda baked a delicious Apple Strudel. All eleven of us were in attendance and most really enjoyed the book, though Sharon felt that the style of the book could have been born out of not knowing where she wanted the story to go! We joked about how she may have pulled discarded drafts from her waste basket when her deadline was at hand.
