She has a few books out under the name Madeleine Wickman. I just read The Wedding Girl and I bought Cocktails for Three.
OK I need your opinion. I just bought 3 books and I am not sure which one I want to read first.
Terry Goodkind â€œFaith of the Fallenâ€ â€“ Good 800 page book
Madeleine Wickman â€œCocktails for Threeâ€ â€“ Will be able to finish over the weekend
Stieg Larsson â€œGirl With the Dragon Tattooâ€ â€“ It has been a while since I read a mystery
What do you think?
Probably Girl with the Dragon Tattoo. Terry Goodkind is my favorite but then you'll want the next one after that. Haha.

Well, you can put one of those books in the hat and it might get chosen!

I have an excel spreadsheet with everyone's name who is in the BC. Then everyone recommends a book and then there's a website that randomly chooses a number and I put the books with a number and that's how we choose the book. Or I think last time the person whose book was chosen can choose the number for the next time but I think that takes longer. Then after we choose the book we pick a deadline and when the deadline gets here we open the discussion floor to discuss the book.

"Mikael Blomkvist, a once-respected financial journalist, watches his professional life rapidly crumble around him. Prospects appear bleak until an unexpected (and unsettling) offer to resurrect his name is extended by an old-school titan of Swedish industry. The catch--and there's always a catch--is that Blomkvist must first spend a year researching a mysterious disappearance that has remained unsolved for nearly four decades. With few other options, he accepts and enlists the help of investigator Lisbeth Salander, a misunderstood genius with a cache of authority issues."
Hope that helps!!
