The Confession Club by Elizabeth Berg is the third instalment in the Arthur Truluv series. Reading the two previous novels would be helpful in becoming familiar with the characters. Speaking of characters, there are so many of them that the reader can be easily confused. Although I have been an avid reader of Elizabeth Berg novels, I feel that the last few seem overly charming and cute. A group of women in Mason, Missouri belong to a club where, each month, one of the members confesses to the other members some kind of secret or indiscretion or shameful tidbit. Hence the title of the book. Two new members, Iris and Mandy, join the group and are soon divulging their secrets. This idyllic small town is represented as having only kind, helpful, sympathetic and friendly inhabitants which, in the real world, we know is not always so. If you are looking for a quick and light read, this is the book for you.

When one member of your supper club reveals a very personal secret......

At the foundation this third Mason book is a club where women eat a satisfying home-cooked meal together (with a yummy dessert) and then one member confesses per week. The intimacy a group gains by investing in those two activities is well depicted in the narrative. Reading this series is almost as good as actually visiting a small town in the Bible belt. As the timeline advances we lose some dear characters like Arthur in Book 1 and Lucille in Book 2, but that gives others the opportunity to grow and engage our affections. Getting to spend more time with Iris, Maddy, and Nola was delightful. The addition of a homeless vet into this book was an opportunity to explore the continued fallout from Vietnam. I will look forward to a fourth book and hope we get a character like Arthur or Lucille to shine in the next one.

Sweet story with characters I'd be friends with. The camaraderie these women share is truly special. This third book in a series stands up on its own as well.
