Summary
USA TODAY BESTSELLER * An uplifting novel about friendship, surprising revelations, and a second chance at love, from the New York Times bestselling author of The Story of Arthur Truluv .

When a group of friends in Mason, Missouri, decide to start a monthly supper club, they get more than they bargained for. The plan for congenial evenings--talking, laughing, and sharing recipes, homemade food, and wine--abruptly changes course one night when one of the women reveals something startlingly intimate. The supper club then becomes Confession Club, and the women gather weekly to share not only dinners but embarrassing misdeeds, deep insecurities, and long-held regrets.

They invite Iris Winters and Maddy Harris to join, and their timing couldn't be better. Iris is conflicted about her feelings for a charming but troubled man, and Maddy has come back home from New York to escape a problem too big to handle alone. The club offers exactly the kind of support they need to help them make some difficult decisions.

The Confession Club is charming, heartwarming, and inspiring. And as in the previous books that take place in Mason, readers will find friendship, community, and kindness on full display.

Advance praise for The Confession Club

"[A] feel-good testament to taking risks, falling love, and reinvention . . . Berg effortlessly wraps her arms around this busy universe of quirky characters with heartbreaking secrets and unflagging faith. . . . Readers new to Berg's Mason will be dazzled by this bright and fascinating story, and fans will be cheering for the next volume." -- Publishers Weekly

Booklist Review: "In most small towns secrets are hard to keep, but in Mason, Missouri, a unique group of friends has decided to embrace this idea to its fullest. A few women gather weekly to divulge their regrets, secrets, embarrassments, and sins in the safety of their Confession Club a sort of book club without the books. Each woman's life is the story of the week, and within the bonds of this sisterhood there is no judgment, only support. When new Mason residents Iris and Maddy join the club, they have very different stories to share but both soon find exactly what they seek. Berg (Night of Miracles, 2018) is a natural storyteller, and creates a genuine group of women, old friends and new, for readers to cozy up to. Even minor characters come to life with sincerity and charm. The Confession Club shows that family doesn't have to be defined in the traditional sense, home isn't always where we expect it to be, and the love of friends is all we really need.--Melissa Norstedt Copyright 2010 Booklist"

Publisher's Weekly Review: "Berg (The Story of Arthur Truluv) returns to Mason, Mo., for this feel-good testament to taking risks, falling in love, and reinvention. Here, the focus is on the irrepressible members of a monthly club of eight women ranging in age from 20s to 80s, who bare their fibs, sins, and shame. "They knew they were mostly silly," Berg writes. "They enjoyed being silly, because sometimes you just needed to take a load off." The heart of this story belongs to cooking school teacher Iris, who's "coming into my fifties," divorced and childless when she falls in love with John, 66, a homeless Vietnam vet still haunted by the war and the wife and child he left behind. Berg effortlessly wraps her arms around this busy universe of quirky characters with heartbreaking secrets and unflagging faith. "We forget how ready people are to help," 47-year-old "stout and practical" club member Toots says, adding: "To say those words to yourself or another, 'I forgive you'? Most powerful words in the world." Readers new to Berg's Mason will be dazzled by this bright and fascinating story, and fans will be cheering for the next volume set there. Agent: Suzanne Gluck, WME Entertainment. (Nov.)"
