Book Club Kit for Ghosted by Rosie Walsh includes book club discussion guide and party menu.
When planning a book club meeting during February, it can be fun to choose a novel that takes an alternative spin on romance.
This month’s pick centers on an element of modern dating I confess I’m glad I did not have to experience back in college.

What is Ghosted About?
Here’s what Amazon had to say about the book:
“Seven perfect days. Then he disappeared. A love story with a secret at its heart.
When Sarah meets Eddie, they connect instantly and fall in love. To Sarah, it seems as though her life has finally begun. And it’s mutual: It’s as though Eddie has been waiting for her, too. Sarah has never been so certain of anything. So when Eddie leaves for a long-booked vacation and promises to call from the airport, she has no cause to doubt him. But he doesn’t call.
Sarah’s friends tell her to forget about him, but she can’t. She knows something’s happened–there must be an explanation.
Minutes, days, weeks go by as Sarah becomes increasingly worried. But then she discovers she’s right. There is a reason for Eddie’s disappearance, and it’s the one thing they didn’t share with each other: the truth.”

For the book club party menu, play off the romance theme of the book and serve some sweet nibbles.

Set out a bowl of candied nuts for munching as you chat about the book.
