Every year at Christmastime, Marnie and her twelve closest girlfriends gather in the evening with batches of beautifully wrapped homemade cookies. Everyone has to bring a dessert and a bottle of wine, but this year, it’s their stories that are especially important. Marnie’s oldest daughter has a risky pregnancy. Jeannie’s father is having an affair with her best friend. Taylor’s life is in financial freefall. Rosie’s husband doesn’t want children, and she has to decide, very soon, the fate of her marriage.

On this evening, at least, they can feel as a group the impulses of sisterly love and conflict, the passion and hopefulness of a new romance, the betrayal and disillusionment some relationships bring, the joys and fears of motherhood, the agony of losing a child, and above all, the love they have for one another. As Marnie says, the Christmas Cookie Club, if it’s anything, is a reminder of delight.

    " I was a little disappointed with this book because I found keeping track and really feeling for 12 people was a bit difficult. I liked the idea of this format but the short glimpse of each women the readers receive is lacking in detail. I had a hard time following what they had in common or really caring. I think there were just too many mini portraits being drawn. Enjoyed the food facts and recipes however but feel like the story would have been better told about 8 friends! "

    " This book reminded me a lot of Angry Housewives Eating Bon Bons. Each chapter focused on a member of the Cookie Club and featured a recipe of the cookies she brought. It was a pretty fast and easy read. "
