Welcome to the quirky town of Cherico, Mississippi, where potluck meetings at the local library provide a feast for mind and stomach alike. If some folks had their way, the Cherico library would have shut down long ago. Councilman Durden Sparks aims to divert funding to a cause dear to his heart—and his wallet. With the aid of gumption and good friends, librarian Maura Beth Mayhew has finagled a one-year reprieve, and the burgeoning book club is raising the library’s profile one mouthwatering meeting at a time. But more members mean more opinions. While the Forrest Gump-themed shrimp dishes are a universal hit, meetings don’t always go according to plan. Between spirited debate over book choices and surprising revelations and relationship hiccups—including Maura Beth’s fledgling romance—there’s a lot to discuss. And just when bad luck threatens to finish the library for good, the Cherry Cola Book Club may learn that the best stories have twists—and heroes—you never expected.

About the Author

Ashton Lee was born in historic Natchez, Mississippi, into a large, extended Southern family which gave him much fodder for his fiction later in life. His father, who wrote under the pen name of R. Keene Lee after WWII, was an editor and writer in New York of what is now called pulp fiction. As a result, Ashton inherited a love of reading and writing early on and did all the things aspiring authors are supposed to do, including majoring in English when he attended the University of the South, affectionately known as Sewanee. Ashton lives in Oxford, MS.
