Book Club – This Month’s Pick

Our pick this month is Love Objects by Emily Maguire.

Nic is an amateur nail artist and fairy godmother to the neighbourhood’s stray cats. The person she’s closest to in the world is her beloved niece Lena, who she meets for lunch every Sunday. One day Nic fails to show up. When Lena travels to her aunt’s house to see if Nic’s all right, she gets the shock of her life, and sets in train a series of events that will prove cataclysmic for them both.
