The Ghost at the Table by Suzanne Berne

I found The Ghost at the Table as one of the book club books my local library carries in their "Book Club Bags". The title intrigued me and some of my best finds have been random books off random lists I've tumbled upon.

The basic plot of this book was interesting. It was about two sisters and the extremely entangled relationship they have with their father and takes place over Thanksgiving. One of the elements I enjoy most in both books and movies is when they take place over a short amount of time (Gone with the Wind being one huge exception).

While The Ghost at the Table is not going to make any of my top ten lists, I very much enjoyed reading it. It was a nicely crafted story and very well written. The sister's dynamic was very unique and complicated. There were no "twists and turns" but the plot was great.

The Ghost at the Table may be a little deep for some as a "beach read", but I happen to think it would be a great easy read for a vacation, plane ride or just an everyday read.

On a more housekeeping note, I am looking for book recommendations! I would love to hear from some of my lovely followers what they would like me to read next. As you may be able to tell from my previous reads, I have very eclectic tastes. Have you read anything good lately?


  1. You should read Wicked Business by Janet Evanovich. It is an awesome read, as well as her Stephanie Plum series, these books literally make me LOL!

  2. I will check it out! Thanks Dee!

  4. Hello Sarah,

    Wow, the book title is really appealing enough for me. I will check this one out. Thanks for the review!

    If you love a good murder mystery, then you must read Murder & Mayhem In Goose Pimple Junction by Amy Metz. It will be released in August - this year!
