The Fifth Avenue Story Society

amazon barnes & noble Christianbook.com Goodreads

An invitation to join The Fifth Avenue Story Society gives five New York strangers a chance to rewrite their own stories.

Executive assistant Lexa is eager for a much-deserved promotion, but her boss is determined to keep her underemployed.

Literature professor Jett is dealing with a broken heart, as well as a nagging suspicion his literary idol, Gordon Phipps Roth, might be a fraud.

Uber driver Chuck just wants a second chance with his kids.

Aging widower Ed is eager to write the true story of his incredible marriage.

Coral, queen of the cosmetics industry, has broken her engagement and is on the verge of losing her great grandmother’s multimillion-dollar empire.

When all five New Yorkers receive an anonymous, mysterious invitation to the Fifth Avenue Story Society, they suspect they’re victims of a practical joke. No one knows who sent the invitations or why. No one has heard of the literary society. And no one is prepared to reveal their deepest secrets to a roomful of strangers.

Yet curiosity and loneliness bring them back week after week to the old library. And it’s there they discover the stories of their hearts, and the kind of friendship and love that heals their souls.

Hott Review:

Redemption. Forgiveness. Honesty. Life is difficult. It’s sad. It’s painful. But when a group of five meandering people are invited to a story society at a private library they almost miss the chance to grow. Step into The Fifth Avenue Story Society and follow their journey to healing.

What I liked: The Fifth Avenue Story Society is an inspiring story of a group of five people who all need to heal. Their journey is emotional and tense, but ultimaley hopeful.

What I didn’t like: At times the switch between characters was confusing. It was well marked and flowed well, but because we were intimate with five characters and each had several supporting characters it can be difficult to keep everyone straight. However, to be fair, most of the things I didn’t like about The Fifth Avenue Story Society were because I received an ARC eBook. I KNOW formatting issues can be distracting and that this is something that will be corrected in production, but it did cause me o be distracted at times.
