If your book club hasn’t read, When Calls the Heart, I recommend it for a light-hearted read. I decided to read When Calls the Heart by Janette Oke after watching the Hallmark series by the same name. (Maybe I watch too much Hallmark–is that a thing?)

If you love Hallmark as much as I do, then you should check out this post and this post. Both feature books you’re sure to love if you love small-town, sweet romances.

Anyway, it isn’t a new book, but it’s by Janette Oke, and I am a fan of her Love Comes Softly series, too. Check out my post about that book, here.

This book will remind you of simpler and slower times in this fast-paced world of ours, and sometimes it’s good to remember to slow down. There’s still plenty to discuss within the pages, and I’ve provided book club questions and a tasty recipe for blueberry coffee cake as well! So if you’re looking for food ideas and more for your book club’s meeting about When Calls the Heart, keep reading!

I read At Home in Mitford by Jan Karon last year as a purely pleasure read. Again, it isn’t a new book, but if your book club hasn’t read it, I recommend you give it a read. The cast of characters and the small town of Mitford created by Jan Karon reminded me of home and offered a bit of hope in the human spirit in these times. Even though it is a feel-good read, there is still plenty to discuss and I’ve provided questions and a delicious recipe below, so if you’re looking for food ideas for your meeting, keep reading!

Hallmark also made a movie out of At Home in Mitford, but I’ve yet to see it. I know Hallmark can capture small town milieu better than anyone, so I’m sure it’s great. I hope to watch it soon!

If you love romances, be sure to check out the other featured romances here including Outlander, Love Comes Softly, and more! In addition, check out this lengthy list of books that you’ll love if you love Hallmark Christmas movies (or really any of their romances)! There’s also a companion post that features EVEN more!

Ahhh, The Notebook by Nicholas Sparks. The love story to end all love stories. I decided to reread this one when Netflix picked up the movie, reminding us all of it’s timelessness.

If your book club hasn’t read it yet, do it NOW! It’s short and sweet. You’ll need tissues. It’s a nice reprieve from more serious topics, if you’ve been reading heavier books lately. Plus, there’s nothing like the story of first love.

If you’ve read The Notebook, but love romance, check out some of the other posts featuring romances including Outlander, Love Comes Softly, and The Rosie Project. Below I have provided food ideas and a recipe for The Notebook, plus discussion questions.
