February book club call out: Fly In, Fly Out by Georgina Penney

We heard your comments last month so for this month of our book club we thought we'd go a little bit lighter after the darkness of our last book (you can read my review here). We're also going to give you a little more time to read the books this time around so you'll have four weeks to read it and then come back here and jot down your thoughts in the comments section.

Once again let me know if you have any requests for genres or if there are any new books coming out this year that you'd like to read and discuss and we'll add them to the list. I'm looking forward to discussing this one with you guys!

Our February pick is Fly In, Fly Out by Georgina Penney

After months working on an oil rig in the Atlantic Ocean, engineer Jo Blaine can't wait to get home. Her job is tough, and she is desperate for some long-overdue girl time. When she walks through her front door to find an unexpected man in her house, she's tempted to head straight back out to sea.
 
Stephen Hardy has always felt guilty for the part he played in ruining Jo's life and forcing her to leave home years earlier and jumps at the chance to make amends.  It takes some fast talking, but he finally convinces Jo to let him look after her apartment and her giant cranky cat while she's away on the rig — and by the time she leaves for her next shift, they're both eagerly anticipating her return.

But balancing family and friends with a new relationship when you're never around is tricky, and Jo is also keeping secrets about her past.  After a lifetime of taking care of herself, Jo isn't used to sharing her problems — especially when they involve her messy family history. Picking up the pieces every time she comes home is getting harder, and Jo begins to wonder if a fly-in fly-out lifestyle is really worth it ...
