Reader Review: Saturday Night at the Lakeside Supper Club

Saturday Night at the Lakeside Supper Club by J. Ryan Stradal book coverThe book “Saturday Night at the Lakeside Supper Club” covers four generations of women and how The Lakeside Supper Club shaped their relationships. Each chapter gives you insight into the individual women, as the book spans the events of several decades.

What I love most about J. Ryan Stradal as an author is the amount of meaning and importance he can put in scenes and words that aren’t even written down. His style is so unique that the parts of the story he doesn’t write are just as vivid and meaningful as the sections he chooses to include.

His love for the Midwest shows in his incredible characters, the towns he invents, and the amazing food. The characters and events are relatable, honest, and heartbreaking. Grab a relish tray and a brandy old fashioned… and do yourself a favor by reading this book!

Three words that describe this book: Food, Family, Nostalgia

You might want to pick this book up if: You are in the mood for a funny and quirky family drama that makes you feel right at home in its Midwest setting.
