Mango Bridge Club by Annette Corkhill is the humorous chronicle of the bridge club of the same name in the town of Mango. Along with a litany of other problems, bridge club president Daniel Haywood is about to contend with a councillor who wants to sell off the bridge club property to developers. With deals taking place behind closed doors, it seems bleak for the club members and their beloved game. Add in a host of colorful characters, a few disgruntled neighbors, and some confused animals, and the reader is left wondering what will happen to this eclectic group of bridge players.
I have to say, when I started I was slightly skeptical about reading a novel about a bridge club. However, I was dead wrong. I loved every character and crazy escapade of Mango Bridge Club. Miss Corkhill has created a unique storyline, and one can imagine people like those from the novel exist in real life! I loved the inner dialogue of all the characters, including the animals! It was a unique treat to giggle at the poor life of Bubbles 15 or Bear’s straightforward mindset. I would definitely recommend this novel to anyone who wants a laugh. I especially liked Daniel and Emily, and the little girl, Ella. She added a bit of childlike wonder to the entire crazy situation facing the bridge club. Mango Bridge Club by Annette Corkhill was a joy to read and review, and I hope she intends to write a sequel, so we can hear more about the adventures of this crazy bridge club!
