We have a thriving book club here at Jaffé & Neale, which meets at 6.30pm on the last Wednesday of every month in Stow-on-the-Wold. There’s no membership, no charge, and no obligation to come every month, so if you like the sound of a particular book, and would like to informally discuss it over a glass of wine, we’d love to see you. Check this page for our current book titles. We also offer 10% off our book club choice in store.
We all have our own particular reading tastes, be it classical fiction, historical literature or gripping thrillers, but being a part of a book club allows us to step outside our reading comfort zone and explore other genres. Love it or hate it, there is always a discussion to be had. You never know, there may be a new favourite read among the chosen books….

Jeeves and the King of Clubs
by Ben Schott
Treason is afoot in the highest social circles. The very security of the nation is in peril. Jeeves, it transpires, has long been an agent of British Intelligence, but now His Majesty’s Government must turn to the one man who can help . . . Bertie Wooster.
In this magnificent new homage to P. G. Wodehouse, Ben Schott leads Jeeves and Wooster on an uproarious adventure of espionage through the secret corridors of Whitehall, the sunlit lawns of Brinkley Court, and the private clubs of St James’s.

All Among the Barley
by Melissa Harrison
The fields were eternal, our life the only way of things, and I would do whatever was required of me to protect it. The autumn of 1933 is the most beautiful Edie Mather can remember, though the Great War still casts a shadow over the cornfields of her beloved home, Wych Farm. When charismatic, outspoken Constance FitzAllen arrives from London to write about fading rural traditions, she takes an interest in fourteen-year-old Edie, showing her a kindness she has never known before.
But the older woman isn’t quite what she seems. As harvest time approaches and pressures mount on the whole community, Edie must find a way to trust her instincts and save herself from disaster.
