A convicted killer. A gifted thief. A vicious ganglord. A disillusioned cop. Gathering Dark has all the elements of a truly gripping thriller… and so much for a book club to chew on! Candice Fox’s newest book has all of her signature touches – quirky characters, twists and turns, page-turning action, and, of course, an adorable animal cameo. Get your own book club together with these tips for an unforgettable gathering.
What to drink:
Los Angeles is the birthplace of the juice craze, so why not go all the way with a healthy green juice? Here’s one we like a lot right now:
- 3 Granny Smith apples, quartered
- 2 lemons, peeled
- 4 cups chopped kale leaves
- 1 handful mint leaves
- 1 celery rib
Add to an electric juicer or blender and juice! Serve over ice.
If your book club is of the boozy variety, you can’t go wrong with a California wine. Dark Horse rosé is a great option under $20. And let’s not forget that Trader Joe’s good old Two-Buck Chuck is a California wine as well!
What to eat:
Los Angeles is home to too many iconic dishes to count. We’re suggesting this take on Bulgogi tacos to keep everyone’s mouth watering. You also can’t go wrong with your own spins on iconic LA places like Pink’s Hot Dogs, Randy’s Donuts, or the House of Pies.
What to listen to:
A book about four tough women living on the fringes of society coming together to save a missing girl? This calls for Joan Jett and the Runaways!

What to read next:
From the gleaming streets of Beverly Hills to the eccentric characters of Venice Beach, L.A. is a perfect setting for a crime thriller. If you’re still California dreamin’, we suggest L.A. Outlaws by T. Jefferson Parker, Devil in a Blue Dress by Walter Mosley, Land of Shadows by Rachel Howzell Hall, and Dead West by Matt Goldman.
