The Thursday Night Club: A Tale of Christmas Spirit - Steven Manchester

The Thursday Night Club by Steven Manchester
Wanted to read this book as it's one I've yet to read by the author. All his other works I have totally enjoyed.
Summary of the book makes me think I would join the club... 3 college boys and 2 girls and the guys have agreed to a bet, who is the funniest one there. Some of the pranks are great, took a lot of time and effort and some are tame-filling out job application for one of the other boys.
When tragedy strikes they are reminiscing with a professor and realize they have choices to commemorate his life. At his death he won't be remembered for what he owned, but for what he contributed.. In honor of the boys good deeds the 4 remaining come up with another wager, whoever
does the most good til Christmas, wins the pot and it has to be done anonymously, as he had done with his charity work.
Loved hearing of all the opportunities they are involved with-so many are ones I also have selected over the years. They still meet every Thursday to play cards and talk...the purpose.
Other works by the author are summarized at the end.
I received this book from the author in exchange for my honest review.
