THE DINNER LIST by Rebecca Serle & Giveaway



“We’ve been waiting for an hour.” That’s what Audrey says. She states it with a little bit of an edge, her words just bordering on cursive. That’s the thing I think first. Not: Audrey Hepburn is at my birthday dinner, but Audrey Hepburn is annoyed.”

At one point or another, we’ve all been asked to name five people, living or dead, with whom we’d like to have dinner. Why do we choose the people we do? And what if that dinner was to actually happen? These are the questions Rebecca Serle contends with in her utterly captivating novel, THE DINNER LIST (FlatironBooks), a story imbued with the same delightful magical realism as One Day, and the life-changing romance of Me Before You.

When Sabrina arrives at her thirtieth birthday dinner she finds at the table not just her best friend, but also three significant people from her past, and well, Audrey Hepburn. As the appetizers are served, wine poured, and dinner table conversation begins, it becomes clear that there’s a reason these six people have been gathered together.

Delicious but never indulgent, sweet with just the right amount of bitter, THE DINNER LIST is a romance for our times. Bon appetit.

  1. Sidney Ball (my great-grandfather), Oona Bilitch(my grandmother), Vera Brittain, Rosamunde Pilcher, and Colin Firth.


  2. My mom and dad who both passed away last year in their 90s, my mom’s parents, and my husband who died in 1992 when we were 45.


  3. I always have trouble with making that dinner list, because what, if like Audrey, they aren’t happy about something?


  4. All deceased Family & Friends some to find out what really happened
    Mom, Grandpa, Childhood BF Virginia, Cousin Danny and the 5th would be my other Cousin but him from the past so I can warn him of something
    Thank you for sharing this Book with us


  5. I would like my Mother and Father (my father passed late last year and I miss him a lot). Other to be included are my grandmother (who is also passed).

    My husband (very much alive) and a friend I have not seen in over 20 yrs


  6. I’d love to have dinner with my mother, my father, my grandmother, my brother, and my high school debate coach. Sadly, they are all deceased, so this would be a very wonderful dinner indeed.


  7. My sister and my parents and grandparents. That would be a fun time. I never really knew my grandparents very well. I miss my sister like crazy still. I had my parents around much longer and they haven’t been gone as long as my sister so that’s a bit different.


  8. “Just tell us which five people you’d love to have dinner with. Choose anyone!” Jessica Mitford. Nancy Mitford. Evelyn Waugh. Andre Maurois. Marcel Proust.
