Definite beach read chick lit material, this novel takes place on the Jersey Shore, as a young widow living in an old family house is confronted with the past, and forced to deal with her new future.
This is a rare combination of historical fiction (WW2 and late 1960s themes) and a deftly plotted mystery, and will keep readers engaged with its complexity.
This has a little bit of everything- romance, a French countryside, parenting themes, and even a little comedy, and is a light and fun read that is very beach worthy.

From the author of “Under the Tuscan Sun,” (one of my favorite movies) comes this cheeky novel set in Tuscany that tells the story of three young American women visiting Italy, and the adventure, love, and experiences they share. If you can’t go to Italy this summer, this is the next best thing.
The queen of summer chick lit is back with her latest release, and this one is on par with her previous summer successes. Story is set in Nashville, and centers around wealth, privilege, and one terrible mistake made by a teenager.
If you love a great haunting domestic noir, don’t miss this one. Fast paced and full of twists, fans of Paula Hawkins and Gillian Flynn will love this one.
Publisher’s Weekly called this thriller “Jaw dropping. Unforgettable. Shocking.” That about sums it up. Plan to finish this pick in one sitting.
This is a fictional and hilarious look at modern pregnancy and mothering. Perfect read for young women beginning their parenting journey.
This may be my favorite of the bunch. Had me laughing out loud one minute, and tearing up the next. Read it in one afternoon and didn’t want it to end. Funny, sharp, and heartwarming look behind the scenes of a suburban street.
A love story that blooms in the face of tragedy, you won’t soon forget this one. Library Journal said about this book, “Inspiring and romantic… A touching and truthful novel that shows how people can find comfort in the most unexpected places.”
