Included in the bunch are contemporary fiction, historical fiction, suspense/thrillers, and some good old fashioned beach worthy chick-lit. Enjoy!
Heading out on a cruise this summer? This is the book to bring! Taking place on a cruise to South America, you’ll meet two families who, through a series of misunderstandings (and maybe something else), manage to lose the children offshore. A suspenseful page turner, this is one you won’t be setting down once you start.
Nora’s latest will not disappoint her fans. Set on a family run ranch/resort in western Montana, you’ll meet deep characters and un-tackle the mystery behind more than one assumed murder. A multi-layered suspense and family drama infused with romance, Nora continues to deliver intriguing storylines with each new title.
Historical fiction fans will devour this one. Set partly in WWI, and WWII, you’ll meet two courageous women who were part of a real life espionage system- the Alice Network. This wartime story of sacrifice and mystery is perfect for fans of The Nightingale.
Part of the Stoney Point series, this new title is the quintessential beach read, as it’s set on the coast of New England. As a crumbling beach inn is forced to go up for sale, the town comes together to save it and its owner, and includes a cast of characters you’ll adore. Satisfying story about old friends, this light and fulfilling novel is just right for lazy beach days.
What happens in Vegas stays in Vegas, right? Follow the stories of four very different women whose lives get unexpectedly intertwined at a Vegas casino. Heartbreaking and funny, this story of love and loss and everything in between set in Sin City is a story that will transport you right to the desert.
Get to know three very different sisters, estranged for many years, as they are called home by their ill mother to help with her final wishes. A wonderfully sentimental and juicy novel, this would be a great choice for a summer book club.
Another historical fiction novel set on the eve of D-Day in Normandy, this new title from the bestselling author of “The Curiosity,” is a starred review from Library Journal, and will be devoured by fans of “All the Light We Cannot See.” Meet brave Emma, a baker with a secret that helps keep her fellow villagers alive until the Allies can come save them. An emotional and beautiful story of courage during a town’s darkest days.
Elin keeps churning out books we can’t put down, and this one is no different. Follow the story of two very different identical twin sisters as they come to terms with trying to save an inherited inn and a failing business. Set between Martha’s Vineyard and Nantucket, this tale of sibling rivalry and identity switching is an easy and delightful read.
A whodunit you won’t soon forget. When Clara’s husband is killed in a car crash but her daughter riding as a passenger walks away unharmed-but with odd memories of the accident- Clara must find out what really happened on that fateful afternoon. Publisher’s Weekly deems this a “chilling psychological thriller” and Kubica is a “master of suspenseful manipulation.”
Named one of 10 of this summer’s must read vacation novels by Ft. Worth Magazine, this title set on coastal New England will take you on a sweeping and ever turning ride of emotions.

This is your feel-good novel of the summer. I laughed. I cried. I rooted for these characters like they were my friends and neighbors. Hopeful, slightly romantic, sharply witty, take this paperback with you on your summer road trip and thank me later.
