What's On My Reading List

A quick review of Summer Rental  by Mary Kay Andrews starts us off this week.  Three childhood friends:  Ellis, Julia, and Dora rent a house on the North Carolina Coast for the month of August to hang out and catch up with each other's lives.  The house, Ebbtide, is a bit run down, and the owner--Mr. Culpepper--is only available via email.  Ellis soon runs into Ty, the gorgeous man who lives above the garage in a tiny apartment (and the real Mr. Culpepper) and sparks fly.  Meanwhile, Julia is facing a big decision involving her long term relationship with Booker, an Dora's got a big bombshell to share.  

It's a fun novel about friendship, and days on the beach.  Throw in Madison, a mysterious woman who rents the third floor from the ladies, and you've got another dimension to an otherwise fairly tame read.  I give it 2/5.  Not much to this novel, but enjoyable and a perfect read when you just want to escape.

Still overwhelmed by books!  I'm working my way through Shadow of Night by Deborah Harkness and enjoying being in the company of Diana and Matthew.  Here's what else I am reading this week:
