I’ve read some good books this summer, and I’ve read a lot more than usual, about 2 books a week.
The one I’m reading right now is called SUDDENLY ONE SUMMER by Barbara Freethy. I think it’s the first in a series that takes place on the central coast of CA, in a seaside town. It’s a contemporary romance, but has elements of the paranormal–angels are leaving messages carved in the cliff overlooking the sea–and romantic suspense–if I tell you that, it will spoil the surprise. It has wonderful characters, all of whom have their own conflicts and concerns that makes you root for them. I already have the second book on my wish list.
I really enjoyed EXCLUSIVELY YOURS by Shannon Stacey, too, one of Carina’s launch books. It’s a great reunion romance, focusing on the hero and heroine, but set at a campground, of all places, surrounded by his family. It has a great mix of humor and tenderness, and will be the topic of discussion at Smart Bitches, Trashy Books book club.
DISASTER STATUS by Candace Calvert was another book that I was thinking about after it was over. I absolutely loved charge nurse Erin and her grandmother, and thought she was just what firefighter Scott needed to snap him out of his shell. It’s inspirational but not preachy. Can’t wait until book 3 comes out!

    I've been reading here and there. Love Starts with Elle by Rachel Hauck was good and Hex Hall (YA) by Rachel Hawkins was a real treat.

    I keep hearing about Hex Hall. I love the title of the Rachel Hauck book (did you realize both books you mentioned were by someone named Rachel?? LOL!)
