I, Michael Bennett, by James Patterson and Michael Ledwidge
Shadow of Night, by Deborah Harkness
Friends Forever, by Danielle Steel
Broken Harbor, by Tana French
Fireproof, by Alex Kava
Backfire, by Catherine Coulter
Criminal, by Karin Slaughter
The After Wife, by Gigi Levangie Grazer
Where We Belong, by Emily Giffin
Now, of course, come the decisions. What do you want to read? If you're looking for something a little lighter to bring to the beach, I'd suggest the new Emily Giffin, Where We Belong. Secret pasts, reconnecting with family and old flames, the threat of a carefully built life tumbling to pieces--juicy and engrossing!
If you're more in the mood for a thriller to keep you engrossed while your kids are splashing in the pool for endless hours, or to keep you entertained on a sultry summer afternoon, I'd recommend Criminal, by Karin Slaughter. Murder, secrets that span generations, loyalty put to the ultimate test. Yes, please!
Finally, you know what I'm eager to get my hands on, since I've been mentioning it for nearly a year, right? That would be Shadow of Night, by Deborah Harkness, sequel to last year's library staff favorite, A Discovery of Witches. If you're open to a little paranormal with your romance, and a little fantasy with your history, I highly recommend this duo!
I'll be back Thursday with the second installment of your summer reading list!
