Well, perhaps not yet. But you can't blame a girl for looking ahead. Soon it'll be 80 degree days and we'll all be wishing it was a little bit cooler. (Not me though, I'm always cold).
Last time I was at the beach I checked out what everyone else was reading. One person had Ken Follett's World Without End. That's a 1024 page book in paperback! But to them that was their perfect beach read.
I had a copy of Carola Dunn's Murder on the Flying Scotsman. I love Dunn's Daisy Dalrymple series. They are set in London just after WWI, and the main character Daisy is from the upper class but she does the unthinkable- she works for a living! Scandalous. She writes for travel magazines and always manages to stumble across a dead body. Luckily there is always the Chief Inspector Alec Fletcher to help her solve the case (and provide a romantic interest). Tiny enough to throw in a beach bag, plot twists to keep me guessing, but if the hot sun makes me sleepy it's okay to put the book down because I've read them all at least 3 times!
So what books are you looking foward to hitting the beach with? A sultry romance, a whodunit, or a seafaring adventure? Do you choose something new or an old favorite? Summer will be here faster then we think, so let's start planning ahead!
