Winter Stroll by Elin Hilderbrand

Last year I listened to Winter Street by Elin Hilderbrand and loved meeting the Quinns and spending the holidays in Nantucket. What I did not like was the major cliffhanger and abrupt ending. You can just imagine how excited I was to begin Winter Stroll. While the ending was not quite as abrupt, there are still many unresolved issues and once again, I will be counting the days until I am back in Nantucket with this slightly dysfunctional, sweet and chaotic family.

The Shore by Sara Taylor

As a reader, I am sure you often wonder what draws another reader to a particular book. Is it the cover or perhaps the synopsis? I was drawn to The Shore for a number of reasons. If I am being honest, MacLeod Andrews name listed as a narrator first piqued my interest. Do you do that? The second thing that spoke to me was the setting, as I am very familiar with the shores along the Chesapeake Bay. The Shore is a collective of stories and perspectives that both intrigued and frustrated me.

Suddenly One Summer by Julie James

Suddenly One Sumner by Julie James is a delicious beach read with depth and characters you will embrace. This was my first James’ novel and while this is a standalone, the hero Ford first appeared in one of her FBI/US Attorney novels. I must admit to being curious. Filled with banter, sexy time and wrapped in heartwarming side stories it is easy to see why Julie James is a favorite
