So grab your towel, sunscreen, and one of our steamy and suspenseful picks and settle in on the sand. These won’t be easy to put down!

    Thanks for the suggestions! My book club is looking for a few new books to throw in to the ring for the summer, I’ll have to suggest these to the girls on Saturday. You should check out “Mofongo” by Cecilia Samartin. We finished it about a week ago and it was a fantastic book, especially great for a book club. Thanks again for the suggestions!
