JUNE 4, 2024

Posted June 29, 2022

Dear Reader,

Now that you’ve read my two summer books—The Summer Getaway and The Boardwalk Bookshop—I have some recommendations for stories to keep those summer vibes going strong. These are books that I think you will love, from gifted storytellers, authors you can trust with your hearts.


The Bodyguard by Katherine Center – July 19

This is a classic rom-com with one of the funniest scenes I’ve read in a long time. The story is as happy as the adorable cover!

The Best Is Yet to Come by Debbie Macomber – July 12

Debbie Macomber. Do I really need to say more? Debbie writes heartfelt, down-home stories, and The Best Is Yet to Come is one of the best she’s ever written.

Summer Nights with the Maverick by Christine Rimmer – June 28
