What book will be in your beach bag this summer?  You know, the book/ author that is a guaranteed page turner for you.  Maybe its not original and doesn't take you on new roads.  But, its satisfying and makes you sigh with joy for having gone along for the ride.

I will be packing Fearless Fourteen by Janet Evanovich.

I don't "do" the beach, but for a light, quck cozy-ish read for devouring while sitting under the apple tree in the yard, I'm hoping Wormwood, the latest China Bayles mystery by Susan Wittig Albert will be coming my way soon. Last time I looked I was #3 on the WL, so it shouldn't be too long.

A beach read for me is usually light, fun and well done.  Romantic suspense, humorous mystery, anything that has a good story and a laugh - including some of the wise-cracking PI's.

I'm with Cheryl, don't do beach.  I was out on the back porch admiring all the work I did in the yard before settling down with my iced tead and Demons Are a Ghouls Best Friend.  I like Victoria Laurie's writing style and enjoyed the book.  A fair warning I thought it got a bit gruesome as it progressed.  If you're at all squeemish (sp) don't read this book!

A small hint, the main ghost is called Hatchet Jack, nuf said.
