I’m heading out to our family beach house for a week of fun in the sun and toes in the sand. Life has been crazy stressful over the past few months and I’m really looking forward to getting away. Working from home has a number of benefits but one of the downsides is that you never really turn off your job. I’m constantly plugged in and it’s beginning to grate on me. In fact, at my physical earlier this summer, my doctor told me that I need a vacation. He literally wrote it on his prescription pad and handed it to me with direct orders to take some time off.

I am ready to follow his orders! Part of my vacation will include some much needed reading for pure enjoyment. Not for research or to keep up with trends. Nope. Nope. Nope. Part of my escape this week will involve slipping inside some well written worlds.

Here are the the 5 books that are going in my beach bag.

  1. THE RIDGE by Michael Koryta: This looks like a scary suspenseful read with a hint of romance thrown into the mix. I’ve never read one his books before but the blurb on the back captured my interest and I love finding new-to-me authors!
  2. FULL THROTTLE by Julie Ann Walker: Hot baddass guys on motorcycles? Yes, please.
  3. EXIT ZERO by Neil A. Cohen: This is a zombie book and another new-to-me author. I met Neil at Walker Stalker in New Jersey and he hooked me with his pitch. To top it off, there’s a cover quote from Snooki, of Jersey Shore fame. Come ON! I had to get it. My curiosity got the better of me.
  4. HEART STRIKE by M.L. Buchman: This super hot romantic suspense looks fabulous! Not only is the hero a badass soldier but so is the heroine. I adore reading strong female characters. Can’t wait to dive in!
  5. DARK CAROUSEL by Christine Feehan: Christine Feehan is my all-time favorite author and the Queen of paranormal romance. I will read anything and everything she writes. Period.

How about you? What’s in your beach bag or on your kindle?

TROUBLE WALKS IN by Sara Humphreys

McGuire Brothers #2

Walks In

He could be the man to rescue her
Big city K-9 cop Ronan McGuire loves women, loves his dog, loves his job-but when old flame Maddy Morgan moves into his jurisdiction, he can't think about anyone else. Ronan knows she's way out of his league, but he's determined to help Maddy live life to the fullest.

In more ways than one
With tragedy in her past, Maddy has immersed herself in work and swiftly made a name for herself in the hot New York City real estate market. She's looking for safety, not love, but Ronan McGuire is as persistent as he is sexy, and his crooked smile is hard to resist. But all other concerns are wiped away when Maddy goes missing and Ronan and his bloodhound K-9 partner are tasked with finding her and bringing her home.

I really like the sound of TROUBLE WALKS IN. It will be in my TBR Mountain
before long. Right now I am trying to catch up on a few mail order bride
books. I also have Diana Gabaldon’s DRAGONFLY IN AMBER on my shelf. I
usually read the book before watching the movie, but couldn't find my copy. I
bought another one and will bring it on vacation to relax and read. I haven't
had much time to read this summer and need to sort through my books to see
what I will read first.
