I read more books during the summer than any other season of the year. I’m not really sure how I connected the beach with reading a light and easy novel, but I know I’m not the only one out there. At Barnes & Noble online, you can get fantastic page-turners to occupy yourself while you soak up the sun this summer. Whether you prefer traditional printed books or want to load up your Nook eReader (like me!), you’ll find most of these new titles available in both formats.
Cuddle Up with a Romance
If you’re like me and you prefer to read about love and romance on that beach towel, there are many exciting new titles hitting shelves just in time to pack your beach bag! Here are just a few of the highlights:
- Hidden Star by Nora Roberts (Stars of Mithra Series, book 1). This new series by romance master Roberts begins with Bailey James, an amnesiac who can only remember that she’s in some sort of trouble. Coolheaded private eye Cade Parris helps her live long enough to put the pieces together in this thrilling mystery/romance.
- The Brideby Julie Garwood. Join Scottish laird and Highland barbarian Alec Kincaid as he woos the stubborn, passionate English Jamie, the daughter of Baron Jamison. How long can she resist him?
- The Naked King by Sally MacKenzie. After another drunken night of indulgence, Stephen Parker-Roth must betroth himself to avoid scandal. But Lady Anne Marston is displeased with the sham engagement, regretful of her past, and hoping to put it all behind her.
Solve a Mystery or Crime
Some prefer a little more adrenaline and puzzle-solving from their beach reads. For you, there are plenty of great options available as well:
- Now You See Herby James Patterson. Nina Bloom’s perfect life is built around a perfect lie, told almost two decades previous, that threatens to resurface and destroy everything she has. If she confronts this evil, will her problem just go away?
- Against All Enemies by Tom Clancy. Join Clancy’s newest hero, ex-Navy SEAL Max Moore, as he survives a Pakistan terrorist bombing and gets plunged into a drug ware that could destroy the heart of America.
- Fallen by Karin Slaughter. Police officer Faith Mitchell confronts her own personal tragedies when she finds a dead man and a hostage in her mother’s house… with her mother nowhere In sight. Now a cop, witness, and suspect in her mother’s kidnapping, Mitchell has to fight to bright the truth to light.
