I love summertime reading. To me, a chair by the pool with a good book is a great way to spend the afternoon. My days by the pool are over now that I’m back to work, but there’s still plenty of summer left to enjoy a good book. I have two suggestions if you are looking for something new to read.
I liked The Blue Bistro so much that I plowed through it in two reading sessions. The food descriptions in this book are guaranteed to make your mouth water and I also enjoyed reading about the behind the scenes world of the kitchen and front of the house life in a restaurant. Elin Hilderbrand generally uses Nantucket as the setting for her books and this one is no exception. Nantucket is on my “one of these days” list, thanks to Hilderbrand’s descriptions.
I just started The Devil Amongst the Lawyers. It’s about newspaper reporters descending on a small town in Appalachia to cover the story of a young woman accused of murdering her father. McCrumb’s descriptions of life in Appalachia never fail to quickly draw me into her story.
What are you reading? I can always use a recommendation to add to my list.
