Summer reading recommendations

Hello Friends!

Is there anything better than curling up with a good book under a beach umbrella or shady tree? Here is a list of possibilities to consider for your summer poolside or vacation reading. Some are new books, some have been out a while (even a long while). Please be aware that I’m a voracious reader (and audiobook listener), and I read in a variety of genres, with different levels of heat and/or violence. Some of the books below may not be your cup of tea. <smile>

Let me know in the comments what books YOU recommend this summer!

Romantic Suspense/Thriller – General

Beyond Risk by yours truly. If you haven’t read my Florida Wildlife Warrior Series about three law enforcement siblings, I hope you’ll start with book 1, BEYOND RISK. Florida’s untamed wilderness beckons with its beauty and mystery, but paradise has a dark side…
