As you know, I’ve been making my way through my summer reading list. I’ll be honest, most of it this year has been light, fluffy reading. Nothing too serious. I just finished Sweet Salt Air by Barbara Delinsky.
The long and short of it: two young women (early 30s) meet up again at the summer house of their youth after being separated for ten years. The two women are writing a cookbook together. Charlotte has committed a crime of the heart against Nicole, who doesn’t know it. But due to illness and circumstances of health, the news must come out.
The book takes place on a fictional island in Maine, which is one of my favorite settings for a summer read. What can I say, these days I’m having a serious pull to the water and the beach.
I am offering this once-read hardcover book as a giveaway. That’s right, I will snail-mail this book to you, free of charge. The winner will be drawn at random, and must reside in the United States. To enter, write your favorite beach vacation destination in the comments below.
Next up on my summer reading list (and, I guess, the final one…Labor Day is Monday!) is The Apple Orchard by Susan Wiggs.
