Silver Bay

I have a read a lot of JoJo Moyes books over the years and I don’t think I’ve disliked any of them. They are all fairly typical modern day romance – or what I like to call ‘beach reads’ – but I love ’em!

Silver Bay didn’t disappoint either. Silver Bay is a quiet town in Australia, whose residents love the wildlife of their bay – mainly dolphins and migrating whales. Kathleen has lived there all her life, now running the hotel that her parents started. Her niece, Liza, also moved there from England with daughter Hannah. But when Mike comes on business, looking at land and approvals for a large resort development, their quiet space and past secrets are threatened to be ruined and exposed. What Mike doesn’t expect, though, is for his feelings about his job and his entire life to change. It was definitely emotional at times, but mainly because animals were involved. Definitely a good, easy beach/summer read! Enjoy!

Wedding Night

No, this is not a post about a personal¬†wedding night. Sorry to disappoint.¬†Wedding Night by Sophie Kinsella was way more entertaining than I expected it to be. It’s very light, kind of ridiculous, and easy read. This could easily be written for screen and be the next big rom com. Any screenwriters out there?! Some women do extreme things post-breakup, but this one takes the cake. I could see this on screen as I was reading…perhaps some leads of Carey Mulligan, Leslie Mann, Emma Stone and/or Anna Faris. Wait, maybe I should write this screenplay. New career?

Anyway, if you need a good beach/pool read as summer winds down, this is it. Enjoy!
