Are you ready for summer? Vacations, cocktails, sun, sand and reading. We are gearing up for our own vacations and want to share the books we want to take with us on vacation. So sit back, grab a snack and join us as we help you prepare with a book packing list!

Bellewether by Susanna Kearsley

Perhaps you’re looking for something not as light and full of atmosphere from the ghosts and secrets of the past.  I bring to your attention this week Susanna Kearsley’s standalone romantic suspense, Bellewether. Releases August 7th.

Belleweather by Susanna Kearsley
Genre: Historical Romance
Releases on August 7, 2018

“The house, when I first saw it, seemed intent on guarding what it knew; but we all learned, by the end of it, that secrets aren’t such easy things to keep.”

It’s late summer, war is raging, and families are torn apart by divided loyalties and deadly secrets. In this complex and dangerous time, a young French Canadian lieutenant is captured and billeted with a Long Island family, an unwilling and unwelcome guest. As he begins to pitch in with the never-ending household tasks and farm chores, Jean-Philippe de Sabran finds himself drawn to the daughter of the house. Slowly, Lydia Wilde comes to lean on Jean-Philippe, true soldier and gentleman, until their lives become inextricably intertwined. Legend has it that the forbidden love between Jean-Philippe and Lydia ended tragically, but centuries later, the clues they left behind slowly unveil the true story.

The following two tabs change content below.
I was born and raised near Sacramento, CA. I have read since I was four years old and developed tastes that run the gamut of literature. I went away to college and have a degree in education, a certificate in family history research, and a certificate in social work. I worked for a non-profit agency with low income families for 20 years which included being responsible for the children’s library and promoting/teaching adult literacy. I have lived in Southeast Michigan for the last 18 years and I am currently a book addicted homemaker with a cat and husband who keep me grounded. Recently, I made it a challenge to review each book that I have read as a favor to author friends who said reviews are important. I have done reviews for Good Reads, Amazon, eBay, and Smashwords, but mostly at Goodreads and Amazon.

This is my fifth one and I’ve enjoyed each one. I still have the older ones to get to. I’m becoming a fan. 🙂

Wait. Is this a true story? Or are they just trying to make you think that? I don’t usually do tragic love stories though.

Sophia Rose

No, it was fiction. She sets fictional stories in a larger real historical event or setting so it feels like it could be real. I don’t usually do the tragic either (hint, hint) LOL
