It’s hard to believe it’s already the middle of June, and while I know summer doesn’t technically begin for another week, the summer season has been in full swing here at the Jersey Shore for several weeks now. I’ve been lucky enough to take advantage of some beautiful, sunny beach days and gotten a good start on my summer reading list.
A couple weeks ago, I shared a few books that were at the top of my list to read this summer, and today, I want to share my quick reviews of them!
Summer at Rose Island by Holly Martin
My rating – 4 stars
I love it when authors revisit the same towns in several of their books. Summer at Rose Island is the third book in the White Cliff Bay series. I enjoyed not only meeting Darcy and Riley, but also revisiting characters from the first two White Cliff Bay books to see what they were up to. It’s a sweet story with small town charm that was the perfect read for a day at the beach!
Summer at Oyster Bay by Jenny Hale
My rating – 5 stars
Summer at Oyster Bay is the perfect summer read! The small town in the Chesapeake Bay area is the perfect setting for this light-hearted, summer read!
This is the third book I’ve read by Jenny Hale, and I’m quickly becoming a big fan. She has such a way of creating dynamic relationships between characters. But the best part is the focus isn’t solely on romantic relationships, but also on ones between family members and friends, which makes all of her characters so relatable.
Make sure Summer at Oyster Bay is on your summer reading list this year!
So what’s next on my list? I’m currently reading The One with the Engagement Party (Bridesmaids Part 1) by Erin Lawless, and then next up will be Kiss Me Forever by Barbara Freethy. What’s on your summer reading list? I’d love hear about what you’re reading so that I can check it out!
