Lazy Days of Summer Reading@your Library

The last few weeks of summer are here already and we need to savour every moment of sunshine and relaxation we can find before the cooler and busier days of fall arrive. If you have saved some vacation time for late August and are looking for some great reading to enjoy at the cottage or the beach or even in spare moments on the front porch, the Bracebridge Public Library has many choices for you.

Dreams of Falling by Karen White is described as “the best kind of novel- it’s a past-and-present love story expertly wrapped in mystery.” This contemporary women’s fiction novel, set in the Lowcountry of South Carolina, features lifelong friends who share a devastating secret.

If you like heartfelt stories about the enduring power of love and kindness, you will want to read the novels written by Viola Shipman. Actually, the name Viola Shipman is a pseudonym or pen name for award-winning memoirist Wade Rouse. Following The Charm Bracelet and The Hope Chest is his latest in this genre, The Recipe Box. This is the story of Sam who left her home in northern Michigan with dreams of becoming a classically trained pastry chef. However, life in New York did not live up to her dreams. Returning home, she discovers what matters most.

From the beloved author of the Ransom Canyon and Harmony, Texas series, comes a new heartwarming story about generations of family - Mornings on Main by Jodi Thomas. Jillian James lands in Laurel Springs Texas looking for clues about the father who abandoned her. Connor Larady, a single dad, is faced with closing his grandmother’s shop unless he can find someone to carry on. Will they be able to help each other?

Best-selling author Mary Alice Monroe has a new title in her Beach House series – Beach House Reunion. Readers return to the lush setting of the Isle of Palms in South Carolina as three generations of the Rutledge family gather together. Once again the call of nature, the scent of the ocean, and the southern charm of her stories envelop us.

Pull up a lawn chair or stretch out in the hammock to enjoy any of these wonderful novels this summer.
