The arrival of summer brings lazy days lounging on the beach, with a cocktail on one hand and a book on another. In time for the sweltering season, weâ€™d like to recommend a few books that deserve to be packed off to wherever youâ€™re going to. Some have been available for several years but remain on top of bestsellersâ€™ list, while others were released this year and have created early, positive buzz. New or slightly old, these books are great companions to your well-planned summer retreats.
The prolific, 70-year-old American author started off the first quarter of the year with a spot on the coveted bestseller lists with 16th Seduction. Co-written with Maxine Paetro, the thriller is about a female detective investigating the sudden rash of heart attacks claiming unrelated victims in San Francisco. Complicating things further is an ongoing trial of a bomber she caught, which puts her integrity in question.
