Sunday Salon:Summer Reading

Welcome to the Sunday Salon! Also visit The Sunday Post hosted by The Caffeinated Bookreviewer; It's Monday: What Are You Reading? at Book Journey.

Books for summer reading: Southern fiction, a few mystery novels, and historical fiction.

The Hurricane Sisters

The Hurricane Sisters by Dorothea Benton Frank takes us deep in the heart of the magical Carolina Lowcountry--a sultry land of ancient magic, glorious sunsets, and soothing coastal breezes, where three generations of strong women wrestle with the expectations of family while struggling to understand their complicated relationships with each other.(goodreads)

In Be Careful What You Witch For by Dawn Eastman, Clyde Fortune has returned to her seemingly quiet hometown of Crystal Haven, Michigan. In spite of the psychic powers of its residents, there’s no telling what trouble is brewing in this burg…(goodreads)

and an audio win from Soho Press: 
The Blood of An Englishman by James McClure, a mystery set in South Africa.

I am currently reading a library book:

Fleur de Lies by Maddy Hunter has travel agency owner Emily Andrew-Miceli taking her band of tech-savvy seniors to France, cruising down the Seine River. But once a guest is found dead along Normandy's famed Alabaster coast, Emily bids adieu to the hopes of a fatality-free trip. (goodreads)

For a book tour by the publisher, I'm also reading

The Beautiful American by Jeanne Mackin:  From Paris in the 1920s to London after the Blitz, two women find that a secret from their past reverberates through years of joy and sorrow. (goodreads)

What books are on your summer reading list? 


  1. These all look so good! I have The Hurricane Sisters on my list...and now I want to add the others. Thanks for sharing!

  2. I agree with Laurel-Rain, they all look good!

  3. Looks like a great variety for summer reading. I hope you enjoy all of them!

  4. You have some great books lined up! I've been wanting to read Dorothea Benton Frank... her books seem perfect for summer.

  5. Looks like you really have some great books lined up.

    Tech savvy seniors are not a fiction. I have a relative in his 70s who spends lot of time on social media and is more adapt at it then almost anyone e else that I know.

  6. I love the covers! I hope you enjoy the books.

  7. The Hurricane Sisters reminds me of something Anne a Rivers Siddons may have written. I loved her books in the summer (and year round, too.) the last one looks perfect for Paris in July. Will yoube reading for that?

  8. Wow, they all sound good! I have Dawn Eastman's book in my review stack for next month. I've got my eye on The Beautiful American, because I love early 20th century historical fiction.

  9. All of these look like great books!

  10. Nice bunch of books. Fleur de Lies and Be Careful What You Witch For sound like books that should be on my TBR Pile. Come see my week here. Happy reading!

  11. Dawn Eastman's book is set in Michigan so I'm curious about that one. And Fleur De Lies just sounds fun- a cozy set in France? That could be good. :)

    Have an awesome week!

  12. The Beautiful American has a great cover.

    Here's my list:

  13. The Hurricane Sisters is calling my name, hope it's great. Have a good week and happy reading :)
