The Books of Summer 2018

Here are the twelve books I’ve picked for my summer reading 2018. A full disclosure here… I recently signed up to be an Amazon Associate so I’ve included links to each book and should you buy one I’ll get an affiliate fee.

 

To The Bridge by Nancy Rommelmann

Need I say more, the wonderful, late Sue Grafton and the author who inspired me to write my own mystery about a female PI…so looking forward to this one-

Crimes Against a Book Club by Kathy Cooperman

This one sounds lighthearted and you need one of those types of stories now and then-

//ws-na.amazon-adsystem.com/widgets/q?ServiceVersion=20070822&OneJS=1&Operation=GetAdHtml&MarketPlace=US&source=ac&ref=qf_sp_asin_til&ad_type=product_link&tracking_id=susiep-20&marketplace=amazon&region=US&placement=1542045746&asins=1542045746&linkId=c97e87170657fc25e1c8c1d8ab6ad728&show_border=false&link_opens_in_new_window=false&price_color=333333&title_color=0066c0&bg_color=ffffff

 

Only The Rain by Randall Silvis

Another mystery with a hidden secret-

If you’re like me and an avid reader, one way I’ve found to lower the cost of buying so many books is to be an Amazon Prime member. You get your pick of a free book of the month, another free book to borrow each month, and more books you can borrow (magazines too), in the Prime Reading category. About 25% of books I’ll be reading this summer I acquired via that route so if you want to give Prime membership a free trial, here’s a link.
