Beach Books

Chair at the Beach with a book on top.

Even though it's cold out there, warm and sunny beach weather should be arriving any day now! So remember, just like "think spring"!, think beach! To help speed up the process, maybe even read a few beach books. We have a wonderful display here at the central library created by Librarian Mary. Beach books include:

Beach Road by James Patterson

"Down-and-out Montauk lawyer Tom Dunleavy's ship finally comes in when he's hired to defend a local man accused of the triple murder that has the East Hampton world in an uproar."

All Summer Long by Dorothea Benton Frank

"New Yorkers Olivia Ritchie, a prominent interior designer, and her husband Nicholas Seymour, an English professor and true southern gentleman, are a charming couple. They are seemingly polar opposites, yet magnetically drawn together and in love for more than fourteen years. As they prepare to relocate to Charleston, S.C., Olivia, the ultimate New Yorker, has reservations about the promise she made to retire in the Lowcountry, where Nick wants to return home and lead a more peaceful life. They are moving north to south, fast pace versus slow pace and downsizing. Nick is ecstatic. Olivia is not. She can't let Nick know that their finances are not what he thought. Her client list is evaporating, their monetary reserves are dwindling and maybe that house she picked out on Sullivans Island needs too much work. Thank God for her assistant, Roni Larini, her right (and sometimes left) hand. As they find themselves pondering the next step of their lives, Olivia and Nick travel with her billionaire clients and their friends and are swept up into the world of the ultra-rich and explore the globe with a cast of zany eccentrics over one tumultuous, hot summer. All as Olivia grapples with what lies ahead for her and Nick."

Bones Under the Beach Hut by Simon Brett

"The affluent seaside resort of Smalting is unaccustomed to crime. So when human remains are found beneath the floorboards of one of its beach huts, the community is awash with suspicion and fear."
