I'm off to the beach...

...and this is what I've packed in my Kindle.

Shirley Jump's first Fortune's Island romance AND THEN FOREVER 

I've already started reading this book and it's just wonderful. I love Shirley's voice and Fortune's Island is going to be a favourite. Here's the blurb -

Love is an extravagance Darcy Williams can’t afford. She prefers the simple life, which includes waitressing at The Love Shack and avoiding temptation. But when a forbidden part of her past steps off the ferry, her safe, guarded existence is turned upside down.

Kincaid Foster has never gotten over his first love. When he sees the wild, beautiful blonde again, dancing her way around The Love Shack, the memories of Darcy’s soft skin, gentle touch, and heated kisses come rushing back. As the privileged son of a wealthy family, Kincaid was too young to stand up to his overbearing father when he and Darcy were together. Now, he’s back on the island—free of the family shackles—and the chiseled, big-time lawyer wants a second chance.

But, Darcy made a promise to keep a secret from Kincaid—a secret that is now a six-year-old girl who looks just like her daddy. If Kincaid finds out about their daughter, Darcy could lose everything. But, she can’t resist the man who stole her heart all those years ago. And it doesn’t take long before both of them realize that anything can happen on a hot summer night.

I have all the "Peter Grant" books on my Kindle and I'm waiting for the kindle version of the latest, "The Hanging Tree", but I'll dip into these again in the meantime. Here's a taste -

My name is Peter Grant and until January I was just probationary constable in that mighty army for justice known to all right-thinking people as the Metropolitan Police Service (and as the Filth to everybody else). My only concerns in life were how to avoid a transfer to the Case Progression Unit - we do paperwork so real coppers don't have to - and finding a way to climb into the panties of the outrageously perky WPC Leslie May. Then one night, in pursuance of a murder inquiry, I tried to take a witness statement from someone who was dead but disturbingly voluable, and that brought me to the attention of Inspector Nightingale, the last wizard in England.

Murder, mayhem and a lot of fun.

Milly Johnson is a brilliant, witty writer and a huge bestseller in the UK. I'm not sure if US readers have found her yet, but they're in for a treat when they do. I love her books and this one seems to be perfect for a quiet, shady spot on the sand.

When dynamic, power-dressing Christie blows in like a warm wind to take over their department, five very different women find themselves thrown together at work. But none of them could have predicted the fierce bond of friendship that her leadership would inspire. . .

Oh, and if you're looking for something extra to pack for the beach, my latest,
Vettori's Damsel in Distress, published in July in the UK, US and Australia is a Romantic Times TOP PICK, For a taste test click here or on one of the links to download the book right now!

Have never got into the Peter Grant books. I should do. They have all the right ingredients - and I've twice been given copies by people I know and love who have said, This is going to be right up your street'. But so far - no. Must try again.

Have a lovely holiday.

They were great reads, all of them. And I got into Sarah Morgan's Puffin Island books as well. She is sooo good!

Sometimes it's like that, Jenny. All the ingredients are there but it just doesn't grab you. I heard about the first book on "A Good Read" on BBC4 and it just snagged something in my mind and I just loved them. Of course what I'm really aching for is a new Jenny Haddon!
