Rachele's Summer Picks
This is without a doubt my favorite romance I've read in the past 3 years. Nora Stephens is an uptight literary agent who does it all for her clients, while Charlie is a sullen book editor from a small town. They really don't like each other, but it seems fate keeps bringing them together in unexpected ways. This book is laugh out loud hilarious, with the back and forth between the two my favorite part of the story.
The much-anticipated follow-up to IT HAPPENED ONE SUMMER sees best friends (and only friends) Fox, a womanizing crab fisherman and Hannah, a music lover and movie assistant, rooming together. But they're just friends! Or is there something more? A fantastic, refreshing friends-to-lovers romance featuring mutual pining, and healthy, realistic communication, this is one you don't want to miss!
For fans of Sarah J Maas, this adult romance-fantasy hybrid is one of the best I've read in this genre! This story follows Cat, a soothsayer in a traveling fair, escaping a traumatic childhood. But when she's kidnapped for her magic by a surly warlord named Griffin, she has to come to terms with her power, her burgeoning attraction for him, and the danger that coming for her.
For fans of "27 Dresses" and messy wedding rom-coms is THE WEDDING CRASHER, a perfect romance for the summertime! Solange is only at the wedding to help her cousin, but when she overhears a confession by the bride-to-be, she must object, even if it means killing Dean's chance at his wedding of convenience. This story is filled with humor, heart, and lots of fake-dating drama!
The Roommate is one of the best romances I read last year! Clara is forced into a sticky situation when she moves in with Josh, a popular adult movie star. This uptight socialite is caught off-guard when she is roped into learning more about his world, and begins to have feelings for him, an improper match! For fans of guys with golden-retriever energy and falling first, and a strong but stubborn female character, you won’t regret picking this one up!
(This book cannot be returned.)
A thriller for fans of Criminal Minds comes a multi-POV, dual timeline story following two missing person cases in a quiet suburb, where it seems everyone has a secret. With multiple twists and turns, I definitely did NOT see that ending coming. Will you be able to guess who the true villian is? I bet not!
For fans of Gone Girl comes a suspense story that had me reading through the night! Claire Cook, society darling has a powerful husband, one she desperately wants away from. But when she flees, a chance encounter at the airport with a woman as desperate as she is leads to devastating consequences.
One day Alicia comes home and shoots her husband five times in the face and never says another word. Theo is a psychotherapist who is trying to get her to talk, to make sense of the crime. The twists and turns never stopped in this one, and the less you know about the story, the better! Just pick this one up, you won't regret it.
