Chick Lit Perfect for the Beach!

There's nothing better to pass the time on a long flight or lazy lounging on the beach than a great book! Check out these picks for a literary adventure!
Stephanie Plum Series (start with One for the Money) by Janet Evanovich. Please take my word for this series, you won't be disappointed! Women of all ages will love the comedy and adventure of Stephanie Plum, fearless female bounty hunter. Hurry and get up to speed - Number 14, Fearless Fourteen will be out June 17!

Murder, Mayhem & a fine man by Claudia Mair Burney - now if the title alone doesn't grab you, how about this review? "Claudia Mair Burney does a great job of blending mystery, romance, humor, and Christian truth to create a story that is hard to put down. I laughed out loud and I teared up, but I never stopped turning the pages. I'm ready for the next book." -- Angela Benson, author of The Amen Sisters

Good in Bed by Jennifer Weiner Loved this one! A humorous, touching story of Candice, a plus size woman, who discovers her Ex's feelings of dating/sleeping with a "larger woman" (her) via his new magazine column "Good in Bed". A perfect addition to your carry-on bag!
Certain Girls by Jennifer Weiner
The sequel to Good in Bed is here!
"Weiner's follow-up to Good in Bed is, in a word, fantastic. You'll laugh, you'll cringe, you'll cry as you follow Cannie and her now nearly teenage daughter, Joy. Told through alternating first-person narratives, Weiner's tale gives mothers and daughters alike a treat to devour."-- Romantic Times

Casanegra: A Tennyson Hardwick Novel by Blair Underwood

I admit, I was skeptical at first - I mean, I know Blair is fine but can he write as good as he looks?? I wasn't disappointed - this murder mystery with a hip hop setting is a definite page turner! Teamed with sci-fiction greats Tananarive Due and Steven Barnes, Blair shows his talents expands beyond acting. The next in the series comes out in the fall!
