Saturday Night at the Lakeside Supper Club by J. Ryan Stradal
You will be engrossed in this story about the four generations of a family who run a Wisconsin supper club. The writing is crisp—it transports you to the small town supper club so you can experience the joy and sadness of its owners.
Same Time Next Summer by Annabel Monoghan
First love is not supposed to be forever love—well, until it is. This book certainly is one to take with you to the beach, but I read it on a rainy Sunday afternoon. The ending is predictable, just like you want it to be.
Bad Summer People by Emma Rosenblum
