I usually re-read all of Robin Pilcher and Rosamunde Pilcher's books every summer (they just seem like good pool-side reading). And I always have a non-fiction or two going at the same time, usually something to do with sustainability or global warming or travel. (It depends what's available at the library.)

My husband's great-grandfather had a brother who disappeared in his mid 20s and was never heard of again...I've always wished we could solve that one. And there are questions surrounding the death of our former foster son years ago. There is some suspicion it might have been murder. But there's no way to prove it. So...the same question back to you. Are there mysteries in your life too? - Kristen(less)

"This is tagged as romance, but it really isn't. It's more the story of how a woman learns to heal after a horrible tragedy upends her life. With the hint of a possible romance possible in the after-epilouge (as in - not in this book, but maybe in ano" Read more of this review »
