I read The Summer Girls this week and at the end of the book, I wanted to know more! I had been looking forward to reading the most recent book by Mary Alice Monroe and this one did not disappoint. As I read I could almost sense the sun on my shoulders, the sea spray upon my face, the smell of the sea grass, and the feel of the sand on my feet....the Carolina beach!

Another beach trip over, another Mary Alice Monroe book finished. I've brought her books to the beach for several years now, and they are always the perfect thing for beach reading.

I can see myself doing exactly the same thing. Light but still full of ...more
