Summer Feature 2014 by Charlie - Guest Post

Today Charlie from Miss Book Eater has stopped by to share her top 5 summer reads. Thanks for taking part Charlie. 

Top 5 Summer Reads on my TBR pile

For me Summer Reads are books that are light hearted and fun, but it can also range from Mysterious to a thriller or a novella in the Romance section; New Adult or Paranormal. I guess it still always depends what my mood is. As long as the books can be read in a couple of days or even a day sometimes for me, but as always I am rambling on. ^_^

Let me now introduce you to my top 5 books I really would love to read this Summer. They are either on my TBR pile or I on my wish list to buy. So here it goes!

1. The Bookshop on the Corner (A Gingerbread Café Story) – Rebecca Raisin

Who said that only real heroes could be found in fiction?

Sarah Smith had an addiction – she was addicted to romance novels. The meet-cute, the passion, the drama and the gorgeous Now this wouldn’t have been such an issue if she hadn’t been the owner of the only bookshop in Ashford, Connecticut.

Ever since her close friend Lil, from The Gingerbread Café, had become engaged she had been yearning for a little love to turn her life. Except Sarah knew a good man was hard to find – especially in a tiny town like Ashford. That was until New York journalist, Ridge Warner stepped into her bookshop…

Love could be just around the corner for Sarah, but will she be able to truly believe that happy-ever-after can happen in real-life too!

2. Dear Lizzie – Annie Lyons

Two sisters. Twelve letters. One year that changes everything.

Lizzie and Bea Harris were always very close. They were sisters nothing could tear them apart. Until Bea dies at the age of thirty-five, leaving her sister twelve letters and a mission that change Lizzie’s life forever.

Alone for the first time Lizzie is left trying to pull together the pieces of a life she has for so long ignored. With Bea’s list of last requests, Lizzie has a chance to finally find a place for herself in the world - out from under the shadow of her sister.

3. You Make Me (Blurred Lines Book 1) – Erin McCarthy

The guy she wants…

Growing up on the coast of Maine with a revolving door of foster siblings, Caitlyn Michaud spent one intense and passionate year falling in love with her foster brother, Heath. Then he left without a word.

Isn’t the guy she needs…

Determined to move on, in college Caitlyn has risen above her small town impoverished roots and has joined a sorority, reinvented her appearance, and landed the right boyfriend in frat president Ethan.

But the perfect world she tried so hard to attain is ripped apart when Heath appears one night out of nowhere. Out of the military, Heath is as brooding and intense as ever, and he is determined not only to win her back, but to exact revenge on everyone who kept him from her…

And when one love allows her to breathe, but the other feels as essential to her life as air, how does she choose between them?

4. The Little Coffee shop of Kabul – Deborah Rodriguez

In a little coffee shop in one of the most dangerous places on five very different women come together.

SUNNY, the proud proprietor, who needs an ingenious plan - to keep her café and customers safe.

YAZMINA, a young pregnant woman stolen from her remote village and now abandoned on Kabul's violent streets.

CANDACE, a wealthy American who has finally left her husband her Afghan lover, the enigmatic Wakil.

ISABEL, a determined journalist with a secret that might keep her from the biggest story of her life.

And HALAJAN, the sixty-year-old den mother, whose long-hidden love affair breaks all the rules.

As these five women discover there's more to one another than meets the eye, they form a unique bond that will for ever change their lives and the lives of many others.

5. Give me Grace – Kate McCarthy (Give Me Book 3)

Book #3 in the Give Me series.

Casey Daniels has a past forged in Hell. Despite the friends, the endless supply of women, and the muscle car he spent years restoring, it still eats away at him.

Grace Paterson is in Sydney as a temporary bassist for tband Casey handles security for. She’s also infuriating, off-land completely irresistible.

A deal is struck, and despite their intense and powerful connection, both think it will be easy to walk away. But life can be more ruthless than either of them ever imagined. Not only does Grace have a secret she’s desperate to keep, Casey has questions from his past that he’s willing to do anything to get answers for.

It’s not until someone wants one of them dead that Casey realises his love for Grace is the one thing he could never walk away from.
