Best Holiday Reads

Whether you're traveling, enjoying a staycation, or sneaking in a few chapters at the end of a work day or once the kids are in bed, I hope you find some fun and escapism within the pages of books and beyond this summer. In case you're looking for a few places to start, I've chosen a mix of genres and both older and newer books for some reading inspiration. They are all entertaining, well written (in my humble opinion) and for the most part, fast paced, just as I think a perfect summer read should be.

For even more recommendations of new releases, check out my Summer Reading Guide 2019 and of course, The Lady Evelyn Mysteries may also serve to add a little mystery to any summer day.
