Popsicles, cotton candy, triple-scooped ice cream cones – summertime is all about stealing a few moments with delicious sweet treats and delectable reads. Kick the summer off with a sweet love story by Emily Giffin, travel to sunny Los Angeles in The House of Bradbury or head to Manhattan and dive into the life of Tina Fontana in The Assistants. Still craving another treat? Try Sheila Grinell’s book Appetite for a sweet and sour story. Then, curl up for the weekend with the suspenseful new book from Mary Kubica.
