Summer Reading anyone?

I guess some adults only read in the summer. Or only read on the beach. Kathye Petrie wrote an article about what writers like me are reading this summer, and it got picked up in galleycat. Cool!

Still doing the Wives.

This summer I'm reading every book I can find that ends in "wife."

The Wife
A Suitable Wife
The Senator's Wife
American Wife

I might have to branch into 'Daughter' just to mix it up. I'm taking a break with a few un Wifey titles right now. It occurs to me that I could have named STANDING STILL "Kidnapped Wife."
