To be fair, I'd also take a beach read to the Koffee Klatch and on a rainy day I'd definitely curl up in my favorite comfy chair with one.
For me a beach read is a sort of mini-vacation. I saw a sign the other day that said, "Reading give us a place to go when we have to stay where we are." That's exactly how I see it. A great book transports me to another place.
My favorite beach reads are mysteries. I also enjoy a good legal thriller or a spinetingling suspense, but my go-to read is most often a mystery. Maybe it's my background and my interest in what makes people tick.
What your favorite type of book to take to the beach... or to your favorite comfy chair?
Sparkle Abbey is the pseudonym of two mystery authors (Mary Lee Woods and Anita Carter). They are friends and neighbors as well as co-writers of the Pampered Pets Mystery Series.
The pen name was created by combining the names of their rescue pets--Sparkle (Mary Lee's cat) and Abbey (Anita's dog). Barking with the Stars is their latest book and The Dogfather, their next book, will be out in August.
