    oh jane green is also good for mindless chick lit. most of her stories take place in england, but having lived there, it was easy enough to catch on and know where she was talking about. i'm not sure if it would take away from the story if you haven't visited london.

      Keeping Faith was pretty good.

          Lauren Weisenberg "Chasing Harry Winston"
          Those sound great. Thanks Glenda. But don't worry about the books. You have much more pressing and exciting matters to concern yourself with that day.

              One of my fav books is Bitten by Kelley Armstrong.. not sure how good of a book for the beach it would be.. but I loved it :) And definitely got some sexy stuff in it!

                i just bought the time traveler's wife! it was on sale at target today. i don't even really know what it's about but between the blurb on the back and the recommendations here, i think i'll like it! i want to start it now but i am forcing myself to wait until we leave.

                    i just finished 2 - the david sedaris (when you are engulfed in flames - hilarious!!) and one called promise not to tell. it was SO good. it's a mystery, i guess, but not cheesy. i don't remember who it's by - my sister already took it home w/ her.

                      I think Promise not to Tell is by Harlan Coben...very good book!! I like Harlan Coben books too...

                      edit..just looked it up and it was Tell No One..close though.
