FRIDAY POTPOURRI: BREAKFAST ON THE PATIO WITH BOOKS

Last week, a new fence around my patio was constructed…and this week, it has a fresh coat of paint.

So I decided to take breakfast out there, along with the book I am reading.  On the Rocks, by Erin Duffy, is a light, fun, but emotional read that takes us into the world of a woman whose heartbreak was publicized…on Facebook.

Six months ago, Abby’s life fell apart for the entire world to see. Her longtime boyfriend-turned-fiancé, Ben, unceremoniously dumped her—on Facebook—while she was trying on dresses for the big day.

When the usual remedies—multiple pints of Ben & Jerry’s, sweatpants, and a comfy couch—fail to work their magic, her best friend, Grace, devises a plan to get Abby back on her game. She and Abby are going to escape Boston and its reminders of Ben and head to Newport for the summer. There, in a quaint rented cottage by the sea, the girls will enjoy cool breezes, cocktails, and crowds of gorgeous men.

Sounds good, huh?  I’m loving it.  I also came indoors to read at my dining room table, with a view of my newly painted patio.

Yesterday’s mail brought a new book from one of my favorite romantic suspense authors, Melinda Leigh.  She Can Hide is part of a series that I’ve been hooked on since the very first book.

From the moment Officer Ethan Hale pulls Abby Foster from icy waters, he senses there’s more to her than meets the eye. Abby has no memory of the accident that submerged her car in the frozen river. Three years ago, Abby was kidnapped and abandoned in a well for a week. The botched police investigation nearly killed her. Abby had moved to the mountains of Pennsylvania for a fresh start, but when it becomes clear that this car crash wasn’t an accident, she knows the violence from her past has caught up with her.

But Abby’s former assailant was convicted and imprisoned, so who else wants her dead?

What enticing books are you eager to start reading?  Where do you enjoy having a quiet breakfast at home?
