Summer Reading–Beach Reads

beach_readsSummer means beach reading. Here is the first installment. “Vienna Nocturne” by Vivien Shotwell  is a “sweeping historical love story” involving Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart, then at the height of this fame,  and his muse, Anna Storace, a rising diva for whom he wrote some of his greatest arias. In “The Hurricane Sisters”  by Dorthea Benton Frank,  a post-grad crashing at the family beachhouse concocts a plan to rent it on the sly. Just another day in Frank’s low country.  In “Save the Date” by Mary Kay Andrews, a Savannah florist trying finds that a prestigious society wedding is bringing headaches galore.  If that was not enough trouble, there is a persistent suitor that won’t just let her be.  For an even more sugary confection we have “The Chance” by Robyn Carr, where a an FBI agent on the mend from a gunshot wound meets a man with a Dark Past.  Can a reformed criminal and one of the Fed’s finest make it work? “ A Family Affair” by Fern Michaels is a veritable Cinderella tale  involving a struggling dancer and a wealthy foreign prince.  Yes, a prince.   And for film fans, we have “Pompeii (DVD),”  in which a gladiator (99%) falls hard for a merchants daughter (1%) under the shadow of Mt Vesuvius. Shall we just say that fireworks ensue?
