In Secrets of the Tulip Sisters by Susan Mallery, the return of a wayward sibling psets life down on the (tulip) farm. The Almost Sisters by Joshilyn Jackson offers more sisterly drama, southern-style. Beach House for Rent by Mary Alice Monroe, which reprises the ‘strangers meet and bond at a seaside retreat’ motif, vies for the crown of Beach Read Queen. In Cocoa Beach by Beatriz Williams, a widow in prohibition-era Florida has reason to think her rakish husband was a bootlegger.
