Late-season beach reads

beach_read   In “The Baker’s Secret” by Stephen Kiernan , Emma, a village baker in Normandy, has been secretly waging a one-woman war effort, bartering and distributing eggs, dribbles of petrol, and secret extra loaves to keep the village alive.  As D-Day approaches, the stakes of her activities grow higher.  In “You Say it First” by Susan Mallery, a theme-wedding planner is one Roman soldier short for her latest event.  In desperation, she asks the good-looking carpenter sitting in her office to fill in.  In “Any Dream Will Do”, a widowed pastor befriends a new parishioner.  Sparks fly, but he hasn’t reckoned with her secrets. In “Map of the Heart” by Susan Wiggs, a widow visits France, where she will learn family secrets and meet a handsome retired naval officer.   You don’t need a map to see where these stories are headed.
