I can't believe it, my Kindle is down to 30 books. That's unheard of for me. Between the recommendations from Amazon, the selections from BookBub and Book Release Daily, my Kindle usually has at least 50 books on it. I am notorious for purchasing anything that is free or .99 and then I get suckered in. I am one of those people that hates reading a series out of order. I generally purchase them all, start at number one and don't stop until I get to the end. I have even been known to hold off starting a series until all the books are out. With that in mind, I found a great new author recently. Her name is SJ McCoy and her books are perfect for that summer beach reading. Her series is called - The Summer Lake Series.
The four books (with at least one new one on the way) start out with four main friends that grew up together - Pete, Missy, Ben and Emma in a town called Summer Lake. With each book at least one new person is added to the group but all four friends remain constants throughout the series.
The first book - Love Like You've Never Been Hurt tells the story of Jack and Emma. Jack is one of Pete's best friends and his business partner.
The second book - Work Like You Don't Need the Money tells the story of Pete and Holly. Holly is Emma's best friend from the city where Holly has her own shop.
The third book - Dance Like Nobody's Watching is the story of Dan and Missy. Dan is the brother of Jack who starts coming to town to become a mentor to Missy's son Scot. I think this is my favorite of the four books.
The fourth book - Fly Like You've Never Been Grounded is the story of Smoke and Laura. Smoke is the pilot for Jack and Pete's company and Laura is the cousin of Jack and Dan.
We have yet to hear about Ben's story (which I can't wait to read) and the next book in the lineup according to SJ McCoy's blog is Laugh Like You've Never Cried. It will be out in August and the story is about Michael - who is a friend of the original four but who was a minor character in several of the earlier books. I have my suspicions as to who he will end up with but I'll hold off for now.
And if you want to check out what author SJ McCoy envisions her guys to look out, check out her facebook page. She has them posted.
So, if you are headed to the beach, the pool or just some down time, check out SJ McCoy and her series about Summer Lake. I can't wait to hear what you think.
