Summer makes everything better, including reading. It’s the sunlight, the breezes, the accompanying fruity beverages. The locations: beach, park, pool. Summer reading is pure fun.

Raney Moore, the heroine of my new novel, Do This For Me, doesn’t really get fun. She’s too busy climbing the ladder at her law firm, managing her daughters’ lives, and investigating how her perfect marriage went awry. Gradually, she finds herself and her own brand of joy. The following books from my summer reading list are ones I’d recommend to Raney and any other take-charge woman who wants to relax and find some sunshiny fun.
