Magic: A Novel by Danielle Steel

Magic: A NovelMagic: A Novel by Danielle Steel
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Magic is a perfect book to throw in your beach bag and enjoy a day of frivolous reading at the beach or the pool. In classic Danielle Steel style, this story follows three couples who attend a glamorous Paris dinner party known as the White Dinner. The story begins at the party and as the year unfolds some of the party guests struggle with relationships while others find new love. The characters are one dimensional, the plot is obvious, the setting are extravagant and entirely unrealistic, and yet it is still a fun read and great way to escape from reality for an afternoon.

Sparing the Heart (Pastime Pursuits #3)

Sparing the Heart (Pastime Pursuits #3)Sparing the Heart by Tracy Krimmer
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

A cute story about starting over, Sparing the Heart is a sweet story with bowling as the central theme. The main character Katie is trying to come to terms with her father death and she joins a bowling league to help her get out and make some new friends. Katie finds more than she bargained for when she falls for a member of the team, but he is already engaged. The story moves well and the characters are friendly and relatable. This was a fun book - perfect for a summer beach read.
