July 4th Beach Reads
Are you ready for the long July 4th weekend? We couldn’t be more excited for a few days off and to spend extra time with our beach reads!
We can always count on Giffin for smart, witty stories featuring relatable women and situations. This time we meet sisters Josie and Meredith who, in their late 30s, are each questioning the life they have versus the life they always wanted. Giffin skillfully shows that it’s okay for women to want more—and she does it without playing into Sex and the City style stereotypes.
Miranda’s first foray into adult fiction is a heart-stopping thriller about the disappearance of two young women—a decade apart. The story is told in reverse order, and what can seem gimmicky works in this expertly paced tale that will leave you furiously flipping the pages eager to know the truth.
