Connect Five Friday – Beach House novels

It’s time once again for Connect Five Friday, hosted at Book Date by Kathryn – the meme where we share five book/reading things that connect in some way.

This is the last weekend of summer. Hard to believe. This summer sped by and not once did we get to go swimming or go to the beach. I did read some books about summer, about being at the beach.

I was surprised to see so many books entitled “The Beach House”.

 Here are 5 books with that title:

Becah House Monroe 7512

Mary Alice Monroe. This is the only one I have read and I loved the whole series.

“Caretta Rutledge thought she’d left her Southern roots and troubled family far behind. But an unusual request from her mother coming just as her own life is spinning out of control has Cara heading back to the scenic Lowcountry of her childhood summers. Before long, the rhythms of the island open her heart in wonderful ways as she repairs the family beach house”

Jane Green

“Nan Powell is a free-spirited, sixty-five-year-old widow who’s not above skinny-dipping in her neighbors’ pools when they’re away and who dearly loves her Nantucket home. But when she discovers that the money she thought would last forever is dwindling, she realizes she must make drastic changes to save her beloved house. So Nan takes out an ad: Rooms to rent for the summer in a beautiful old Nantucket home with water views and direct access to the beach.”

Beach House Patterson 7510

James Patterson

“Jack Mullen is a driven student of the law. His brother Peter is a servant of the rich, parking the cars of the Hamptons’ elite — and perhaps satisfying their more intimate needs as well. Then Peter’s body is found on the beach. Jack knows the drowning was no accident, but someone’s unlimited power and money have bought the cops, the judges, the system. Now Jack is learning a lesson in justice he never got in law school ..”

Rachel Hanna

“Julie’s husband of twenty-one years was living a secret life, which ended her marriage and forced her to start over alone at forty-three years old.

Faced with a new reality, she decides to rebuild her life on an island off the coast of South Carolina and learn to make it on her own.”

Georgia Bockoven

“The beach house is a peaceful haven, a place to escape everyday problems. Here, three families find their feelings intensified and their lives transformed each summer.”

Here are some photos from beaches I have visited over the years:
