Booking Through Thursday

What’s the lightest, most “fluff” kind of book you’ve read recently?

Everything I've read this year so far as been pretty heavy, so I had to go back to October 2008.

The Beach House by Jane Green


Jane Green is a British born chic-lit author. When I need fluff, I go to her. Light read, usually fun, not challenging. So now that I see it has been almost a year since I have read fluff, it is time to read another one.

Here is the Synopsis:

The New York Times bestseller and ultimate beach read from the author of Second ChanceNan 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.Slowly people start moving in to the house, filling it with noise, laughter, and with tears. As the house comes alive again, Nan finds her family and friends expanding. Her son comes home for the summer, and then an unexpected visitor turns all their lives upside down. As she did so masterfully in her New York Times bestseller Second Chance, Jane Green once again proves herself one of the preeminent writers of contemporary
women's fiction.

I also wrote a review a few weeks ago HERE

I haven't read any Jane Green, but I tend to like "fluff." I may put my post up later today.
