Top Ten Tuesday - Top Ten Books for the Beach

Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly feature hosted by the Broke & the Bookish

Today's topic, with summer about to start, is about reading at the beach. Since I seldom go to the beach, I decided to change it slightly. So my top ten will be books that take place in vacation destinations. I'm going to try to keep them with beach settings.

1. Love Finds You in Sunset Beach Hawaii by Robin Jones Gunn - This one fits  because it is set in Hawaii. For fans of Sierra Jensen, this is her love story.

2. Red Door Inn by Liz Johnson - This one fits because it is set in Prince Edward Island, though it doesn't actually happen on the beach.

3. When I Fall in Love by Susan May Warren - This one is set partially in Hawaii and partially in Minnesota. It's book 3 in the Christiansen Family Series, and my favorite of the series.

4. Sea Rose Lane by Irene Hannon - This one's set in the coastal town of Hope Harbor. The cover shows the beach on it, and it's on my reading list to read soon. Like really soon.

5. The Siren by Kiera Cass - This one has intrigued me ever since I first saw it one someone's list. I'm guessing that I need to check it out of the library soon as I keep hearing good things about it. I picked it for this list because of the cover.

6. Forever Safe by Jody Hedlund - This one takes place in part in New York, part in Newport, and part at a remote lighthouse. There is one scene that actually takes place on the beach at the lighthouse. I picked this one because of the one scene that happens on the beach.

7. Until We Meet Again by Renee Collins - This is a time travel romance. The interesting thing about this one though is that the spot where the two time periods collide is on the private beach of the property. I really enjoyed this one.

8. Playing the Part by Jen Turano - This one was hilarious. I picked this one because the majority of the book occurs on a private estate that has its own dock on the Hudson River. So not a beach, but still it kinda fits.

9. Promise of a Family by JoAnn Brown - I don't normally feature the Love Inspired Historical line on my blog, but this one fits my beach theme today. The cover shows two little girls on the beach, and the book itself is set in a small coastal town in England. And the hero's a sea captain.

10. Donovan's Daughter by Lori Wick - This is probably one of my all time favorite books. I'm not sure why. This one fits my beach category because when Marcail and Alex go visit his family in Fort Bragg, there is a scene with the family on the beach.


  1. Ooooo these look like some good Beach books! I haven't read any of them except - Donovan's Daughters. I will have to start adding some to my list.

  2. YES! 'Red Door,' that is a perfect beach read, albeit one I forgot to add to my list last week. Glad to see it on yours. :)
