Ooh, I’m always on the lookout for a good beach read, Mitzi. And I haven’t read any of these! I think I’ve read all the books by Dorothea Benton Frank, another fabulous SC gal with a great writing style. I’m pinning this!
I know-Dorothea Benton Frank is always a SC book favorite!
thanks for pinning, Susan 🙂

These all sounds wonderful. I’m going to have to get some of these on my reading list too.
And…my reading list just grew by four! There’s always room for another book right? I need to sneak off so I can get reading! By the way, I LOVE your blog. It’s what my youngest would call a “bestest favorite”..
