Tired of all the snow, ice and grey weather? Wish you could escape to a tropical destination but don't have the budget? Well how about escaping with a great beach read? Try one of these titles for a break from the bitter cold:
It happened in South Beach by Jennie Klassel
Beachcomber by Karen Robards
Tropical getaway by Roxanne St. Claire
Tired of squinting while reading? Getting a headache from focusing too hard for too long? You're not alone — one in six Americans over the age of 45 have trouble reading small print.
Isn't it exciting when two perfectly unrelated, but equally beloved, things mash together? I love reading romances and I love watching ice hockey. Apparently, I am not the only one. Rachel Gibson and Deirdre Martin are just two of the authors who have written fiction with hockey players as the heroes. Grab one today and get in a little reading before the Wings take on the Blackhawks tomorrow.
Body check by Deirdre Martin
