What I Read This Month | July Monthly Wrap Up

After That Night by Karin Slaughter 

Author Karin Slaughter’s thriller features GBI investigator Will Trent and medical examiner Sara Linton. 

Linton’s life changed forever when a night out ended in a violent attack. Now, fifteen years later, as a successful doctor and to-be married shortly, she has to save an attacked woman, whose case, led by Trent, might be linked to her own. 

Chase Me by Tessa Bailey

From Tessa Bailey, bestselling author of It Happened One Summer and Hook, Line, and Sinker, comes a sexy and hilarious rom-com trilogy about three broke and beautiful strangers who share an apartment in NYC.

Chase Me follows college drop-out and struggling actress Roxy Cumberland, who signs up to perform singing telegrams. Her first customer is lawyer Louis McNally II, a gorgeous, cocky Manhattan trust funder who is intrigued by the sassy wit and sexy voice of the girl behind the bunny mask, and one look at her stunning face-followed by a mind-blowing kiss leaves him wanting more.

Cumberland does not need a spoiled rich guy, but there is more to McNally, who is determined to make her see it, even if it means chasing her all over the big apple. 

The Last Dragon King by Leia Stone

The Dragon King is looking for a wife; his only requirement is that the woman carries enough magic to produce an heir for him.

A watered-down human with just ten percent dragon magic lineage feels magic commanding her to present herself to the king in Jade City until her mother tells her a terrifying secret that could get her killed by the king himself.

This fantasy romance, the first of the Kings of Avalier series, could also be read as a standalone. 

Beach Rivals by Georgie Tilney

Fans of Emily Henry will surely love this enemies-to-lovers romance set near a beach bookshop in Bali.

Having yet to decide what to do in life, Clare applies for a three-month bookseller position on a Bali beach. It is not until she arrives there that she finds out that she is sharing the bookshop, and a flat with a handsome but infuriating American, Jack. 

Although they are polar opposites, it is only a matter of time before their relationship becomes more than professional. 

The Little French Village of Book Lovers by Nina George 

Nina George, author of the bestseller, The Little Paris Bookshop, returns with a tender story about the love of books in a small Provence town.  

Marie-Jeanne realises that she can see the marks love has left on the people around her and starts playing the role of a village matchmaker while helping her foster father, Francis, set up a mobile library that travels through the mountainous Nyons.

The only person Marie-Jeanne cannot find a partner for is herself. She believes that everyone must have a soulmate, but will she be able to recognise hers when love finally comes her way?
