In packing for Florida, I decided to capitalize on the BEACH THEME ((Yes, I am packing my swim suit, just in case! Sunday is a “day off” for me in between a class on Saturday and a guild meeting on Monday..so I just might NEED a beach book, right?)) and downloaded this freebie to my Kindle!
A lot of times I look down the amazon page to see how many “printed” pages the book would be…I’m not sure, this one just lists kb, not page count….so it could be just a short story --but here you go!
It’s called…Life’s a BEACH!
By the bestselling author of Must Love Dogs, the story of two grown-up sisters who fight like cats and dogs -- but call each other at least twice a day.
Luckily for her legions of fans, Claire Cook returns with another sparkling romantic comedy that's reminiscent of Must Love Dogs in all the right ways, but very much its own animal -- about a relationship-challenged single woman, her quirky-to-put-it-mildly extended family, and the summer the shark movie came to town.
Life's a bit of a beach these days for Ginger Walsh, who's single at forty-one and living back home in the family FROG (Finished Room Over Garage). She's hoping for a more fulfilling life as a sea glass artist, but instead is babysitting her sister's kids and sharing overnights with Noah, her sexy artist boyfriend with commitment issues and a dog Ginger's cat isn't too crazy about.
Geri, her BlackBerry-obsessed sister, is also nearly over the deep end about her pending fiftieth birthday (and might just drag Ginger with her). Toss in a dumpster-picking father, a Kama Sutra T-shirt-wearing mother, a movie crew come to town with a very cute gaffer, an on-again-off-again glassblower boyfriend, plus a couple of Red Hat realtors, and hilarity ensues.

Enjoy! And as always….check the price when you go to download it. What is free today, may not be tomorrow!
I get lots of email asking me how/where I find these. I just look. Often times when I download something there are other links to follow at the bottom of the page. That lead to this one. You just have to be willing to search through lots of Bleehhgh to find the good stuff. For instance, a title that came up yesterday was something like "The Truth About Securing Your Retirement With IRA's" ((Can you see my eyes glaze over?)) There are a lot of text books, a lot of stuff I do NOT like...((I don't read vampires, sci-fi, or chainsaw murders, overly preachy-churchy or steamy threesomes, etc)) so if you like those, you'll need to search for those on your own. I just post what I like, thinking that someone else might like them too. There is no mystery other than that!
