Beach read

I ran by Barnes and Noble tonight to grab a book to read on the cruise. There were so many good choices, but I ended up with Dixieland Sushi by Cara Lockwood. It's about a girl who grew up in a small southern town and moved up north for work. She then gets an invite to her cousin's wedding and discovers she is marrying her former love interest. She realizes she must find a fabulous date for the wedding and and invites a friend from work who just so happens to have a girlfriend who is her friend as well. They head down to Dixie and sparks fly. Along the way, Jen discovers and comes to terms with her heritage, her love life and herself.
     Sounds good to me! 

I have also read this book by the same author. It was a cute one! 


Has anyone else read these books or any others by Lockwood?

** Countdown begins til I'll lay beachside with a book in my hand and my toes in the sand!!! :)

these books look fabulous - maybe i will read them & pretend I am still on vaca? Also, love your nail polish picks - I just got back from florida & i am wearing the same ones (on my fingers is Bubble Bath, but they look almost the same) :) enjoy your cruise!

The covers are adorable - especially the second one. I have never read any of her books, but I think I might want to now. :)

Sounds like a fun read!

p.s. I'm finding Sushi for Beginners a little slow, but still cute. I read Angels by the same author and liked it a bit more.
