It's summer! The perfect time to relax and delve into a good book.  Whether you are looking for a fast paced thriller, the latest novel everyone is talking about, or just a book to savor and enjoy, the Merrick Library has what you are looking for.  During this summer season, we will be recommending titles for you to enjoy!

The Great Escape, by Susan Elizabeth Phillips
In this hilariously heartwarming sequel to Call Me Irresistible, Lucy Jorik, the daughter of the former president of the U.S., jilts her soon-to-be husband at the altar and makes a run for it on the back of a stranger's motorcycle, finally embarking on the adventure she has been waiting for. This spicy romance delivers on what Phillips’ fans have come to expect – It is a perfect combination of wit, sexual chemistry, complex characters and a satisfying romance!  

 The Next Best Thing, by Jennifer Weiner
Believing she is realizing her dreams when her sitcom is bought, television writer Ruth Saunders finds her happiness threatened by demanding actors and executives as well as an unrequited crush on her boss and her septuagenarian grandmother's upcoming wedding. This is a must read for anyone who likes smart, funny fiction!

The After Wife, by Gigi Levangie Grazer
Hannah Bernal's husband is dead, she has been fired, she may lose her house, and she may lose her daughter; she goes on a journey of self-discovery to transform her life.  Gigi Levangie Grazer, the New York Times bestselling author of The Starter Wife, returns with a hilarious and spirited tale of love - both lost and found.

The Witness, by Nora Roberts
Having had a traumatic experience 12 years prior, Abigail Lowery lives in a remote area, holed up on a house with high-tech security measures, a fierce guard dog and a cache of weapons, but this only serves to further intrigue the police chief, who aims to protect Abigal from what she fears. With a quirky, unforgettable heroine and a pulse-pounding plotline, Nora Roberts presents a riveting new read that cements her place as today's most reliably entertaining thriller author—and will leave people hungering for more.
