Every summer, I pick an author, and try to read everything I can from that author. My first summer doing this, I picked Mary Higgins Clark (which doesn’t meet all the requirements I now have for my Summer Author). I forgot a few summers, but last one was Louise Penny. What a fun summer that was!
This year, I discovered Jacqueline Winspear, and she is perfect for this project. I am on book 3 of her Maisie Dobbs series. It has all the elements I require to be a good Summer Author:
– light reading, but I do like to learn something while reading
– enough book published in the series that can entertain me through a summer
– travel to another period or country
