Hi! I’m Kahille with the Book Channel Online.

 Are you planning on a deep beach tan or taking a much-needed vay-cay…or just planning some quiet ‘me’ time this summer? 

We have some great Summer reads for you.

Some are new; some, not so new – but they’re all sure to heat you up while you sip that seaside mango martini smoothie!  

Have you ever had a bitter rival that you could never get rid of, no matter how hard you tried? Well…that’s what’s up in The Woman Next Door by Yewande Omotoso

Hortensia and Marion are neighbors. Both are successful women with impressive careers. But both are living with questions, disappointments, and secrets that have brought them shame. And they each have something the other woman deeply wants. Sworn enemies, the two share a deliberate hostility. 

But, one day, an unexpected event forces them together. Can they discover common ground or must scorned women forever live the hell of their fury?

Your Summer will get steamy hot with our next pick — STRATEGIC SEDUCTION 

Cheris Hodges dazzles readers with a memorable romantic sizzler featuring two headstrong characters – the heir of a hotel empire and a Public Relations pro – who come together for business…and pleasure.

Alicia needs a major career boot and has no time for romance. Richmond is on a make-or-break project. But she and Richmond can’t see eye-to-eye on anything – except that the reckless attraction between them is sizzling, off-the-charts, trouble.

Take a deep dive into colonial history

Never Caught: The Washington’s Relentless Pursuit of Their Runaway Slave, Ona Judge 

Ona was once the prized property of President George Washington and his wife Martha. When Ona escaped, an intense, years-long manhunt – organized by Washington himself – began. The attempt to capture Ona – by any means necessary – lasted even beyond Washington’s presidency. Author Erica Dunbar reveals the story of a woman who made the decision to run for her life, leaving behind her family, friends and life in the President’s house. 

How’s that for getting your cherry tree chopped, George? Never Caught is not just another freedom story; it’s a portrait of a Washington few people knew.


If you love family sagas (and the melodrama they bring), No One Is Coming to Save Us by Stephanie Watts was made for you.


Long Island’s gold coast goes black in this brilliant recasting of F. Scott Fitzgerald’s classic The Great Gatsby. 

JJ returns home after seventeen years gone. He plans to build his dream home and marry is childhood sweetheart, Ava. But everything and everyone has changed. Ava is now married and wants a baby more than anything else. JJ’s wealth brings a meddling cast of characters to consider what more they want and deserve from life – and how they might go about getting it.

As you work on your outer glow, get your inner glow to shine too!
