All of Spring and part way through Summer we had seen nothing but rain so the change is very nice. Now we are enjoying playing at the park, going on road trips and swimming. Another thing I enjoy personally during the Summer months is reading. If its raining I enjoy a good book indoors and especially if we are traveling or poolside I never forget my book.

Just recently I had the pleasure of receiving a copy of The Breakdown by B.A. Paris to read this Summer.

Plot Summary: 

If you can’t trust yourself, who can you trust? Cass is having a hard time since the night she saw the car in the woods. It was on the winding rural road, in the middle of a downpour, and a woman was sitting inside―the woman who was killed. She’s been trying to put the crime out of her mind; what could she have done, really?

But since then, she’s been forgetting every little thing. Where she left the car; if she took her pills; even the alarm code. The only thing she can’t forget is that woman, the woman she might have saved, and the terrible nagging guilt.

With some books I read, it takes a chapter or two to really get interested in the book but this one was different. I was hooked from the start and found it very hard to put the book down. It didn’t take me long to finish the book because it was so addictive. Funny as it may sound but I could feel my heart beat faster in my chest while reading the intense parts of the book making me hungry to read more.

This is one of the best books I have read and I can’t wait to see what B.A. Paris comes out with next.

What are your poolside must-haves? Will The Breakdown be part of that list this Summer? Tell me in the comments below. 😉

  • I’ve only had once poolside retreat this summer but I definitely hope it’s not my last! Thank for this list so I can make sure I have everything I need once I get back to one of my favorite summertime places . . .

  • Frosted Events

    Wow. This is sounds so interesting book and I always want to read when I’m in a Vacation I will check this and have this on our Summer Vacation.

  • redheadmomblog

    This sounds like an interesting book. I love finding good books to read. Have a great summer!

  • Jennifer G

    I try to put things aside and read a good book at least every weekend. The weekends in the summer do end up getting super busy for us with football, birthdays and both my husband and I working full time. I work from home with the kids so it makes things a little more “interesting” I haven’t had time to get any reading in. I think I’d better make some time.

  • Christy Garrett

    I have been trying hard to read on Sundays. However, the last several I have missed that time. Maybe I can get some light reading in this evening. When I am at the pool, I am usually in it because it is so hot.

  • I’d love to be able to read a good book while sitting by the pool. But with two kids and summer vacations I’m usually in the pool with them or watching them like a hawk.

  • I love reading when I go on vacation. I have to stay out of the sun (I get sun poisoning) so I find shade and read. I’m going to check this book out before I head out in 2 weeks for vaca.

  • Shirley Eliza Martinez

    I have not read a good book in a while. I’ll have to check this one out.

  • These are all great things to have by the pool! Sounds like an interesting book!

  • Liz Cochico

    I’m sure this book will get me hooked, too. The plot sounds very interesting. I will get a copy of this.

  • You’ve covered it. This sounds like a great beach / pool read!
