brenda janowitzMany thanks to the tipster who sent us these! Today’s beach read of the day is actually a two-for-one, since we’ve discovered not one, but TWO novels that will keep you entertained while you play in the sun. SCOT ON THE ROCKS (How I survived my ex-boyfriend's wedding with my dignity ever so slightly intact) is the story of Brooke Miller, a Manhattan attorney who finds herself in a bit of trouble when she accepts an invitation to an ex-boyfriend’s wedding, only to find herself, just days before the wedding, without a proper date. Hilarity ensues. Really! Booklist called it "[a] breezy romantic comedy with plenty of laughs."

brenda janowitzJACK WITH A TWIST (Engaging your adversary and other things they don’t teach you in law school), continues Brooke’s story. In it, Brooke plans the wedding of her dreams, all while litigating the biggest case of her career…. which just so happens to be against her perfect fiancé. Marian Keyes called it “a funny, sweet romance” and Carole Matthews said it was “[a]nother fun-filled page-turner from Brenda.”

Check these two out if you are in the mood for a good laugh with a little romance thrown in for good measure.
