Rainy Day Reads

My favorite reading weather is rainy day reading weather.  There’s something about the sound of the rain hitting the windowpane and the slight crackle of thunder that makes rainy days the perfect days to snuggle up with a favorite book.  In honor of rainy days and summer storms, try one of these reads that will have you longing for those blissful rainy, reading days.

There hasn’t been a Diane Chamberlain book that I have not loved.  In this novel, you’ll uncover a story about a mother’s love for her child and a town mystery.  When Laurel’s son Andy is suspected of arson, will she stand by her son and protect him forever?  Or will she side with the accusers?

And if you’re looking for a more factual rain story how about:

Rain- we read about it, write about it, and dream about it, but how much do we actually know about it?  This book takes a deep dive into the story of rain, and it is fascinating.
