Chick Lit May Scavenger Hunt….

Chick Lit May Scavenger Hunt….

B is for BEACH (and the second stop of the #ChickLitMay Scavenger Hunt)


Which should come as no surprise… Since, well… I am Feeling Beachie after all. And even though I am about to move away from the beach, I will always be a beach girl at heart.

When I think of Chick Lit I can’t help but think about beaches. As a reader, I have very eclectic taste in books. But if I’m on vacation, or if it’s the summer, and I am able to lounge on the beach the only genre I will only be reading will be chick lit. I don’t know what it is. There is something about light hearted, humorous romantic books that I think that goes perfectly with sun on your face, warm sand between your toes, and the scent of the ocean filling your nose. Probably because more often then not one of the main characters has a romantic moment on a beach…


And really, is there anything more romantic then a first kiss, at night, besides the ocean? I don’t think so…

In Dangled Carat, my real life chick lit novel about my attempt to convert a commitment phobic man into a doting husband, I share how our first kiss was on the beach, at night, while sitting in a lifeguard stand. It is funny, I remember the night like it was yesterday. At the time, I didn’t have a clue how much drama there would be in our relationship, but I did think our first kiss would be amazing in a book….

    1. This is true ,some of the links dont work . So how can we win if all the answers dont show up for us?

      1. Ann – every participating author should be posting the letter before and after theirs. I recommend visiting as many sites as you can. If you can’t find a letter, let me know and i will see if I can get it for you.

    2. Debby – it should all be working now. I posted earlier then I should have by accident…

    1. Ellen – yep, you can take me away from the beach but you can’t take the beach out of me!

    1. Norma – I am not sure of anything…. I will miss the beach so much, but we really only get to enjoy it a few months of the year. Our new location will be better for most of the year, but I will always miss the beach. Thank goodness I have a lot of friends still here…

    1. Tracy – you have never been to the ocean? wow… I didn’t know that. Yes, we are leaving the beach… I am still a little shocked 🙂

  1. I don’t go to the beach very often, but I love knowing that if I wanted to go on the spur of the moment, I can always be to a beach within a half hour. There’s nothing quite like reading a good beachy vacation romance type novel when you want to get away for a while! How far away from the beach will you be moving?

    1. Arielle – I am still close enough for a spur of the moment trip. I am moving about an hour away. But that hour away is my current commute to work, so it really isn’t bad. It just will be different since i will no longer be able to just roll out of bed and go to the beach.
