Summer Listens

By Sarah Barning

I love to travel, especially in the summer. One of the things I look forward to most on my trips is what audiobook to listen on the long car rides. While listening, you are taken to another destination. Sometimes it is fun to listen to a cozy mystery on the way up to a cabin in the woods, or Chic Lit on a girl’s trip to the beach. Ten Beach Road CoverI like to match the theme of my trip with my audiobook. Wendy Wax’s Ten Beach Road series narrated by Amy Rubinate, is on the top of my list this summer. Ten Beach Road, Ocean Beach, and The House on Mermaid Point are perfect summer listens. I am also looking forward to branching out of the series and listen to A Week at the Lake, which is a USA Today bestseller.

Library Journal reviewed Ten Beach Road and said, “Wax keeps the plot twists coming and makes this great escape reading, perfect for the beach.” Publishers Weekly said Ocean Beach is “Just the right amount of suspense and drama for a beach [listen].” That sounds like something everyone can enjoy.
