My Summer of Southern Discomfort by Stephanie Gayle

Here’s an easy book with enough (mild) action to keep going, not too much to think about so you can take a break as needed, and a reasonably interesting heroin (although she was dumb enough to sleep with her boss – I guess we needed a reason for her to move to Macon, Georgia.)  Natalie Goldberg, having been betrayed by her lover-boss, moves to a small town to work in the DA’s office and encounters a lovely neighbor, a murderer (whose case she must prosecute and is no direct danger to her), a battered woman who needs help, moral dilemmas, and coworkers who can’t quite figure her out. Happy ending guaranteed.

My Summer of Southern Discomfort would be a good beach book, a notch above the usual chick lit.
