3 Beach Reads from Carrie Doyle

BY The Editors | June 30, 2017 | Feature

Murder mystery writer Carrie Doyle picks three Hamptons books to pack in your beach bag this summer.

East Hampton-based writer and voracious reader Carrie Doyle—whose new book Death on West End Road ($16, Dunemere Books), the third installment of her Hamptons Murder Mystery Series, is out now—shares three Hamptons-based books she’s ready to dive into this summer. All three authors, plus Doyle (who serves as event committee co-chair), will appear at Authors Night at the East Hampton Library Aug. 12.

Heart to Table: A Year of Cooking For the People I Love by Megan O’Block
“Expert entertainer and inspiring chef O’Block specializes in healthy Italian meals that are delicious and easy. With her tips and menu suggestions, this is all you need for an alfresco dinner in the Hamptons.”

It Happens in the Hamptons by Holly Peterson
$16, William Morrow Paperbacks
“Best-selling author Peterson takes on class warfare when newcomer Katie Doyle moves to Southampton with her young son and must navigate between the wealthy country club world that her boyfriend relishes, and the middle class crowd where she feels more comfortable. It takes a local surfer’s wisdom to help her figure out where she belongs.”

Two Turns From Zero: Pushing to Higher Fitness Goals—Converting Them to Life Strength by Stacey Griffith
$28, William Morrow
“It may be impossible to get a bike in SoulCycle rock star, instructor and guru Stacey Griffith’s sold-out classes, but now you can download her wisdom and empowering motivation in her new book. This is a candid story of endurance and challenging oneself to be the best.”
