Books Read: Sunlounger

Take a trip around the world with 44 of the hottest writers in Women's fiction.

This collection of sun-kissed short stories will have you boarding a millionaire's yacht in St Tropez, exploring a sheik's palace in Dubai, swimming with dolphins in Australia, partying in Ibiza, surfing in Hawaii, exploring ancient ruins in Turkey and Cambodia and sipping Limoncello in Italy! 

Whether you read it on your favourite beach (Sunlounger features golden sands from Greece to Thailand) or on your daily commute or coffee break you will be spirited away on a variety of adventures - some will make you chuckle, some will make your heart pang, others will inspire you to live your life to the max!

I featured this fantastic collection of short stories earlier this summer shortly before it was published then downloaded a copy as soon as it was available on Amazon but it has taken me a couple of months to finally finish reading as I've only been reading a couple of stories in between reading my review books.

Sunlounger, the brainchild of bestselling author Belinda Jones, has stories from some of today's top women's fiction writers and features destinations from all across the world including some of the places that I would love to visit one day such as Iceland, Dubai and Australia to name just a few.

I'm not going to review any of the individual stories in the collection as I could go on and on but I will say that there's definitely a story for most occasions in this collection.  There are stories that will make you cry, some that will make you think and others that will have you chuckling like a loon!

But one of the things I loved the most was that it also gave aspiring authors the chance to be included as there was a short story competition run offering the winner the chance to be included in the collection but the talent was so great that in the end four stories were included, One Hundred Proposals by Holly Martin, Hanoi Jane by Kate Guest, Fia McQueen's Great Escape by Pernille Hughes and Escape to Runaway Bay by Kiri Mills, all worthy inclusions in my opinion.

At its current price of £1.99 Sunlounger is definitely value for money at less than 5p per story!
