5 summery new novels perfect for your next beach trip

From flirty modern romances to retro coming-of-age stories, there's a book here for every beachgoer.

The Last Book Party by Karen Dukess (out July 9)

Karen Dukess’ debut novel is set in 1980s New York and Cape Cod, starring Eve Rosen, a young woman who lands a job as a famous New Yorker writer’s research assistant. “Written with fresh confidence and verve, this first novel is a bibliophile’s delight, with plenty of title-dropping and humorous digs at the publishing scene of the 1980s. The lyrical evocations of the Cape Cod landscape will also enchant readers seeking that perfect summer read,” writes Kirkus.
