A Place in the Sun by R. S. Grey – Value $14.99
I was happy to see that this paperback is a new release. (It just came out in October of 2016.) The story isn’t the most original—lovelorn lady takes a getaway to Italy and romance ensues—but there are some uniquely charming twists and turns along the way.
Book Summary from Amazon:
A full-length STANDALONE romance from USA TODAY bestselling author R.S. Grey. When her mother’s incessant matchmaking hits an all-time high, Georgie Archibald does what any sensible woman would do: she flees the country. Seeking refuge in the picturesque seaside village of Vernazza, Italy, Georgie’s only plan is to lie low, gorge herself on gelato, and let the wine and waves wash her troubles away…that is until she wakes up in a bed that belongs to the most romantic-looking man she’s ever seen. Gianluca. After going out of his way to rescue her, the former London financier turned mysterious recluse makes it clear that despite acting as her white knight, he has no plans to co-star in her fairytale. But Georgie isn’t asking for his heart—she’s merely intrigued. After all, Gianluca isn’t just gorgeous—tall and tan from days spent in the sun—his touch sets her world on fire. With him, Georgie experiences the most intoxicating passion she’s ever known, and it only takes a few steamy nights for her to realize that sometimes running away from trouble is the best way to find it.
At the very least, this spicy story set in sunny Italy certainly warms up the wintertime!
There’s even a note from the author! How sweet!
Hemingway Kitchen Towel by BrineHound – Value $12.00
This towel is so beautiful! It’s 100% cotton, so it feels soft yet very sturdy.
The quote is all about dining on what else, but oysters! It is a romance novel box, after all. What food is more romantic than oysters?
This towel will be super handy to have hung near my sink, but I’m trying to see if there’s another way I can display this lovely towel. It’s so elegant, I want to treat it in a more artful way.
Jane Austen Ornament by Neurons Not Included – Value $12.00
This metal ornament arrived just in time for the holidays! It’s printed with the spines of several classic Austen books.
It’s about the size of a credit card, and it has a good weight to it. I think now that the holidays are done, this little ornament could make for a durable bookmark, too!
Verdict: Beaulitful Reads is a fun book box for romance readers. The non-book items were particularly classy this time around! The value of the items is about $39.00, though I felt like the ornament might be a little pricey for what it is. That said, the box feels pretty fairly priced at $24.00. I think if you’re an avid reader looking for a way to discover fresh romance books, this is could be a great box for you!
