Summer is often a wonderful time to catch up on some books. Whether you are relaxing poolside, beachside or perhaps traveling by car or plane; you have a chance to read (or listen).  With that in mind, below is a list of what some of the staff at KHC Wealth Management are reading this summer – ranging from beach-worthy, book club-worthy to “heavier” topics:



Revenge Wears Prada: The Devil Returns by Lauren Weisberger – funny with a great twist!
Girl, Wash Your Face by Rachel Hollis – amazing and funny
Twisted Prey by John Sanford – typical mystery genre
Lillian Boxworth Takes a Walk by Kathleen Mooney – a work of fiction about a female New Yorker’s adventures from the Jazz Age to the 1980s
Bury the Lead by David Rosenfelt – if you love dogs and mysteries, this is the book and series for you!


Book-Club Worthy
