Short Fun Beach Reads with Humor, Fantasy, & Romance

Spring and Summer adventures are all about fun. So funny romantic fantasies are a perfect read for Summer. I have to super fun and funny novellas for summer that both have a touch of fantasy: A Fine Cauldron of Fish and Back To the One I Love.

A whimsical tale of an invisible lover, a trickster god, and the vacation of a lifetime. 

It's summer on the Isle of Man and Andrew is looking for hot girls and good times. So when he meets the dreamy and seductive Margaid, he thinks he's hit the jackpot. There are only a couple of minor problems: Margaid lives in a cave under the sea, is invisible, and thinks that only Andrew's blood can save her from turning into a water horse! But hey, whoever said love was perfect!?
This short, single title comedy romance takes place on the island of the Celtic pagan god Manannán mac Lir. It's full of witch and wizard type fey magic and lots of romance and laughs.

Professional Reviews:
"A Fine Cauldron Of Fish is a very funny story of gods and sidhe on the Isle of Man. This is just a quick, fun read and one I highly recommend." Reviewer Chere Gruver of Paranormal Romance 

“What do you get when two clumsy people get together an outright laugh a minute comedy in A Fine Cauldron of Fish. A Fine Cauldron of Fish is the second book I have read by Ms. Amiri and I was happy to experience that Cornelia is such a universe writer from historical romance to now comedies but with still keeping her uniqueness that her fans love.” 
Reviewer by Cheryl Koch of Cheryls Book Nook

“A Fine Cauldron of Fish is hilarious. I laughed out loud several times through this story. Finding stories so creative and full of wit is a joy and I thoroughly enjoyed this one. If you like things a bit out of the ordinary and are in the mood for a fun light-heart read, then I recommend this.” Reviewer Vee at Night Owl Romance Book Reviews 

This is the anniversary year of the Woodstock Art & Music Festival. It happened 50 years ago. I was 12 years old at the time. I didn't go to Woodstock but I wish I had. So, I did go there in a way by writing this book.

The thrilling adventure of first love and self-discovery is just as groovy the second time around.
A free-spirited, baby boomer couple, Cash and Keith, find their marriage of forty-five years unraveling amid apathy, boredom and retirement. Cash feels Keith is no longer attracted to her and he’s consumed with a couch-potato life of streaming Firefly all day long. Trying to hang on to their marriage and rekindle the romance they lost along the way they turn to a counselor. The therapist uses an unorthodox magical method of a time-traveling Volkswagen van to cast them back into the garden…four days of Eden at Woodstock….the epic music festival… where they first fell in love.

Will the freedom of Woodstock lure Keith and Cash to push their individual boundaries and seek new lovers? Or can Déjà Vu and grooving to music….truly lead them to rediscover the peace, love, and harmony they once shared?

"A lovely tale that brought back memories for me about the good old hippy days. If you enjoy reading about older couples who have character and history, then this book is for you." Reviewed by 

I hope everyone has great summertime adventures and great summertime reading.
