3 Fun Fiction Reads for Spring 2024

Hi! I'm


I'm a Certified Health Coach, longtime blogger, and host of Elizabeth Eats on YouTube. In addition to writing recipes (I love to eat!), I'm a strong believer that life is too short to settle for anything less than living your best life.

If you’ve ever read this blog then you know I love to escape in an easy fun fiction book when I need some downtime.

Indulging in a good story is an easy way to create a healthy distraction and give your mind a break from day-to-day stressors.

Today I want to share three fun books that are good for the beach, vacation, or just relaxing on an easy weekend.

The Golden Couple

This thriller about a married couple that seems to have it all is a page-turner!

Wealthy Washington suburbanites Marissa and Matthew Bishop seem to have it all―until Marissa is unfaithful. Beneath their veneer of perfection is a relationship riven by work and a lack of intimacy. She wants to repair things for the sake of their eight-year-old son and because she loves her husband. Enter Avery Chambers.

Avery is a therapist who lost her professional license. Still, it doesn’t stop her from counseling those in crisis, though they have to adhere to her unorthodox methods. And the Bishops are desperate.
When they glide through Avery’s door and Marissa reveals her infidelity, all three are set on a collision course. Because the biggest secrets in the room are still hidden, and it’s no longer simply a marriage that’s in danger.

The Arrangement

Ok, I have to admit I was bored with the first two chapters of this book, but interested enough to keep reading. It gets… good! And dark and weird. Lots of twists and turns and I’d say if you like these types of thriller/relationship/mystery books then it’s a fun read. I recommend it.

Ainsley Greenburg is a fixer. It’s what she prides herself on. So, when she realizes her marriage is at its breaking point, she decides to repair it, no matter the cost. Approaching her husband to propose the arrangement is supposed to be the hard part, but Peter agrees to the salacious plan almost immediately.

What Alice Forgot

This is a fantastic book. It came out in 2009 and somehow ended up in my unread books pile. When I finished my last book early I grabbed this one from my shelf and I’m so glad I did! It’s an endearing, witty story.

Alice Love is twenty-nine, crazy about her husband, and pregnant with her first child. So imagine Alice’s surprise when she comes to on the floor of a gym (a gym! She HATES the gym) and is whisked off to the hospital where she discovers the honeymoon is truly over—she’s getting divorced, she has three kids, and she’s actually 39 years old. Alice must reconstruct the events of a lost decade, and find out whether it’s possible to reconstruct her life at the same time. She has to figure out why her sister hardly talks to her, and how is it that she’s become one of those super skinny moms with really expensive clothes. Ultimately, Alice must discover whether forgetting is a blessing or a curse, and whether it’s possible to start over.
