Ever since the quarantine started, I have made an effort to read books set in other places as a way to escape my Chicago apartment. Don’t get me wrong, I love my apartment, but I wish I could travel to a beach locale at some point soon. My next trip is in October, so I have long ways to go.

Today I want to feature three books set in Key West. Key West is the southernmost point in the US. It is a bunch of keys connected by a highway and once upon by a railroad. Key West is located where they get hurricanes as two of the books recommended deals with it  in some sort of way. 

Now let’s get to the book recommendations:


Island Affair by Priscilla Oliveras

What happens when a local firefighter and a social media influencer decide to embark in a fake dating relationship. This book takes you around Key West and all of the sights. There is a strong familial bond. This was a fun adventure.


No Judgments by Meg Cabot

This book is set in the midst of hurricane season. A hurricane hits one of the Keys and the heroine decides to rescue the pups left behind. There are “opposites attract” romance. There is a hurricane scene and there is some steam.  Book 2 in the series comes out this August between a librarian and the town sheriff.


Last Train to Key West by Chanel Cleeton

This is a historical fiction set in the Labor Day 1935 Hurricane. This book dives into what was life like in the Keys during this time period after the Great War and Great Depression. There are a few mysteries as we follow three heroines in their journey and how they experience the hurricane. This book was captivating and I absolutely adored it.
