Six top books with a Cincinnati-area connection

At Cincinnati Magazine Justin Williams tagged six great books with local or regional connection to Cincinnati. Two titles on the list:
The Inevitable Collision of Birdie & Bash by Candace Ganger

The tragic, hilarious, complicated teenage love story of two southwest Ohio kids who meet briefly at a party and are brought back together by fate, loss, and the local roller skating rink. It’s like a Midwestern Billy Joel song on wheels.
My Book, The Movie: The Inevitable Collision of Birdie & Bash.

The Page 69 Test: The Inevitable Collision of Birdie & Bash.
Beach, Breeze, Bloodshed by John Keyse-Walker

If the title isn’t enticing enough—it’s the sequel to Sun, Sand, Murder, btw—Ohio resident Keyse-Walker sends Constable Teddy Creque back to the British Virgin Islands to investigate a deadly shark attack that is, ahem, fishier than it initially appears.
My Book, The Movie: Beach, Breeze, Bloodshed.

Read about another entry on the list.
