3 Sweet Summer Reads

While the official start of summer is Monday, June 20, there are many ways to now start celebrating!

This Full Rose Moon of the Summer Solstice conjures up plans for the beach, picnics, barbeques, vakays, friends, family, backyards…and ice cream!

What’s you favorite ice cream flavor? Mine is peppermint which is only available at the holidays and the reason my freezer is full of several gallons to last until now.

So after you’ve finished your ice cream, here are three sweet summer reads sure to delight your reading taste buds– each one with its own special flavor. 

They’re all available next week. In the meantime, you’re invited to the Facebook book launch parties! Just RSVP and click on the links below:
