Summer of Love Blog Hop

Hi everyone, welcome to my blog post for the Summer of Love Blog Hop! πŸ™‚ So glad to have you stop by. I’m giving away three copies of my debut paranormal romance IF TOMORROW NEVER COMES

One of my favorite summer destinations is one I unfortunately don’t get to go to often enough – the beach! Is there really anything better then being near the water on a really hot day? Nothing like the feeling of walking barefoot on the hot sand, finding the perfect spot and just relaxing. A good book, a drink or two, a little music and snacks and I’m pretty well a happy camper.

Since I’m nowhere near a really good beach anymore, I try to make the most out of the backyard. I’ve got a good little area underneath one of the big old pine trees, it’s branches are cut a good ten or more feet high so it makes a great canopy. There’s cedar chips on the ground which makes it nice and soft to walk on, and there’s two comfortable chairs underneath, with a table between, perfect to rest a cold pink lemonade on. It’s not the beach, but it’s a nice spot to get a lot of reading done πŸ™‚ Plus I’m surrounded by beautiful flowers and the occasional wild rabbit hopping through trying to steal a strawberry or two or nibble on some flower leaves. πŸ™‚

What’s your favorite summer destination or reading spot? Are you lucky enough to be near a great beach? Go ahead and make me jealous. That could be why a lot of my characters love the beach. I get to live vicariously through them. πŸ™‚

  4. I live in Oklahoma! There’s not a beach, altho there are lots of lakes, ponds, etc. with water front. But we don’t go to the lake. I’m not really an outdoors kinda person — I might sit outside and read if the weather isn’t too hot, but usually my reading spot is a comfy chair or sofa. The last couple of summers have been hot; this summer has been rainy – but I’ll never complain about the rain!
    IF TOMORROW NEVER COMES sounds like an interesting read.

      Hi Donna! Thanks for stopping by the blog πŸ™‚ Love the way the air smells after a good rain. Up here we don’t usually get that hot, although we have had a couple hotter than normal days this year. A good chair is a definite must for reading.

  5. My favorite reading spot during the summer is my air conditioned bedroom. Lol! I am not a fan of the heat. Thanks for the giveaway!!

  8. Sorry, I can’t make you jealous. I don’t live any where near a beach and if I did it would have to be one where it was nice and cool all the time. I don’t like the heat or the sun very much, so my favorite place during the summer would have to be my bed with a good book. Thanks for sharing the hop and the giveaway. evamillien at gmail dot com

  9. I’m with you! Summers are meant to be spent on warm beaches with sand squishing through your toes
