Welcome Dear Friend,

Wow, summer just slithered right in, didn’t it? Maybe not according to the calendar just yet, but the crazy high temperatures attest even in the mountains. I’m not complaining though. This was my first winter living full time in our mountain cabin, so the warmth on my bare legs and arms after months of layers feels absolutely wonderful. And everything is just so…green! The color of life.

When our kids were young and still in school (actually, one of them is still in school! lol), one of the aspects I most enjoyed about summer was the break in routine. No homework. No alarm clocks. No rigid bedtimes. Even though they are grown and no longer live with us, I still feel that carefree attitude sneak in along with the warmer temperatures. What do you enjoy most about summer?

Earlier this year, Her Valentine Vet released as part of a Valentine anthology with some super amazing authors. That collection unbundles in July, so if you haven’t snagged your copy for 99c, do it soon!

Look for Fully Surrendered, the third book in the Merriville Firefighter Heroes series, to release in late August as part of the Autumn Hearts anthology. I’m thrilled and honored to be included in this fall-themed collection with beloved authors Mary Manners, LoRee Peery, Clare Revell, and Jill Weatherholt.
