The past few months have been cold and rainy in Virginia. Even now, this first week of summer, tropical depression Bonnie is bringing unsettled weather to the area. The few warm days we've seen have promised backyard barbecues, lazy days on the beach, and tropical drinks. In the weeks ahead, as I prepare to release the second novel in the Sweeney Sisters Series, Lowcountry Stranger, I will be celebrating all things summer. Hop on over to my Facebook page and tell me what you are celebrating this June. What are you reading? Eating? Drinking? What outdoor activities are you enjoying? Be sure to use the hashtag #celebratingsummer.
