What better way to celebrate winter then with a "Healing Summer"?
Hello Gentle Readers,
We have a special treat for you today. It's the latest book by my dear friend Elizabeth Seckman.
Interestingly enough, when talking with Elizabeth, the subject of our favorite writing music came up. That of course led to the perfect songs of "Summer". Here's the author to tell you more:
Hey Jay. Here is my top ten list of summer songs.I'll be straight with you Jay...these songs may not even have anything
to do with summer, but if I was going on a road trip with my girl
friends (back in the days before I drove a mini van) these songs would
be in the top ten!
10. "Hollaback Girl" by Gwen Stefani
9. "Summer of 69" by Bryan Adams (I was born in the summer of '69, you think Bryan was thinking of me?)
8. "Boys of Summer" by Don Henley (a little sad, but still a good
7. "Fun, Fun, Fun" by The Beach Boys (I drove a T-Bird in High School, so this was my self-appointed anthem!)
6. "Summer Girl" by LFO (This could be the eternal summer anthem!)
5. "All-Star" by Smash Mouth (My boys listened to this in an endless cycle one summer...a car seat quartet!)
"Rebel Yell" by Billy Idol (saw him in concert in Columbia South Carolina in 1988...high school highlight!!!)
3. "King Rocker" by Generation X (Billy Idol's start up group)
2. "Dancin' with Myself" by Billy Idol (did I mention I was a charter member of the Billy Idol fan club?)
1. "Summertime" by Mungo Jerry (This song makes me want to grab a glass of lemonade and swing from a rope swing!)
Hope you enjoyed that little break! And remember to check out "Healing Summer" the second book of the Coulter Men series.
Maybe Love, Not Time, Heals All Wounds
Ditched at the altar…biopsied for cancer…Mollie Hinkle is
having a bona fide bitch of a summer. When life sucks so hard it takes your
breath away, what's a girl to do? Pack a bag, grab a few friends, and leave the
past and the worry in the rear view mirror. What wounds can’t be healed by a
drive across the Heartland, where quarter flips at cross roads determine the
route and the future? All roads lead to Craig, the second son and bad boy of
the haughty Coulter line. Has fate brought her to the miniscule Montana town to
find happily ever after or will it just break her heart?
