Hello again. Long time no blog!
Despite 'all', I hope your summer is ticking along nicely...
We’re having the usual July weather here in Scotland -- plenty of rain. The jokes run something like this...
I love summer in Scotland. This year it was on a Monday.
But, mustn’t grumble, until the end of June, we had lots of lovely sunshine. And it’s the school holidays -- although this year most children have been home since April. Much as they are all little darlings, it can’t have been easy for many mums and dads.
Not a mum myself, I have four step-grandchildren between the ages of one and six. Judging from telephone reports and Facebook comments, homeschooling has been fun and frustrating in equal (or unequal!) measure.
Observing from the safe sidelines, hubby and I are not sure who has been educating who. The other day, out of nowhere, our four-year-old granddaughter announced, in a Shakespearean tone, ‘Tonight, I will feast.’ It tickled me.
Anyway, I digress, let’s get on with this month’s goodies.
Over the Sea to Die, third in my Izzie Firecracker series, is free this weekend. It’s a romantic comedy sprinkled with plenty of tongue-in-cheek suspense. Oh, and with a touch of the paranormal. It begins in London then moves to the fictional Scottish Isle of Scree and is face-paced and fun.
I lived on The Isle of Skye for ten years so there are definitely a few parallels.
Or you might prefer Second Chances and Zany Romances -- the Izzie Firecracker four-book series in one bargain volume. It usually retails for £4.99 or your country’s equivalent. But for a few days, I’ve reduced it to 99p via a countdown deal.
The rain just stopped, and the sun has popped its lovely head out of the clouds. Time to grab a cuppa and my Kindle and retire to the sun lounger for a wee while. Bliss.
I won't leave it so long between blog posts next time.
Stay happy and healthy.
