J.T. and Cass’s story turned out to be a lovely end to the trio of Baxter sibling romances. If you’re looking for more info, SEPT. 16TH is RELEASE DAY, but it’s available for pre-order NOW!

This time of year in the southern U.S., weather is a mixed bag. We could get cool and rainy, warm with tornado and severe thunderstorms, or we could skip springlike temps and go straight to summer hot. This year we’ve gotten all of the above. One day it’s cool and rainy, then a severe thunderstorm moves through leaving higher temps and humidity.
Luckily, we got several days of really warm Spring temps and sunshine, so I was able to plant flowers, herbs and tomatoes to my heart’s content. Three days, seven in-ground plants and some 32 pots later, I was able to clear the potting soil and tools away.
Perhaps it was my current WIP that put me in such a gardening mood. In His Small Town Princess (Book 3 of the Sweetwater Springs series), Cass opens a new business. Bing Gardens has three large greenhouses because she does things in a big way. No halfway measures when it comes to love either. Cass jumps into a relationship with a single dad (widower) before she realizes the impact her presence will have on their family dynamic.

Hubby and I are gardening again this year. Our first harvest this year was green beans.
Lots of green beans. ( Those are 12″ tiles for basket size reference.) I processed them Monday for over four hours, but will they ever taste good this winter!
