Welcome June!

by Judy Ann Davis

There are so many beautiful things about the month of June in the northern states. It heralds the beginning of summer. The weather turns warm and balmy while vegetation sprouts and turns greener and greener. Even the drone of the bees grow louder and more pronounced as the multitude of blossoms appear. And the song of the birds in the bushes and trees are an old welcome melody--and many times a morning alarm clock.

The fresh smell of mowed grass and summer roses in full bloom wafts through our open windows and forces us to pause for a second and just enjoy.

Summer is a reminder that we can slow down a bit. We can take a leisurely stroll or sit by an open camp fire. We can take a break in the sunshine—or in the shade—and read, observe wildlife, listen to the hum of insects, or just meditate.

 For me, June is a month 
 that allows for peace of 
 mind.  My  favorite spot is a swing on our covered patio 
 where I can sit and watch the sun set, or close my 
 eyes and listen to the sounds of summer around me.
 There is something soothing  about the dip and sway of a 
 porch swing.

 Where is your favorite spot on a pleasant June day?

When architect Elise Springer’s father is injured, she immediately leaves San Francisco to care for him. The last person she expects to encounter in her Pennsylvania hometown is her childhood friend Lucas Fisher. Lucas is investigating his brother’s death, and Elise can’t resist lending a hand.

Lucas longs for the close family ties he never had. He’s back in Scranton to set up a classic car restoration business and build a future. The torch he carries for Elise burns brighter than ever, but before he can declare his love, he must obtain the legal rights to adopt his nephew—and prove his brother’s death was no accident.

As they unearth clues pointing to find a murderer and a missing stash of money, Elise faces a dilemma. Is her career on the West Coast the key to her happiness, or is it an animal-cracker-eating four-year-old and his handsome uncle instead?

  1. Lovely post, Judy. I totally agree with you on summer and Key To Love sounds super.

  2. Interesting blurb for Key to Love. Thanks for sharing the post on writing. Sometimes I'm pushing to hard to get a story done (deadlines you know). The minute I take a break even to mop the floor or do laundry, my muse engages and we are off on another adventure.

  3. Best of luck with Key to Love. Fingers have a mind of there own and hit send before I was ready. LOL
