Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Pen to Paper where we post about one book that has been hanging out on our wish list (either for a long time, or not so long)
Looking at potential picks for this week was hard, because right now I have a glaring hole in books that I am looking forward to in July. I know that for this meme it can be any book i’m excited about reading, but personally, I want to keep my picks to books that I am going to get my hot little mits on, sooner rather than later…
So my pick for this week’s Waiting on Wednesday is an anthology that is coming out in a couple of weeks. I am looking forward to this anthology, not only because its got one of my favorite authors contributing (yes, I’m looking at you Jamie Farrell), but also a bunch of new to me authors, which always excites me.
Small Town Summer is an anthology featuring stories from Terri Osburn, Heatherly Bell, Jamie Farrell, Liz Flaherty, Regina Kyle, Amy Lamont, Stefanie London, Megan Ryder, Rebecca Thomas. Of these authors, I’ve only read Jamie Farrell and heard of Terri Osburn (and she comes highly rated from many friends who read contemporary romance). Small Town Summer is going to be released on July 14th and I already have it pre-ordered.
From warm sunny days to long sultry nights, spend your summer falling in love in a small town! These nine contemporary romances featuring sassy heroines, sexy heroes, and lots of heartwarming romance make the perfect beach read. Whether your pleasure is sweet small town romance or smolderingly sexy love stories, there’s something in the Small Town Summer box set for everyone!
