Summer Reads Giveaway Hop



I absolutely LOVE the summer, there is nothing better than sitting on the porch in the backyard sipping on something cold and fruity watching the kids run around and play in the water while the smell of burgers on the grill drifts towards you.  It's a beaufitul thing.  Not only that but being able to live in flip flops, we only get that during the summer months considering flip flops are just not good for walking in the snow. 

So here I am joining the Summer Reads Giveaway Hop hosted by I am a Reader, Not a Writer and Rex Robot Reviews. One lucky will win Second Chance Summer and a Mystery prize (possibly something I picked up at BEA). Good Luck to you all and YAH FOR SUMMER!!!!

Second Chance Summer
By:

Description:
Taylor Edwards’ family might not be the closest-knit—everyone is a little too busy and overscheduled—but for the most part, they get along just fine. Then Taylor’s dad gets devastating news, and her parents decide that the family will spend one last summer all together at their old lake house in the Pocono Mountains.

Crammed into a place much smaller and more rustic than they are used to, they begin to get to know each other again. And Taylor discovers that the people she thought she had left behind haven’t actually gone anywhere. Her former best friend is still around, as is her first boyfriend…and he’s much cuter at seventeen than he was at twelve.

As the summer progresses and the Edwards become more of a family, they’re more aware than ever that they’re battling a ticking clock. Sometimes, though, there is just enough time to get a second chance—with family, with friends, and with love
