If you’re of my generation, you probably remember when Nat King Cole sang about the “lazy, hazy, crazy days of summer.” When it’s hot and hazy, and the heat and humidity sap your strength, it’s tempting and sometimes necessary to be lazy.

What’s your favorite summer activity? Roadtrips (in an air-conditioned vehicle, of course)? Vacationing in the mountains? Living at the beach? Picnicking at the park?

How about sitting in the shade of a big tree and reading a good book?

If you like to read Christian romance, I have a suggestion for you: Blue Bonnet Bride by Molly Bull, a brand new release from Scrivenings Press.

Dr. Gina  Hollister dreams of building a learning center for children with problems near Hill River, Texas, but she and her partner Nicole are unable to get the financial backing they need. Gina tutors 14-year-old Amanda Bryson, who is dyslexic and has recently lost her mother. When Amanda must travel to Colorado with her father for the summer, Steve Bryson hires Gina to go with them to continue tutoring Amanda, and he promises to supply the funds for building the learning center. Gina is attracted to Steve, but she isn’t sure she can trust him, a wealthy businessman with the reputation of a womanizer, but she agrees to go with certain rules in place. Gina herself is dyslexic and carries with her the wounds of childhood mockery for her learning difficulties and clumsiness. Steve’s confidence, smile, and the doubt he expresses about Gina’s ideas and teaching methods bring Gina’s wounds to the surface. And Steve isn’t a fan of Bible thumpers–Christians like Gina. What about the bluebonnets? You’ll have to read the book.     .
