Summer is the time of beautiful flowers–so what nicer way to think of flowers than in the title of books–right? LOL It’s just for fun, people! When I do these posts I try to use mostly books I’ve read or books on my own TBR.
The Ballroom on Magnolia Street by Sharon Owens
Review from my old blog: Nice, easy read with the sort of characters you’d enjoy having as neighbors. Sharon Owens is one of my favorite contemporary authors when I want something pleasant and fun to read.

My review from my old blog: I’ve finally done it! I made it thru a free kindle romance without laughing or gagging!! Ha!! This author, unlike many others of the genre, can really write! I was in the mood to just ESCAPE and this book provided me with a mini-vacation. I won’t pretend this is high-brow literature, but it was low-brow fun of the best sort. Bernard is every down-trodden woman’s dream. Good triumphs over Evil. What more needs to be said? This novella is a pleasant hour or so of escape! Lavender Vows by Colleen Gleason (Medieval Herb Garden Series)
The Lilac Bus by Maeve Binchy (read on a blogging hiatus so no review)
Lilac Girls by Martha Hall Kelly (DNF)
