Poppy Dennison is here talking about her newest release!

In honor of Coconut Cove’s release, I thought I’d stop by with a list of my favorite things about summer. I don’t care if it is the end of August, I’m holding onto Summer for as long as I can!

5- Flip Flops!  Okay, so reality is, I’ll wear flip flops at any time of the year, but there’s nothing more fun that flip-flapping my way around town in my favorites! I have a collection--don’t judge me!--and I can’t wait for it to get warm enough to wear them!

4- Summer Candles! I love having my house smell like the beach, especially when I can’t actually go to the beach! My current favorite is Caribbean Escape from Bath and Body works, followed closely by their Aloha Waikiki! If nothing else, I can make my house smell like an exotic beach location!

3- Arnold Palmers! Okay, for those of you who don’t know what this is, let me explain. You take sweet tea, then you mix it with lemonade. The result is deliciousness in a glass! There’s nothing better on a hot summer day!

2- Garden Vegetables! No matter how much I whine about the work, I absolutely love the results of our garden! Summer means fresh vegetables at our house, everything from tomatoes, to green beans, to corn. Nothing better!

1- Vacation! Every year I get to spend a couple weeks with my oldest nephews when they’re out of school! Last year we went to Universal Studios in Florida. This year, they wanted to hang out at the pool! I’m all for that! I’m just glad they aren’t too cool to spend time with their aunt! LOL

So that’s it for my 5 favorites what are yours?

If you want to have a little more summer, take a peek at my new release from Wilde City Press. Coconut Cove: Life’s A Beach is the first book in my new series with M.J. O’Shea.

Two Contests!

Welcome to Coconut Cove where you’ll always find oiled beach bodies, palm trees, tropical drinks, and plenty of drama!

Coconut Cove is the hottest new sensation to sweep the nation — a gay teen drama filled to the brim with hot stars and even hotter action. It’s catching the public’s attention and winning their hearts. But all the drama, heartache, and life lessons aren’t just for the characters on the screen. The fledgling actors behind the scenes have more than their fair share of love and catastrophes. They may only play teens on TV but when it comes to romance, these twenty-somethings still have lessons to learn.

From the scheming ex determined to cash in on a rising star, to the hunky high school crush resurrected from ancient history—from the nice guy with a naughty past, to the snarky diva with attitude—there’s plenty of scandalous hidden affairs and seriously sexy demons hiding in just about everyone’s closet on Coconut Cove.

You just have to be ready to drink it in. Bottoms up … or should we say off?

A sassy southern lady, Poppy Dennison developed an obsession with things that go bump in the night in her early years after a barn door flew off its hinges and nearly squashed her. Convinced it was a ghost trying to get her attention, she started looking for other strange and mysterious happenings around her. Not satisfied with what she found, Poppy has traveled to Greece, Malaysia and England to find inspiration for the burly bears and silver foxes that melt her butter. Her love of paranormal continues to flourish nearly thirty years later, and she writes steamy love stories about the very things that used to keep her up all night. If her childhood ghost is lucky, maybe one day she’ll give him his own happily ever after.

  1. What I like about summer: sleeping in instead of getting up early to get my son off to school, going to the library & park more often, wearing shorts, t-shirt & yes flip flops.

    1. Oh I should have added sleeping in to my list too! And yes! Flip flops! I need someone else to understand that they are a necessity! LOL

  2. This sounds like it will be such a fun series - can't wait. I took the quiz and got Joey :)
    I love summer - hanging out with my kids is always a highlight and since I live near a beach - we always have fun!

    1. That's awesome Lisa! Oh I wish I could go to the beach more. I didn't make it this summer, but I will make it a mission next year for sure!!

  3. Missed the quiz yesterday cause I was eager to read the blurb. ;) So I took it today & I'm Joey too. Which is so true cause I like to relax with NO drama. Definitely going to get your book. Thx

  4. Thank you Kendra! Joey is one of my favorite characters! :)

  5. Sounds like a fun series! My favorite things about summer are the seasonal produce, like berries, and feeling justified about eating ice cream (it's hot!) ;)
