Heather Thurmeier is a lover of strawberry margaritas, a hater of spiders and a reality TV junkie. Born and raised in the Canadian prairies, she now lives in New York with her husband and kids where she’s become some kind of odd Canuck-Yankee hybrid. When she's not busy taking care of the kids and pets, Heather’s writing her next romance, which will probably be filled with sassy heroines, sexy heroes that make your heart pound, laugh out loud moments and always a happily ever after.
I love summer—the sunshine, flowers, fresh air… all of it. Except the spiders, of course, but that should go without saying.
I love that the kids are home from school and we get to be lazy every day, sleeping in, watching movies, playing outside, and going to the town pool every afternoon. We send the kids to different weekly camps that run for a few hours each day. This year it’s dance, pottery, and an animal shelter. The rest of the time, we’re unscheduled… Heaven.
We probably spend 5 afternoons out of 7 at the pool, for a couple of hours each time. The kids get to meet up with their friends from school, I get to visit with the other moms, we all have fun playing together in the ice cold, unheated water, and I always take at least a few minutes to lay out and read.
Most of the time, I’m a kindle girl all the way. But in the summer months, I have to have a paper book. I know I could keep my kindle in a waterproof case and it would be just fine, but there something that I absolutely love about reading paperbacks by the pool! So strange, right? And my favorite paperbacks are always adventure books, usually some kind of treasure hunt! My favorites are by Douglas Preston, Lincoln Child, and Clive Cussler. There’s just something about the adventure and action that screams summer to me!
Even though I crave reading adventure books in paperback poolside, that doesn’t mean I’m not also biting my nails while waiting to dive between the kindle pages of hot new romances this summer. I almost always have multiple books on the go in the summer! A few of the ones I’m most looking forward to reading are:
-- Searching for Beautiful by Jennifer Probst – I love her books and can’t wait to read this one!
-- Size Matters by Stephanie Haefner – I’ve read the first (Try Me On For Size) and I can’t wait to read this sequel! Her writing is laugh out loud funny.
-- Tamed and also Tied by Emma Chase – I’ve read the first 2 in this series and haven’t had a chance to read these yet. I’m looking forward to seeing what’s next for this cast of characters. And Emma Chase’s writing is hilarious!
By the looks of my reading list, I better make sure we get lots of pool days and lazy evenings in the gazebo with a strawberry margarita and my kindle! Speaking of margaritas, I’d be doing you a disservice if I didn’t share my favorite margarita recipe with you. It’s really easy. 3 shots strawberry margarita mix, 2 shots lime margarita mix, 3 shots tequila, and a couple scoops of ice. Blend it up and there’s enough to share with a friend! Or just but a straw directly into the pitcher and call it a night. LOL. Yum…
