BOOK LAUNCH MONDAY | Summer Reading from Midnight Ink Books

Web mistress Lisa here. For this month's Book Launch Monday I thought I'd give you the latest scoop about summer titles coming out from Midnight Ink. Summer's a great time for reading, don't you think? Sit outside with your beverage of choice--I imagine a cool, crisp gin and tonic. Maybe you've got an Adirondack chair under a shady willow or a pool-side lounge chair or a patio draped in wisteria. Happy summer reading! ~Lisa
