Summer! I love it. To me, the hotter the better. With the heatwave in New York City along with record breaking temperatures, I have been spending time at the beach, enjoying the weather while working on my book. Call me crazy, but I drag out my beach bag, towels, chair and umbrella and pick my spot on the beach.

With the summer in full bloom in my neighborhood of Staten Island, New York, I will be giving away an electronic copy of my new novel The Boardwalk which is a nice summer read. I can see that boardwalk from where I sit on the beach. {Hint}

One of my favorite summer beach treats in my cooler are an iced coffee with vanilla caramel creamer and sliced flatbread with hummus. A cool and refreshing snack on a hot summer day.

To be eligible for the giveaway, you need to answer the following question.
Please make sure you leave you email address so I can contact you if you are a winner.

What is your favorite summer beach drink and lunch/snack?

The Boardwalk:

After an accident at work, Brooklyn DeMelli walks every day down at the boardwalk as a way to keep active and have a semi normal social life. She meets up with the regular morning walkers, while enjoying the beauty of the beach and the scent of the ocean. To keep busy she started her own company, making beaded jewelry for parties and flea markets.

Mario Morales is the hippy that plays acoustic guitar every morning at different ends of the boardwalk. The music captivates Brooklyn. Following the muse, she meets Mario who turns out to be a narcotics detective working undercover on a huge investigation. When Mario finds out Brooklyn is inadvertently involved in a drug trafficking ring, it leads to a series of events, which puts Brooklyn’s life in jeopardy, while forming a romantic bond between them.

My debut novel Roses is also available from Secret Cravings Publishing.

The Boardwalk and Roses can be purchased at: Secret Cravings Publishing, Barnes and Nobles and Amazon.

Thank you for stopping by and Good Luck!
