The Fruits of Summer
I love fruit in the summertime. It's cool and refreshing on a hot day, and doesn't feel heavy in the stomach. Whether the heat is a dry one or a humid one, a juicy piece of fruit always snaps me back.
I opened my frig the other day and discovered I possessed a grocery store of fruit:
Cantaloupe (my son, Andrew, could eat the whole cantaloupe in one setting)
Celery & Carrots. (Okay, these guys aren’t fruit, but the family gobbles them up like fruit)
In humid heat, I prefer a juicy watermelon. For me, the taste is refreshing.
My ultimate favorite is blueberries, especially in dry heat.) According to Wikipedia, blueberries help lower cholesterol. (and they have resveratol) Right now, I'm munching on grapes. I'm a red seedless grapes girl. Again, according to Wikipedia, grapes have resveratol which has been linked to inhibiting cancer and heart disease. See how a glass of wine could be good for you? hehe
I'd love to hear your thoughts. What's your favorite summer fruit and why.
My latest release is "Journey of the Heart," a sweet vintage romance that's set in the heart of California wine country in 1946.

The story was compelling and not boring, which is often a stereotype of sweet romances. I would recommend this short sweetie of a story. Good job, author. - Angel E
"Your case threatened to run away, so I bribed it." Her sweet expression was an arrow through his heart.
"Really? What did you bribe it with?" He wiped the sweat off his brow with a handkerchief, caused from a combination of the summer heat and lifting the heavy cases.
He hooked his thumb toward his chest. "Are you offering me a job, Miss Santori?"
