Prolific Oklahoma fiction writer (we have to share her with Texas now), Lisa Wingate has a new one out this summer, called appropriately, The Summer Kitchen. Lisa writes what I would call gentle reads, and her writing can be shared with your grandmother without any reservations. This one is part of the “Blue Sky Hill Series”, but she has several series going so if you like this one you will have more to choose from.
Take a peak at Lisa Wingate’s YouTube offerings, http://www.youtube.com/lisawingate for interviews and book trailers.
If you enjoy fiction, void of vampires, sex, and violence, then I have another Oklahoma author for you. Rene Gutteridge. And just out, a new book with co-author, Cheryl McKay, titled Never the Bride. Rene likes to explore different genres, and please check out her other books, Occupational Hazards series and the Boo series. Both authors are like a long sip of sweet tea, have some fun reading them this hot summer.
