I’m back from vacation. We had a lovely week at the beach and came home relaxed. I managed to average 8-9K steps/day – love walking on the beach.

I came down with a cold yesterday and haven’t felt like getting on the treadmill. Does anyone else get sick after flying? For some reason I do.

I’ll start to put the garden to bed this weekend which may give me a few steps. How was your week?

  • second chance summer (audio)Title:  Second Chance Summer
  • Series:  Cedar Ridge #1
  • Author:  Jill Shalvis
  • Genre:  Contemporary Romance
  • Narrator:  Karen White
  • Published:  June 2015 –  Hachette Audio
  • Source:  Publisher

Description: Cedar Ridge, Colorado, is famous for crisp mountain air, clear blue skies, and pine-scented breezes. And it’s the last place Lily Danville wants to be. But she needs a job, and there’s an opening at the hottest resort in her hometown. What has her concerned is the other hot property in Cedar Ridge: Aidan Kincaid-firefighter, rescue worker, and heartbreaker. She never could resist that devastating smile . . .

The Kincaid brothers are as rough and rugged as the Rocky Mountains they call home. Aidan has always done things his own way, by his own rules. And never has he regretted anything more than letting Lily walk out of his life ten years ago. If anyone has ever been in need of rescuing, she has. What she needs more than anything are long hikes, slow dances, and sizzling kisses. But that can only happen if he can get her to give Cedar Ridge-and this bad boy-a second chance . . . (publisher)

My take:  In her new series Jill Shalvis introduces the Kincaid family of siblings. Second Chance Summer focuses on Aidan and his chance at reconnecting with Lily Danville – a girl from his past.

Lily is back in town and working at a local hair salon while waiting for a better job opportunity (preferably out-of-town). She left Cedar Ridge with heartbreak several years ago and wants to keep a low profile for the short time she expects to be in town. Not possible in a small Colorado mountain town. She runs into the one guy she wanted to avoid – Aidan. He has his own issues not the least being that he feels completely responsible for his family (mother and siblings). And now he hopes for a second chance with Lily.

I’ve come to expect humor, drama and, of course, romance in a Jill Shalvis novel and they are present throughout Second Chance Summer culminating in an exciting last chapter and enjoyable epilogue.

As always, Karen White’s narration is perfect for this genre and especially books by Jill Shalvis.

I went to the Wisconsin State Fair last Saturday with my two daughters, their husbands and one grandchild. We had a fun time and I got lots of steps but I was exhausted by the end of the day!

We had gorgeous weather the past week so it was nice to get some outside walks. I took it easy on Friday and we went to a wedding on Saturday – fun but not as many steps as I would have liked. I’m writing this on Thursday and it looks like I might not reach 10K but that’s ok 🙂 Wishing you all a relaxing weekend!

Last week was a good one for walking. I got out for an early walk each morning and then finished up later with a treadmill walk. Really made a difference with the fitbit totals. We have a few social events this weekend so I’m not sure what will happen to steps. Hoping the extras earlier in the week will keep my average up. Have a good week!
