Murder in Waiting - post #2

Just over a week now until WEDDING BELL BLUES releases. I'm so excited for you to get back to South Cove and the residents! Especially Jill. It's not quite summer, but a girl can dream, right? Here's another visit from Jill and Murder in Waiting...

By Jill Gardner of MURDER IN WAITING by Lynn Cahoon Hey guys, it's Jill Gardner - owner and sometimes manager of Coffee, Books, and More - South Cove's premier book store and coffee house. Okay, so we're the only bookstore and coffee house in town, too. By whatever calendar count you want (besides the summer solstice - that's June 20th), summer time is here. I loved counting the progression of my life through the school years. Next year it would be middle grade time. Or high school. I loved the idea of choosing my own classes. Then when I registered it was my first taste of having to make sacrifices since I couldn't do everything. Or two classes I truly wanted were held at the same time. Yes, I was that kid. I set myself a reading list before school got out so I would continue to learn during the long hot days. When other kids were reveling in the freedom of doing nothing, I was looking for projects to fill my days and books to keep me lost in other worlds until I could go back to school. I miss those days when my life was my own. I know, you think with running a business I must have a lot of me time. Especially since my aunt likes to handle all the management stuff. And, I do. But I also have to do book reviews for Deek since he took over the website and the email marketing. And remember to do my staff recommend cards for the shelves. Oh, and taste testing Sadie's treats for ordering into the store. It's a hard life, I know. What did you like doing in the summer? Were you a kid who took advantage of the time to relax? Or were you someone who missed the structure of the school day? What about now? Happy Summer peeps! Jill
