Lazy Days of Summer

Hi Everyone!

Rose Ross Zediker here.

As the warm months approach, I'm getting in the mood to take a vacation. but that won't happen for me until October so I'm going to do the next best thing. Escape outside with a good book. My favorite place is on the double rocker on my own front porch but only in the late afternoon and evening because it faces the east and the morning sun gets quite warm. Where is your favorite summer place to escape with a good book?

Here's what two reviewers said about my book Through The Eyes of Love, a White Rosebud released by The Wild Rose Press.

“Rose Ross Zediker’s portrayal of small town America sets the tone for an enjoyable inspirational romance that highlights the foibles of its citizens.” Says Gail a reviewer for Night Owl Romance (

“Ms. Rose Ross Zediker has done a good job of identifying her main characters with their distinct personalities and, of course, their inability to communicate with each other. It was amazing how quickly I lost myself in this novel and, even though I am through reading, its story lingers in my mind.” Brenda Talley, The Romance Studio (

Here's the Blurb:

Once the gangly boy next door, Mike Redmond grew into a six-foot, six-inch man. His former occupation as a guitarist in a Christian Rock Band necessitated a certain look including waist-length blond hair, goatee and hoop earrings. Forced into a major career change, Mike gave the situation over to God and follows what the Lord put on his heart. Opening a music store in Clearview and winning Audra's love.

Audra Pope runs a successful insurance agency but shies away from relationships, including one with God. Men want a perfect "magazine ad" woman and, due to her spine deformity, Audra doesn't meet that standard. Although Mike's outward appearance bothers an influential business owner, Audra begins to fall in love with him. Can she learn to see people, including herself, the way God does from the inside out?

Rose, when I was a child I remember spending a lot of time reading on the huge stump of an elm tree (The victim of Dutch elm disease.) These days I can't be picky. If I actually have time to read, who cares about the place? I must admit I sometimes sit on the stairs and read because no one ever seems to find me there. :)

Rose, this sounds like a wonderful read! I'm with Kara, in that I can't be picky where I read. Nowadays I just squeeze in reading time here and there, diving into the pages of a story whenever I have a spare minute or two. The stairs is a good spot, I'll have to try that one. I usually go for the greenhouse. The world thinks I'm working if I'm in the greenhouse so sometimes I head that way with a book tucked beneath my arm!

Super post! :)

My favorite place, summer not included because of the temperatures in Phoenix is the hammock attached to my kids play gym. I can read and the kids can play-until dear daughter wants a push.

I, too, have to grab a read--for pleasure--whenever I can. It's usually on Sundays b/c it seems through the week, I'm reading for work...not that I don't enjoy it, of course.

In the spring & summer, I love sitting outside in the yard while I read.
