The Summer Hearts Tour Continues......With Carol Malone and her story, Summer Holiday


Today we are going to focus on the next book in the compilation. 
Check it out!

Summer Holiday:
In the summer of 1905, Lizzy Gordon’s father dismisses her desires to be a doctor, demanding she become a teacher—a profession which does not allow women to marry.
Teacher Brent Pierce is dedicated to expanding young minds, but circumstances are forcing him to take over the family farm.
Before the summer is over Lizzy and Brent will be forced to make hard decisions. Can they find the courage to each stand up for themselves and still be together?

Now about the fabulous lady behind this book!


Carol Malone
Award-winning author Carol Malone has successfully combined her three passions – romance, sports, and writing in her two highly-rated books, Fight Card Romance: Ladies Night, and Ladies Night Christmas sequel. She was the first woman to write a romance for the all-male dominated genre. Carol invites her readers to scramble into a front row seat for a thrill-ride of suspense, sports, and romance. If not hammering out new tales, Carol’s loves reading, sports, and hanging with her author husband on the coast of California.

Lizzy & Brent: being told what we have to do

6)     Did you struggle to tell your author anything?
Brent: Carol didn’t understand my motivation for wanting to be a teacher all that well and why I couldn’t allow Lizzy to give up on her dreams. I figured a man like me didn’t deserve a find lady doctor like I knew Lizzy would become.

8)     What inspired the title of your story?

9)     Do you think that there is a specific message to your story, that you’d like your readers to learn?
Self-sacrifice is one thing, but when carried to the extreme, can create more problems that a caring, loving person wants to deal with. And traumatic incidents from our youth can surface and cause all sorts of problems. It’s best to analyze why we do things and not do them for the wrong reasons. And love in the summer can be the best.
