Here’s the start of a new series by a new author. There are also farms, food, and the luck of the Irish in the books coming out this month. Enjoy!

While June brings sunshine into our lives, and possibly an end to quarantining, it also brings sad news of the loss of one of our authors. The rest of the titles are all new series for your summer reading.
