That is hot! This was the temperature reading on my daughter’s car as I drove it home from the airport. Her flight home from a business meeting was canceled a whole day ahead of time because of approaching bad weather. She rebooked her flight to arrive at a different airport than the one she flew out of, so I had to retrieve her car from the original airport.
Weather can affect our lives in many ways. I like to use weather in my books to affect the lives of the characters. Sometimes I use weather to reflect a character’s mood. Sunny and happy. Stormy and sad. Rain that forces a hero and heroine to share an umbrella. I have written about a tornado, hurricane and blizzard that have changed the way characters view their world and the people around them.
There are no natural disasters in the first book of my Village of Hope series, SECOND CHANCE REUNION, but there is one in book #3 that doesn’t have a title or release date yet. The second book in the series, NURSING THE SOLDIER’S HEART, also has a natural disaster that sends the hero’s life in a completely different direction. That book will be available on July 21 at many book retailers. I will be giving away a copy of book #1 of the series to one commenter. I will announce the winner tomorrow.
