Did you know that every day ten children / youth in the UK are told they have cancer? As someone who has had cancer affect her family, I know not only how devastating this can be, but how disruptive it can be to everyday life as well. Luckily, in our situation the cancer center was close by, and rarely did anyone have to take time off of work. But things are different when your child isn’t well. And this is where CLIC Sargent steps in to help by being there for families during some of their most trying times. To quote them, “We provide clinical, practical and emotional support to help them cope with cancer and get the most out of life.” And the best part is that for the next week and a half (until March 9th) we can support them in a fun way by ‘getting in character.’

Love and Rumors (Summer Sisters Book 1): A Muskoka Beach Reads Contemporary Romance
One photographer who needs money—fast. One movie star with an offer as tempting as his bad boy smile.
Hailey Summer, a photographer who has remortgaged her entire life in order to follow her dreams, needs more time. As the eldest of four girls, her self-appointed job has always been to solve everyone’s problems—including holding onto the family’s historic cottage that’s precious to all of them. But with the cottage about to be seized for back taxes, Hailey’s going to have to confront more than just the family members she’s kept in the dark.
When Finian Alexander closes his eyes he sees is his family’s destitute past and the unfulfilled promises he’s made to others. Only a fraction away from making the A-list food chain and fulfilling his promises, Finian needs help from the paparazzi to push his next ‘bad boy of Hollywood’ escapade into the limelight. Problem is he’s in the Canadian Muskokas and the only photographer he’d consider partnering with slaps him every time he deserves it—which is increasingly often as he becomes more desperate.
Will Hailey and Finian give in to the easy way out of their problems, or will discover how alike they truly are when they hit the tabloids—together?
This is the first book in the Summer Sisters beach read contemporary romance series and it will be released in July 2014.
