  4. I will miss being in China! I’m doing a work study that will end in a week. 🙁 I will definitely miss being here!

  5. This may sound crazy but I’ll miss the summer smells. Since I became sick the senses I use to take for granted are now more sensitive. I look at it as God’s way of telling to “stop & smell the roses”.
    The smells of summer are similar to that of spring but the air just seems to smell sweeter with our gardens (vegetables & flowers) & fresh cut grass.

  6. I’ll miss the extra time with my kids, eating watermelon on a hot day, and reading in the shade of the porch.

    On the other hand, we get fall foliage, football, and reading in my cozy chair.

  7. I’ll miss spending all of the quality time with my children at the beach. Time goes by way to fast 🙁

  8. I’ll miss the summer warmth and the long days. I hate it when it gets dark so early in the winter!

  9. Thanks so much for the chance to win great prizes. New books are one of my favorite things and discovering new authors is always a treat.

  20. The one thing that I love the most about summer and that I’ll miss the most is how the days are longer. I love how it stays so light out late into the night. It’s already starting to get dark sooner, so I’m already missing that.

  21. I will miss the birds chatter waking me up outside my window every day. They are my very own alarm clock!

  22. I’ll miss hanging out with my Momma all day everyday since she goes back to work in September-she’s a teacher.

  23. Since I am now a disabled senior but home with my cutie rescue Maltese, I miss being with all my late departed relatives, 2 hubbies, and the summer vacations to the beach, touring, picnics, etc. Thought I would join even though I can no longer hold a book to read, but use my Kindle in it’s case and stand it on my desk. So hope whoever wins appreciates your wonderful writing. Since Judith McNaught hasn’t pub in years, you are my go to author.

  24. That’s actually a tough question. I love winter. I guess the thing I’ll miss most is sitting by the Arkansas River with my dog for hours watching the barges go by and just watching the people and wildlife. And reading good books on my iPhone.

  25. The evening sun as it lays on the horizon – my favorite time of the summer and of the day.

  26. What I’ll miss most about summer is fishing, with a book taken along to read on the bank while I wait for a bite.

We have blue jays, hummingbirds, and butterflies, too! I will also miss opening my windows for fresh air. Thanks for the generous giveaway and chance!

  54. I will miss the longer daylight hours and the calls from my grandchildren. They live in Arizona and Alabama where as I live in California.

  60. Summer weather aka heat doesn’t hit here until Fall, so I have nothing to miss yet!

  61. I won’t miss TOILING outside in BROILING 100+ temperatures! Moreover, since I retired, I am surprised how one season just slides into the next seamlessly.

Pleeeeeeze pick me! Thank you for this opportunity!

  69. Summer is not my favorite season. I truly love Fall. But, I will miss the extra daylight hours.

  70. As much as I dislike the time change, I’ll miss the longer days. I feel more energetic in daylight hours. There’s more time to get tings done but more especially time to lounge beside the river, fishing pole in hand.

  71. I will miss the long evenings of daylight and warm nights where you can sit out without layers of blankets or a fire.

  72. I’ll miss the longer days. Unfortunately, the days are getting shorter already.

  84. I will miss the how light it is out in the evenings and “summer hours” at work. During the summer our work day ends at 4pm (after August 25th our work days goes back to ending at 5pm). Just leaving work one hour earlier each day makes it feel like I am working a half day! Especially since it is still light out when I get home!

  94. I’ll miss the possibilities of going anywhere with my children, whenever we want. We’ll still be able to do it, just through books for the rest of the year. It’s a lot cheaper. 😉

  95. I love your books I am waiting for the last book Hard – Hearted Highlander to come out. I have all of the other books Julia has written and read them all some twice. Julia I wanna thankyou for all the good book I read before bed and when I curl up in my recliner.

  136. It is winter here in Australia; I am on the Sunshine Coast in Queensland, but we have really had only a few days of actual winter. Most days I have worn t-shirts and shorts! It does not bode well for summer this year – I have a feeling that it is going to be long and hot. The heat isn’t so bad, but the humidity nearly kills me! Just about the only good thing is the daylight hours will be longer.

  137. I will miss hanging out at friend’s pool (because the temps here are ridiculous) with a great book, including yours Julia and just relaxing and letting my mind relax and smile! Thanks for making your readers happy and wanting more!

  138. I will miss my beautiful garden. I love setting on the porch with coffee and a book.

  139. What will I miss most about summer? The longer daylight hours. Who a I kidding? I’ll be delighted for it to be dark when I go to bed (as I am an early to bed person). I think it’ll be reading on the back porch in the sun. Love the feel of the sun on my skin as I read.

  140. I was looking for a new author and came across Julia London books and decided to give her a try. Boy am I glad I did. Love her books.

  142. I’ll miss the warm weather and sitting outside in a comfy chair reading a book and relaxing

  143. What I’ll miss most about summer are my early morning walks. I walk three times a week. I get out early (well, early for me) before it gets too hot and walk about 3 – 4 miles each day. Once the cooler weather sets it, I’ll have to walk later in the day when the day warms up. RAD (rheumatoid arthritis disease) doesn’t like to colder weather. Sweating I don’t mind !

  144. I look forward to the availability of “Devil In A Tartan” preorder version for Kindle!!!

    If I won, I’d like a signed copy of “Wild, Wicked Scot”. Actually, it would be nice to have a real wild, wicked Scot — but guess I’ll have to settle for the book…..

    Thanks for your offer!

  146. I love that duffel bag!!! Especially stuffed with books!! Nothing could be better!!

  147. I LOVE that bag! And the books…swoon…Julia I can’t decide which I love more – your contemporaries or your historicals – so I’ll just keep reading them ALL.


  148. Vacation. Summertime is usually when we go abroad. This year, we went to Scotland and Ireland and had a great time.

    Thanks for the chance!

  149. Long summer nights. My fav thing about summer is that it takes a REALLY long time to get dark. It’s nearly 11pm-11:30pm before fireworks show on 4th of July. Makes for the perfect bonfire nights

  150. I suppose the only thing I’ll really miss are the longer days of sunshine. It’s been a hot, fire-prone summer. The last couple weeks the air quality has been so bad due to all the wildfires in the area. I’m ready for fall. 🙂

  151. To be honest I don’t think I will miss the summer at all., I’m not a hot weather person. But if I had to pick one thing it would have to be the grain trucks that go by my window.

  152. I will miss the fresh home-grown vegetables that I get at my wonderful Farmer’s Market,or from generous friends! I also miss the sun being out late, hate driving in the dark.

  153. Not having to work on Sundays. The library I work at is open on Sundays’ during the school year. Having a whole weekend off is great!

  154. I will miss the early sunrises and late sunsets! I like the days long, I feel more motivated to get more done!

  155. I will miss the slowness of summer most. With two children in school, I am always rushing around. And with all the activities and functions they have, weekends and breaks are spent preparing for the next thing on a very long list.

  156. The thing I will miss most about summer is being able to spend uninterrupted time with my grandkids!

  157. You know, Julia, it’s hard for me to miss summer because Fall is my most favorite time of year. By August, I’m ready to say goodbye to summer!

    Your August giveaway is perfect timing. Once the cooler weather comes, reading on the deck or front porch is a heaven- sent joy!

    • Congratulations Mary!
      Your comment was chosen via random. org and you’ve won the prize pack!

      You will receive an email from my assistant so we can get your prizes out to you.

  159. I’ll miss sunny, Sunday afternoons sitting on my deck…drinking wine and reading a Julia London romance.

  162. I’ll miss siting on my porch overlooking the lake and reeading all my Julia London books

  163. I believe I’ll miss the lazy days. I only have one or two things to do and then I’m done. I’ll also miss going to the beach; I don’t think you ever get enough of the beach.

  164. The lighter evenings, I would say sunny weather but living in the U.K. we often don’t see many really hot days!

  165. Being able to spend time in the park reading under a tree (Central Park ) and feeling as if I’m thousands of miles away.

  166. Of course I will miss being warm and seeing lots of color since we have winter here 2/3’s of the year. Just about.

  167. Reading good books on my screened-in porch with my two cats for company; fav part of summer!!

  168. I would love to win that! Unfortunately I’m in Canada, but I would be happy with the amazon gift card too! 😊

  169. Free time to relax and read. Summer is my busiest season. As a costume hobbyist, summer marks a LOT of conventions. Fun but exhausting, especially when you work them. Not complaining, but I do miss just relaxing with a good book.

  170. I love sitting on the deck with a good book and a nice summer breeze blowing. I’ll miss looking out over the green pasture under a sunny blue sky and just thinking “ahhh.,.this feels so good.”

  171. I’ll will miss having the summer off! I go back to work in 3 weeks as a teaching assistant in a special education classroom.

    • Almost forgot. I will miss the beautiful sunshine, all the flowers and laying in a hammock reading. Winters here are so gray, bleak and depressing. Also the family barbecues with family.
      Carol L

  174. I love the highlands. My greatest wish is to go there one day. In meantime I just read about them.

  175. I will being able to spend time with my grandchildren whenever I want. It’s so much easier to spend one on one time with them during the summer. There are seven wonderful ones.

  176. Would love to win this beautiful bag with any books that you can spare to go in it.

  177. I’ll miss my kids theatre program at the community theatre! 🙂 I directed “Dorothy in Wonderland” with the 8-13 year old crowd this year and my husband is currently directing “Dracula: the Musical?” with the 13-19 year olds. I love our summer theatre!

  178. What I will miss when summer I over is going camping and hiking. Although I do like doing that in the fall also.

  179. What GREAT books to be given away!!!! I think what I will miss most is the longer days and the opportunity to read in my rocking chair on my back patio. Colder weather will be moving in way too soon. Thanks for the chance!!

  180. Lazy days by the pool. I’m not a fan of the heat, but I do love reading by the pool!

  181. I’ve already missed most most of the summer because of being in the hospital for ten weeks so I’m going to try to enjoy what’s left of it the very best I can. I’m walking with a cane now so I am so not looking forward to winter’s slippery surfaces. Enjoy what you have now is my new motto.

  182. My youngest being at home..he has now gone back to school and, boy oh boy, do I feel the loneliness!

  183. I will miss the longer days and the Birds chirping at
    Swimming in the pool and family bbq’s . Warm evenings on the porch.
    And going Camping , doing some fishing ..

  184. Summer is my favorite season of the year. What I will miss the most of the summer are: sunny days, going to the beach and share with friends and family.

  185. What I will miss most about summer is the later sunsets, I love being able to sit outside on the porch reading after dinner. It feels like it is still early even when it is 8 PM because the sun is still out.

  186. Reading in my sky chair on the balcony surrounded by lush flowers and my tribe of black cats.

  187. I’ll miss sitting on the porch for dinner with the birds at the feeder just beyond the railing.

  188. What will I miss most about this summer in particular? All the bloody rain we’ve had!! We were already over the norms when July started, and that put us way over the norm for the year! I was starting to look for an ark, at one point!!

    • Actually, I won’t miss all that rain at all – I just didn’t proofread my comment before hitting send!

  189. Love all your books and looking forward to the 4th edition of Highland Grooms series.

  190. I’ll miss the times my daughter and I spent together getting ready for her wedding in September.

  191. I’ll miss having both of my kids home. Our son starts college, across the country, at the end of August. The house is going to be so quiet!

  192. I live in Austin Texas we are now facing another week of temperatures over 100 degrees. So, this summer, I will not miss staying in the house in order not to melt into a grease spot. I will not miss needing to water my outdoor plants often because otherwise they will become brown and crunchy. I will not miss nights when the temperatures remain in the 90’s until 10 PM. I normally love the heat of summer, but this has been ridiculous.

  193. Oh, I don’t know… I’m more of a winter person. I read some great books this summer, though, so I’ll miss that feeling of discovering them for the first time.

  194. I will miss having the summer off, relaxing, reading, and spending time with my kids. Back to work for me.

  195. Looking forward to reading Suddenly Dating and Suddenly In Love – just got them! Thanks for the contest opportunity.

  196. I cannot wait to read more Mackenzies! And this pile of books looks awesome. I see several I’ve read and even more that are in my virtual TBR pile. Thanks!

  197. I’m going to miss the brilliant colors of all the blooms….both flowers and vegetables! Always do! 🙁 I’ll be missing the robins, too, as they decamp for warmer climes…:(

  198. I’ll miss most having Saturdays free. During July and August my workplace is closed every weekend, but after Labor Day Saturday hour resume, some of which I will have to work.

  199. I will miss the warm weather. We have been having ‘staycations’ this summer, and I will miss that.

  200. I will miss the additional time in my morning routine, which is 45 minutes. I will make up for it on the weekends with my book reading at the beach! Happy Summer! 🙂

  201. Julia, Suddenly Engaged was a great book and I very much enjoyed reading it. Also, I am anxiously awaiting the new Highland Groom book. Keep up the good work!!!! You’re the best. Amelia

  202. We had a heat wave here in St Louis. Temps hit 108 with much higher “feels like” temp. I will not miss the heat. I am looking forward to Fall!

  203. Miss this summer? I don’t think that 😅… well this month is terribly busy with full work, less time to sleep and less time for myself (I can’t read so much or do whatever thing that I’d do).
    But if I think in July I can say that is one of my favorite months. It’s my birthday, the festival on my town and I the summer is beginning so is not so bad (the summer where I live is a crazy).

    Have a good summer!
