Jeff and I kick off the show by looking back at some of their favorite summertime vacation memories.

The Coastal Magic Reading Challenge is discussed.

I’m so happy!!! We celebrate the news that Pose will get a second season on FX! We also discuss the new series from Brian Sloan called West 40s as well as season 3 of the Starz series Outlander. The Amazon original A Very English Scandal is also reviewed.

I review The Garden, the second of Rosalind Abel’s Lavender Shores series (it’s sooo god). Jeff reviews Geoffrey Knight’s The Temple of Time and Rachael Herron’s Fast Draft Your Memoir: Write Your Life Story in 45 Hours.

Lisa from The Novel Approach drops by to recommend two series from Gregory Ashe–Hazard and Somerset and HallowFolk–as well as The Heretic Doms Club series by Marie Sexton.
