Steamy + Haunting Read + a #Recipe for #4thofJuly! #FourthofJuly Cape Cod #IndependenceDay

|A dangerous ghost and an ex-boyfriend await Claire in Cape Cod's Gull Harbor...|
To get into the "spirit" of the weekend (haha, see what I did there?), I'm posting both one of my favorite recipes for contributions to cook-outs, and a short excerpt from Gull Harbor - part of a scene where Max and Claire stop fighting their attraction and enjoy a picnic on the beach. Max still can't share his reasons for abandoning her so long ago, but psychic medium Claire is dealing with a very disturbing haunting, and she finds herself leaning on her former boyfriend for support. And Max still feels the need to take care of her, even after all these years - so he's brought lunch for her from the local tavern he owns. This scene sets up their date for the 4th of July - and there are plenty of fireworks on that night - overhead and between the two former lovers!
“A picnic on the beach is perfect. It’s better than dinner and a movie.”
|A little teaser from later that night...|

And, as promised:
Recipe ~ Linguine with Tomatoes and Basil
1 lb Brie cheese, rind removed, torn into small pieces
4 vine-ripe tomatoes, seeded and chopped
1 cup fresh basil, torn into strips
½ cup extra-virgin olive oil
2 large garlic cloves, minced
1 ½ pounds linguine
Salt and pepper to taste
Combine cheese, tomatoes, basil, EVOO, and garlic in a large bowl. Cook pasta according to directions, drain and immediately add to bowl, tossing to allow cheese to begin melting. Add salt and pepper and serve immediately.
Happy Reading and Happy 4th!
