Playlist for Summer of Love!
Happy summer, friends! Many authors listen to music as they write and the authors of Holidays with Jane are no exception. Sometimes we listen to music that we personally like, music that our characters would listen to, or music to set the mood for a scene. Below you’ll find a playlist for each of the stories in our newest HWJ collection – Summer of Love. (Playlist in order of stories in the book.)
