Two Sisters Times Two, Serial #1 and Mint Chocolate Smoothie

Posted on

How do you combine:

1. some residual St. Patrick’s Day cheer

2. a good use for the Girl Scout cookies you picked up last month that are hanging out in your cupboard

3. a shout-out to long overdue spring a few days early

4. and a celebration of the start of a new novel on Reading and Recipes?

With a Mint Chocolate Smoothie!!!!

This dessert has happy thoughts written all over it and mixed all in it. What’s more, it’s easy, quick, refreshing and satisfying to your sweet tooth and your chocolate craving. 

Top it all off with the first serial to our new novel Two Sisters Times Two. It picks up Brooke and Leah from Two Sisters some thirty-five years later, with Brooke’s youngest daughter Penni getting married with her sister (and Brooke’s older daughter) Jodie serving as Maid of Honor. The wedding, like most weddings, brings out some of the best and the worst of the participants. So take a listen or a read and jump on board for this new serialized novel–Two Sisters Times Two, hot off the presses only at Reading and Recipes!
