We’re starting to approach the dog days of summer, which means that it’s going to get hotter and hotter. But if you really want to turn up the heat, you should see what’s happening in the Florida swamp in the novel Candor by Pam Bachorz.  In this book, Nia and Oscar are caught in a real scorcher, and if they fail, they’ll be burned up in more ways than one.
