Show Notes

Should-heads, you are in for a treat! We are joined by Tessa Bailey, here to talk to us about her upcoming release It Happened One Summer (out July 13). This Schitt's Creek-inspired novel is clever, sweet and scorching hot. We all loved it and it is perfect for poolside or beach reading, preferably with an umbrella drink. You need this book in your life.
