Blueberry Surprise … what could be the surprise?

Looking for a good summer read?  Check out Blueberry Surprise by Wanda E. Brunstetter.  A light, summer romance just perfect for those days on the beach or the front porch.  But what is the Blueberry Surprise?

The Blueberry Surprise is a light, moist tea bread made with honey, bananas and fresh blueberries.  You will have to read the book to see how this tea bread ties into the story, but what I can share is the recipe from the book.  Try to use local honey for a real taste treat and fresh blueberries.  Fresh from the farm ingredients can’t be beat for this tasty eats. Serve for breakfast or as an afternoon snack.
