Greetings and salutations! It’s Thanksgiving weekend in Canuckland! I’m very thankful for all of you and the support and encouragement you provide each week, not to mention the fabulous reading material! Hey, here’s some more Steeped in Love for you!
Continuing from where we left off. Gwen just informed Ethan that Addie is trying online dating, and even searching the singles ads in the local newspaper, where she found her current date. We’ll take it from there….
“Is that safe?”
Gwen laughed. “We’re not known for harboring criminals in Kendal, unless eating too much pie is a crime, but I’d happily do time for that.”
So this woman, this baker of supposedly scrumptious pies, was looking for love in a newspaper. Could it really be that simple? Ethan pulled his laptop closer and wiggled the cursor to wake it. “He seems to be doing well so far,” he grudgingly admitted.
“Keep me posted,” Gwen said.
He barely heard her over his fingers tapping frantically against the keys. The Girl Who Made Headlines: Chapter One.
Here’s the blurb:
Addie Mitchell is a pie-on-the-fly entrepreneur who’s finally ready to settle down in the big, empty house her late great-aunt Edna left to her. Frustrated with her lack of success in romance, Addie turns to another gift her great-aunt passed on to her—the art of reading tea leaves—to aid her in her search for the ideal mate.
Novelist Ethan Holtz is having a hard time sinking his teeth into his next project, but he finds Addie fascinating. Mainly for her ability to make her dates disappear in fifteen minutes or less. He can’t help but eavesdrop on her dates in the local coffee shop, his writing haven, and soon finds himself taking pointers on what not to do from her failed suitors.
Though her methods seem nothing short of mad, he falls fast and hard for the pixie-haired pie-pusher. She thinks they’re all wrong for each other, but Ethan teams up with the tea leaves to prove they’re so right.
Thanks so much for stopping by and be sure to visit the other Weekend Writing Warriors!
I had the BEST time yesterday celebrating Thanksgiving with Dad’s side of the family! Our festivities included golf, a bocce tournament, Trump mocking, and an incredible dinner of roast pork, homemade apple sauce, all kinds of fall vegetables, cabbage salad, Greek salad, and pumpkin pie with ten pounds of whipped cream on top — my doing, of course. 😀 I’ll be spending today trying to wake up from my food coma. Hope the rest of you have a wonderful Sunday! 🙂
