Hiya, folks! Welcome back to another exciting Sunday full o’ snippets! I’ll be sharing more today from Steeped in Love, so here goes!
Continuing from where we left off….
She topped up his mug as she dropped off the pastry. When he lifted his head to acknowledge the gesture, an entirely different woman caught his eye. Adelaide Mitchell, owner and operator of the one and only Pie-Cycle. He couldn’t help but stare as she entered the cafe, a pixie-haired woman with wide brown eyes, pink lips, and short-shorts that made him wish for the first time in his life that he were a bike seat.
He rarely got to see Addie up close. She was always in such a hurry, selling her freshly-baked hand pies at all the hubs in this town and the neighboring ones. The fillings could be sweet or savory. He wondered if it depended on her mood. Not that he’d know if they were any good. He’d never tried one, being that he was partial to danishes, but a girl like Addie, well…she might tempt a guy to give pie a try.
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’ve had a very exciting week, my friends! My dad came to visit me in Ottawa, and we had a blast. Ate awesome food, drank delicious milkshakes, stayed at a hotel with a giant water slide, AND I BOUGHT A NEW CAR. OMG! I’ve been on the hunt for several months, test-driving a dozen different SUVs at a dozen different dealerships, and finally I was sold on a metalic-grey 2016 Subaru Forester. My baby is being shipped to me from Toronto, so I have to wait a couple weeks to reunite with him (I’m calling him Bubba Gump), but I can’t wait! 😀 Yay! Pics to come! Have a fabulous week, everyone!
