Hey, y’all! I’m writing this whilst in the great state of Arkansas with two of my bestest girlfriends. It’s basically been a food fest, which is the only way to have a vacation, right? Right. Anywho, I must go and hop on a plane back to Canuckland now, so I shall leave y’all some reading! Ready? Here goes!
Continuing from where we left off….
Addie ordered, then took a seat a couple tables over, her back to him. She pulled a tube of lipstick from her pocket and used an old bicycle side mirror from her bag to apply it, which he found more comical than peculiar. Her short hairstyle emphasized the long, slim column of her neck. She was jumpy, anxious. Her aquamarine bike shoes slapped against the floor, like it pained her to sit still for too long. He found himself growing impatient along with her.
Gwen returned to Addie’s table with a steaming mug. “Here’s your tea,” she said. “Good luck. Hope you find what you’re looking for.”
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!
Well, my adventures in Missouri/Arkansas have sadly come to an end. MOAR Tour, 2016 was a smashing success! I’m taking home wonderful memories, fistfuls of American goodies, and two new fabulous pairs of athletic shoes! Sometimes a girl just needs to be with her besties, and I’m so grateful to have had this time with them. Wishing y’all a brilliant week ahead! 🙂
