Happy Sunday, my friends! The second last Sunday before my summer break is over. Le sigh. It’s been one for the books, though, quite literally! Speaking of, how about we hop back into Steeped in Love!
Continuing from where we left off….
Well, that was an odd thing to say. What was she looking for? The missing word in a crossword puzzle? The meaning of life? The perfect ratio of honey to lemon in her tea—
“How’s the writing going, Ethan?”
He jumped, startled to find Gwen hovering over him with a knowing smile on her face. “Fine,” he muttered.
Her soft hum proved she’d seen the blank page he failed to minimize fast enough. “Hope your hands don’t cramp up,” she teased, then scurried back behind the counter to cash someone out.
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!
Today, we’re off to our final family reunion of the summer. I spent yesterday making my mom’s famous baked beans and chocolate chunk brownies for the occasion. Before I lost my mom, I wasn’t all that keen on cooking. But now, I find myself experimenting with flavours, trying new recipes, and pulling together ‘miracle’ meals in no time flat, just like Mom used to do. Her foodie spirit is alive and kicking inside of me. 🙂 Wishing you all a wonderful day filled with fun, friends, and family! xo
