{Book & A Cuppa #3} Wednesday’s Book & Tea

It’s Wednesday! Another day to share with you what I’m reading and what’s in my teacup! 

20141105_094644Last week it was gloomy and snowing and this week the sun is shining through the windows! Canada is a strange place sometimes, but I love it. There’s a glorious crispness to the air! The babe is asleep, the dishwasher is softly running in the kitche, my teacup is full, my book is new … it’s the perfect morning!

In my cup today is a special tea, Chocolate Pumpkin Chai:

This tea is a special tea because it was a limited release from Steeped Tea, in celebration of their 8th anniversary. Naturally, I snatch up anything pumpkin, so I ordered a few (*cough*8*cough*) bags of it to enjoy.

It’s super yummy! The perfect blend of pumpkin, chocolate, and chai … not too sweet, not too spicy. Just right. Plus, it smells amazing!

Now, onto today’s book!

Last week it was all about the scary books, but this week I find myself wanting to get lost in all things CANADA! I know, it’s November, not July, but I was updating my list of Canadian books I own (listed by province, so I can be sure I’m tasting ALL of Canada’s glory) and I just felt compelled to read more books from it. Not only that, but I’ve been searching for more wonderful authors from across the country to add to my bookshelf.

Today’s book is a little bit different for me since I actually know the author! I’ve owned Marie’s books for quite some time, but hadn’t gotten around to reading them and finally decided to jump in today with her book, The Game Changer.

Here’s the synopsis:

Melody Cartwright has never had a problem with change, but for the first time in her life the changes are beyond her control—she suddenly has a niece she never knew, but has to prove herself to; her best friend is making huge life changes of her own; and she has to deal with her ex and his crazy new girlfriend who has stalker tendencies.

When Melody meets confident, sexy Julian, she’s not interested in a relationship. He tells her it’s possible for a man and a woman to just be friends, and despite his ultra-charming ways there’s something about him that makes Melody believe he could be right.

During a time of change and turmoil, it doesn’t take long for Julian to become everything Melody never knew she needed in her life. But is it possible for them to remain ‘just friends’ or will Melody be a game changer for Julian the playboy?

I haven’t gotten too far in, just 3%, but based on what I’ve read so far AND the snippets I caught from the synopsis (since I like to go in blind when starting books), it looks like it’s just my kind of book — the perfect read after all of last week’s horror! I already love Melody’s character and I love how the story is already playing through my head like a romantic comedy. I can’t wait to read more!

  1. It’s always a good time to read Canadian books! I need to get into more of them someday. I love your mug too, I saw a bunch of different ones last night and I want to get one someday.
    I haven’t read this book but it sounds interesting and I can’t wait to see what you think of it 🙂

    • It’s so cute! I keep getting this smile on my face as I read it. 🙂 It’s great because she’s Canadian and I’ve been friends with her through blogging … I can’t wait to read more of her stuff!
