ABOUT THE AUTHOR:



A word from our Author: I started writing short stories—pretty bad ones. And I started taking creative writing courses to round out my degree. So I was in classes full of people just like me—lousy writers. But we were learning!



Then the Lord led me to a local writers' group, Capital Christian Writers, and the contacts and friends I made through CCW enriched my personal life and my writing life more than I can measure. Through CCW and through reading just about every book and magazine ever published by Writer's Digest, I started catching on. Now I'm writing full time and man oh man do I love it.



Before the writing began, I worked for attorneys in Washington, D. C. I worked for the Securities and Exchange Commission. And I was a stockbroker. A horrible stockbroker. How do people do that? Take responsibility for other people's financial futures? Yikes. I'm perfectly happy to take responsibility for the amount of time any one person wants to spend reading my books. If you enjoy the experience, then know that we both enjoyed it together. I love that about books.



In the midst of all that fretting over other people's money and writing about other people's lives, I racked up a few personal experiences myself. Some good, some bad, but all part of God's plan. Now I'm an empty nester living in Northern Virginia. My brilliantly funny son is in college. I have a savvy, gorgeous grown daughter, a charming son-in-law, and an amazing grandson.



ABOUT THE BOOK



Zack Cooper tries his best to raise his children, but he's losing his grip on them in their teen years. They've both had scrapes with the local law.



Tea Shop owner Milly Jewel has the perfect woman in mind to help Zack. Counselor Tina Milano meets weekly at the tea shop with her women's group. Milly encourages Zack and Tina to work together to draw the teens back before they get in even hotter water. Milly never thought things might heat up between Zack and Tina. Or did she?



Tina's connections with the Middleburg police department prove a mixed blessing for Zack and his kids. Both her best friend and old boyfriend are officers on the force.



And when Tina's women's group gets wind of her personal pursuits and clashes, they want to help. The group's meetings at the tea shop take on a slightly different flavor. Tina wonders who, exactly, is counseling whom.



Although heroine Tina Milano and her women's group are mentioned in The Perfect Blend (the first book in this series), Tea for Two is where we meet her and hero Zack Cooper. I knew I would write this book while I wrote the first, so it was fun to plant a passing mention of Zack and Tina while I wrote Steph's story in The Perfect Blend. By the time I was able to write Tina and Zack's story, I was eager to unfold their lives, conflicts, and love. I hope readers will be eager to experience what happens to them!

What I Liked:  The perfect book to sit down a read with a cuppa while enjoying spring flowers and fresh air...:)  This book has some sweet romance, great high-calorie appetizers, and some interesting family-related twists and peeks into the mind of a counselor. I enjoyed the God-interaction as each of the two main characters dealt with their personal past-relationship baggage in order to draw closer to each other.

Well written and an interesting read.

What I Didn't Like:  Got nothing for you - a great book if you're looking for a positive faith-filled light read that'll make you hungry.

When you have chosen your plastic surgeon, schedule a consultation so that you
can get a better idea of what the procedure entails. Article Source:
tested cream is a inexpensive and fast way to remove cellulite.
Finding a way to prevent it in the first place remains an impossibility until science
can tell us where it comes from.

First off, different vaginal infections tend to
have very similar symptoms, so if a woman is experiencing one
for the first time, or is unsure about a proper
course of treatment, she should definitely see her doctor in order
to get a proper diagnosis. The most common kinds of
yeast infection are vaginal yeast infections, thrush and nail
bed infection. Some people try homeopathy, which is usually not harmful.
