What Are You Reading Thursday: Discovering the Story Behind the Coffee Table Read, The Color of Tea by Hannah Tunnicliffe

From philosophy books to lighthearted romance novels, we all have this carefully curated stack of decorative coffee table books that makes us seem more educated and interesting to visiting guests. But when they ask about one of the books, chances are we have no idea what it’s about. So in attempts to maintain our facade, we mutter on about the synopsis we glanced over or make something up based on the title. This works well up until the point our beloved guest decides they are so intrigued by our summary that they want to borrow it. Or worse, they confess that they read it. #busted. In order to prevent this from happening, I decided to dive into one of my own coffee table reads:  The Color of Tea by Hannah Tunnicliffe.

Sexiness Tuesday #6: We’re All Just a Few Feet Away From the Love We’re Meant to Find

No matter where you are in the world, if you’ve lived there long enough, you’ll only be a few paces away from your past and your present–and that’s a scary thought. Especially in a small town, you’re bound to run into the ghosts who haunted the halls along with your high school self. People you don’t necessarily want popping up and exposing your past mistakes while you’re meeting up with your umpteenth date; praying they’ll be the one so you can finally break the vicious cycle of first date disappointments. But between that one ex you briefly dated in your teens that you keep bumping into and that cute regular you keep seeing at the grocer’s but never greet, can you truly find the love of your life?
