Love and Other Hot Beverages
Blogtour , Bookteaser / July 3, 2017

I’m Laurie Loft, author of Love and Other Hot Beverages. Welcome to my blog tour, and thanks for being here! I’m excited to give out super cool prizes to two people who make thoughtful comments to any of my blog posts: one French press (an item which features prominently in my novel), and a $15.00 Starbucks gift card. Either way, you’ll enjoy plenty of hot beverages! There’ll be seven posts in which I’ll discuss my book as well as unrelated items. Comment, and we can get to know each other a little better.

I can’t remember ever reading anything by this author, but I must say I really liked this story. Of course I read part 2 before part 1, but that doesn’t really matter.
