Welcome, welcome! It’s my turn on the Ylva-Bywater Blog Hop. Thanks to Blythe Rippon for passing the torch on to me. In case you missed her blog, you can find it HERE. It’s my turn. I’m new and a lil weird, but I don’t apologize for it. *grins*
I am a beer snob. For a long time, I was a purist. The only grapes I wanted was with my fruit salad. Also, when it came to cheese, I was very familiar with Velveeta and her cousins the processed slice and shredded that I put on the burger, eggs, sandwiches, etc.
You may ask…why the hell is she telling us this?
Just bear with me. I’m getting there.
Now, what was I saying? Oh yeah…beer and a semblance of cheese. This was my thing and no one could convince me to try anything new, until this certain woman came along.
Are you with me now?
When you meet a woman you want to impress… when you meet a woman you are drawn to you open yourself to new things, unknown things because you want to be part of her world and vice versa. I was no different.
Almost eleven years later, I can point you toward a good Pinot Grigio, Pinot Gris, and Vouvray. As well as a decent Cabernet, Pinot Noir and sweet red. I am now a fan of brie and camembert.
All because of one woman.
In my book, Blurred Lines, Kelli McCabe, a cop and fellow beer snob, goes through something similar and a damn sight more entertaining. Before, she even knows what’s happening, she’s opening herself to wine, cheese and so much more because Dr. Nora Whitmore is THAT woman.
The good doctor doesn’t come out of this unscathed. In a way, her world is shaken and reformed because when a force of nature is introduced into a controlled environment…BOOM.
Their worlds merge. They learn from each other, and when there’s that much chemistry, it’s gonna leave a lasting mark. Just as it should be.
Kelli can have her beer, her cheese, her wine, and the woman too. Can’t we all? That’s easy right? Uh-huh…
Here’s a little more on Blurred Lines…
Kelli McCabe is a no nonsense detective with a tough exterior. Only a select few know her as a loyal, loving friend. Committed to her family, her friends, and her job, Kelli puts her needs behind everyone else’s.
As a surgeon, Nora Whitmore is used to being in control. The hospital is her life and leaves room for little else. Respected by her colleagues, but misunderstood by the residents, Nora takes what she needs and keeps everyone at arm’s length. In the process, she creates unexpected enemies.
Tragedy brings them together. As chaos grows around them, the lines between them begin to blur. Despite being from different worlds, friendship grows between them, turning quickly to attraction. Will these two strong, independent women find a way to deal with their individual baggage? Or will they be overcome by it?
I will now turn things over to the very capable hands of Marianne K. Martin
