Tea anyone?

Terri Reed here.  Most of my cohorts on this blog are at the ACFW's conference this weekend.  I so wish I was too but September is always busy with the beginning of school and all that entails.  So, I'm home enjoying a beautiful day in the Pacific Northwest.  Mild temps, sunny, not a cloud in the sky.  A perfect Saturday.

Yesterday was a different story, it rained!  I was praising God for the raining.  We need it.  Though personally, I love the rain.

Rainy weather is writing weather!  I love to listen to the pitter patter of rain hitting the window as I type away at my keyboard.

 Rainy weather is also tea weather.  I love tea.  Black, green, herbal, fruity, vanilla, Earl Grey, Irish or English Breakfast.  Teas of all types.  A few weeks ago I was in England and had tea at Highclere Castle.

English Breakfast with a flapjack, an oat cake with golden honey.   It was tasty.  And nothing like the flapjacks we have here in the US.
Are you a tea toteler?  What is your favorite tea?  I'm always looking for new flavors to try.

In just over a week my new book releases!  Didn't the art department do a fabulous job!  That's Chicago in the background.  I was so excited when I saw this because it matched my vision for the cover so closely.

Do No Harm

As a trauma surgeon, Dr. Brenda Storm saves lives every day. But someone wants her dead.  It starts with the anonymous delivery of poisoned cupcakes.  Now the hospital has hired a bodyguard to protect her 24/7.  At first, Brenda doesn’t think too-handsome Kyle Martin is the right man for the job.  Then she discovers his harrowing background—and that Kyle will do anything to keep her safe.  With every attempt on her life, she’s more drawn to the strong and silent man who risks his life for hers.  But their growing feelings could put them both in harm’s way.


  1. Hi Terri! I'm a tea drinker. I love the Honey Ginseng Green Tea by The Republic of Tea and Mango Apricot White tea from Tupperware.
    The next book looks great! Congrats!

  2. Ohhh, never heard of the mango apricot one. From Tupperware?! Where do you buy that?

  3. I'm quite fond of tea... anything by Lupicia is awesome.

  4. Hi Terri,

    The beginning of school keeps me away from ACFW too. :( But Cara just said that next year it begins on Friday instead of Thursday, so maybe.

    I love tea on rainy days! Well, anytime, but especially on rainy days with a scone. The market near me sells a delicious cranberry walnut scone. A good book just makes it perfect.

    I love just about any tea, but the current one is Cinnamon.

  5. Tea with wild honey and lemon. The folks in Switzerland laughed at me and another woman from North Carolina. We both were nursing colds and wanted that lemon NOT milk with our black tea.

    Tea is soothing to the throat and the soul.

    Peace, Julie

  6. I'm another "The beginning of school keeps me away." I've gone a couple of times when it's in Denver. I wish they'd do it in the West.

    I used to get up in the middle of the night and have tea with my mom. She had insomnia often.
