Happy Teaser Tuesday! :-) Today we're heading back to Whistle Stop for the third book in the series, A MOMENT ON THE LIPS. FYI, each book in the series can be read as a standalone and has its own HEA. ;-)
A MOMENT ON THE LIPS - Pt 1
Mm… Piper Noble’s tongue tingled with the anticipation of savoring a sweet treat.
“Tell me you aren’t going to eat that.” The all-too familiar voice carried with it disgust.
How could anyone find a cupcake offensive?
Piper frowned as her gaze moved from the freshly decorated cupcake in her hand to her mother, who’d just stepped inside Poppin’ Fresh Bakery. Lines of disapproval creased her mother’s perfectly made-up face.
A frustrated sigh slipped passed Piper’s lips as she lowered the treat. “Good morning, Mother.”
“That’s not the way to have a good morning, with all of those calories. I thought I taught you better.”
When would her mother give up trying to control her life? After all, she’d started this bakery all on her own. She’d have thought that, instead of nitpicking, her mother would be proud of her accomplishments. She vowed to never ever meddle in someone’s life the way her mother did in hers.
Deciding not to argue and ruin the beautiful day, Piper took a different approach. “It’s a new recipe. Mocha chocolate cherry.” Piper waved the culinary decadence in front of her mother, hoping to tempt her into having a bite. “Give it a try it. I promise it’s not deadly.”
Instead of cracking even the tiniest smile, her mother pursed her lips, and her pencil-perfect brows knit together. “Honestly, Piper, you aren’t a young girl anymore. When will you ever show some restraint and act your age?”
A sharp retort teetered on the tip of Piper’s tongue. With difficulty, she choked it down. She refused to argue with her mother in her place of business—not that it’d do her any good.
