Virtual Book Tour: Seattle Delight by Charlotte Stout

Seattle Delight
By
Charlotte Stout


BLURB:  
Charly’s life was simple and uncomplicated, just like she wanted it.  Or so she thought!  One chance encounter with a devilishly handsome stranger in her local coffee shop would turn her world, and her heart, upside down.  She would be thrown into a realm of privilege and romance, and more than just a little danger.
How will she handle the dark gorgeous man who has inserted himself into her domain?  When danger threatens those she loves, will she have the strength of heart and spirit to do whatever it takes to save them?  Share Charly’s adventures as she navigates through the quickly changing landscape that has become her life.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~






EXCERPT:
Charly walked into Shuckers at precisely seven o’clock in an emerald green silk dress, her sister found on the sale rack in Nordstrom’s Individualist and gold stiletto heels from her own closet.  Charly had almost choked at the original price of the silk dress but she knew that at one hundred dollars it was a bargain and more in line with what she could afford.
Charly saw her parents and Lisa and made her way over to their table.  She sat down feeling a bit glamorous and sexy – not that she wanted to feel sexy in front of her parents.  Ew!
Seated between her parents Charly looked for the waiter.  A glass of wine was just what she needed to add a little natural glow to her cheeks.
“For heaven’s sake, what are you looking for?” her mother asked, as she sat primly in the high-back armchair.  
“The waiter, I’d like a glass of wine.”  Charly replied.
“Charly honey–we are in one of the finest restaurants in Seattle, please show some decorum and manners, for me.”
“Sorry.  But you each have a drink,” she replied somewhat defensively.
Josie sat forward, “Yes dear, but we got here at seven – you did not.  So, you’ll have to wait for your drink until the waiter comes by.”
“Hey, it was seven by my clock when I parked the car.”
“Then your clock is off – my dear. You really should have all your time pieces synchronized.” Her mother said with a smile and a wink.
Her dad didn’t say anything.  He just listened and grunted periodically, which left everyone wondering whose side he was on.  Then he started sniffing the air around him.  “Do any of you smell that?”

  4. Loved this excerpt today. I'm glad I didn't have parents like Charley's. I'd probably smack them upside the head! I'm definitely going to enjoy reading this book!

  5. Yes, Charly's mother can be a bit intense at times. Thanks for the comment and I do hope you enjoy the book.

  6. While Charly's mother is one of those mothers who seem to be forever correcting and pointing out the flaws in their daughter's behavior, it is clear this is done out of love. The family Charlotte has created is funny, warm, contentious at times and furiously loyal. Makes us want to be part of this clan!

    I have read "Seattle Delight". It's a great read and I highly recommend the book.

  8. Interesting excerpt. Tells us a lot about the family dynamics and leaves us with a question. What did he smell & what was going to happen? Thanks.

    Am enjoying following the tour.
