Blog Tour: Something's Brewing at Joe's by S.J.D. Peterson

S.J.D. Peterson is here today to promote her latest, Something's Brewing at Joe's.

Leave her a comment on your empty nest feels while you're here!

What Do I Do?

I, like Murphy, find myself in a brand new city and state. Luckily, I’m not depending on a new job as he is, but I still have many of the same worries and fears. Where should I live, what should I do, why am I here, should I go back home, the questions go on and on.

I’ve spent ¾ of my life raising children and always wondered what it would be like once they were all on their own. I think I glorified it, especially during those trying times (Like teenage angst years, yeah you know the ones I’m referring to lol) Now, I find myself wondering What Do I Do with all this free time on my hands.

I would love to hear from those of you who are empty nesters. How did you cope with it? Did you travel? Pick up a new hobby? Relax? Did you down size or simply enjoy all the extra space? And the biggest question….How long did the empty feeling last?

Something’s Brewing at Joe’s

The promise of a dream job lures Murphy to Tampa, but he arrives to the rude awakening that the offer is on hold. Now he’s got two choices: slink back to Michigan with his tail between his legs or stay and look for work. Things perk up when he goes into a coffee shop and learns the owner is looking for someone to renovate the apartment above it. He happily takes the job, only later realizing he’s met Joe Sterling, Kaffeinate’s proprietor, before… when they hooked up at a club Murphy’s first night in Tampa.

Murphy and Joe are both proud, passionate, and outspoken. Neither is looking for a relationship, though they can’t deny they go together as well as coffee and doughnuts, in spite of their tempers. But that’s before Joe learns Murphy will be working for the corporation he believes is harming local businesses and the environment—and if Murphy will be supporting it, Joe wants nothing to do with him, dooming any possibility of an unexpected happy ending.
