Blog Tour: Insipid by Christine Brae

Banal. Lifeless and Colorless. These are the words that describe my life. I’ve made the right choices, done all the right things. I’m strong, intelligent and highly successful.
I’ve lived scrupulously, loved greatly, and shared my blessings equitably.
But life hasn’t been fair with me.
Now I’m drowning in the middle of the ocean, desperately searching for the shore, surrendering to the fact that I will never be happy.
Then he came along.
Life is unpredictable. You can play it safe and resist change for fear of the unknown. Or you can close your eyes and take the leap with the knowledge that your life will change forever.
Which one will I choose?
My name is Jade Richmond and this is my story.

“Psst!” she whispers entirely too loudly for my taste. “Where’s my friend and what did you do to her? The woman next to me is wearing leather pants and her nails are painted red.”
“Ugh. Too much? It's too much, isn't it?”
“Yes. Too much for the men in this office. You look hot! I mean caliente!”
“Shhh!” I slap her arm playfully as other people file into the room. 
“Hot guy alert!” Carissa from Finance says as she points to the men in the room across from my office. “Jade, you’re so lucky. Everyone on this floor is swooning over those guys. Especially the dark-haired one.”
“How old do you think he is, 30?” Mandy from the same department chimes in.
“Someone looked him up on LinkedIn. Very accomplished. He’s single too,” Tori from Operations declares with authority.
“How do you know that?” I ask, finding myself secretly miffed and defensive.
“Okay, okay. Settle down,” I say, biting my tongue from telling them to stay away from Lucas. “Sorry about that digression, folks. Whose meeting is this?” I inquire testily, eager to change the subject. Thank goodness that was enough to deflect everyone from that bizarre conversation.

Christine Brae is a full time career woman who thought she could write a book about her life and then run away as far as possible from it. She never imagined that her words would touch the hearts of so many women with the same story to tell. Insipid, her third book, is due to be released in June of 2014.
When not listening to the voices in her head or spending late nights at the office, Christine can be seen shopping for shoes and purses, running a half marathon or spending time with her husband and three children in Chicago.
