Thursdays at Coconuts | Beth Carter
40 posts | 3 read
As the go-to wedding planner, Suzy can't find her own wedded bliss and has one shocker of a wedding day. It doesn't help that she's still pining for her high school sweetheart, the one who got away. Handling neurotic brides is the best part of Suzy's day until her son brings home a bombshell from Europe. Alexandra, a beautiful marketer with a "touch" of OCD, falls for a bad-boy cop who's married and possibly stalking her. But he sure is sexy. Alex tries to stay at arm's length after she puts her job-and life-on the line for the officer who isn't always a gentleman. Hope hates her name, looks, and frizzy hair. As a high school counselor, she dishes out sage advice to students, yet can't see she's enabling her deadbeat, stuck-in-the-seventies hippie parents. After tragedy strikes, she reexamines their relationship and discovers a secret that almost went to the grave. Friends since high school, the thirty-something women meet every Thursday at Coconuts for their own form of friendapy.

#thursdaysurvey on Friday
Thanks @LokiDokey for the tag! 😘

1. I believe there‘s one in Seattle/Tacoma. But I‘m so new to the area, so I really haven‘t explored it yet.
2. Nope. ☝🏻
3. I‘m an environmental attorney & my preferred focus is wildlife. I love them all! ❤️❤️❤️
4. Yes.
5. Happy Friday everyone! 👋🏻

RvnclawWhovian There‘s one in both! The one in Seattle is Woodland Park. The one in Tacoma is Point Defiance and it also has an aquarium. They‘re both great, I think I prefer Woodland Park if I had to pick one 1mo
wanderinglynn @RvnclawWhovian Thanks! 😀 I‘m slowly exploring, but haven‘t quite gotten over to Seattle or down to Tacoma yet. 1mo
LokiDokey There is also Northwest Trek Wildlife Park in Eatonville. I also prefer Woodland park to Point Defiance. During the winter Woodland park has a holiday light display walk that's pretty cool. 1mo

wanderinglynn @LokiDokey thanks! I‘ll probably move Woodland park higher up on the list. But I‘ll eventually get to all of them. 😉 1mo

1. Pediatric oncology research nurse
2. I worked in the games department at a tiny amusement park. I always got stuck at the game where you throw a big wiffel ball at 3 large heavy cups. (hint: No one ever won that game)
3. My best job was as a peds oncology nurse in the clinic. I eventually needed a break from the stress so I moved to research.
4. Unrelated to nursing, my dream job is to own a dog rescue.

Thursday‘s at Coconuts, is a book about three best friends chatting over drinks, sharing the best pieces of their lives, and indulging in happy hour therapy. The best kind of book! This romance has a surprising amount of intrigue, drama and even a few tears. I love the way the author keeps the readers interest by moving from one woman‘s crisis to the next and I could identify with their... read full review at Zari Reede.com

2. Yes, and I hope we discover that life in my lifetime
3. When I was a teenager, I loved to write, and there was a book about writing that really spoke to me. I wrote that author and was so surprised to get a response.
4. Yes though not as much anymore

1. Love video games, board games, and card games, but haven't played any in a while. Would play board games all the time if they didn't bore my husband. Oh but he is interested in starting to play Magic the Gathering since they were giving away starter packs at ALA.
2.Various Final Fantasy games, Cranium
3. None really, maybe starting Magic though for practice

tonyahoswalt @readherwriteher I had a bad habit of putting off reading for a long time, because I just didn't feel like it, so it would take forever to read a book. When I was a teenager, I plowed through books, and I think that's how I built my speed. This year I decided to get back into that. So far so good! 1y
