Good morning and happy Sunday. Not that anyone needs reminding but Christmas is getting closer and closer people. And then that’s it. Goodbye 2018.

I’m almost ready for Christmas but not quite. Aside from my Amazon Prime orders, some of the gifts I ordered online have yet to arrive so I’m trying not to have a heart attack. They are due to be here before the 24th so they need to get here soon.

Also, I’ve been doing this some evenings lately, enjoying a glass of wine with dinner and looking at the tree.

Happy Sunday and happy weekend. I cannot believe we are nearing the end of November and that Thanksgiving is over here in the U.S. I hope you all had a happy Thanksgiving. We had a nice cozy one at home. I cooked this year for us and spent the day in my pajama’s. It was so nice not having to leave the house especially since the temps have been so low lately. I made the turkey and the sides and a pumpkin pie, I cheated with the pumpkin pie and bought frozen crust but it still came out yummy. I took Friday off so it’s been a nice 4 day weekend.

We had the first snowstorm of the season last week and that was a nightmarish commute home from work so I am glad it is over. I hope that’s not indicative of how this winter will be.

Hello everyone. Happy Sunday Happy November. Happy reading.
I am sending my thoughts and prayers to the people in California with the major fires burning there now. It is so scary to see the news.

I went MIA for a little bit on blog land recently, because I was in Puerto Rico on vacation for one week. See the palm trees above? Yep. This past week was my first week back home and I am still kind of on vacation mode. Going to beautiful, sunny Puerto Rico was amazing. It is funny how I got used to the warm sunny temps (high 80’s) and going to the beach in October, meanwhile back home we had cold Fall temps and shorter days. We spent the days by the pool and the beach as well as sightseeing. We also visited some family.

Book Details:
Genre: Paranormal Cozy Mystery
Published by: Ambleside Publishing
Publication Date: September 2018
Number of Pages: 250

Purchase Links: Amazon Goodreads

At a crossroads between a cringe-worthy past (Todd the Toad) and an uncertain future (she’s not exactly homeless, but it’s close), Lucy Swift travels to Oxford to visit her grandmother. With Gran’s undying love to count on and Cardinal Woolsey’s, Gran’s knitting shop, to keep her busy, Lucy can catch her breath and figure out what she’s going to do.

Except it turns out that Gran is the undying. Or at least, the undead. But there’s a death certificate. And a will, leaving the knitting shop to Lucy. And a lot of people going in and out who never use the door—including Gran, who is just as loving as ever, and prone to knitting sweaters at warp speed, late at night. What exactly is going on?

When Lucy discovers that Gran did not die peacefully in her sleep, but was murdered, she has to bring the killer to justice without tipping off the law that there’s no body in the grave. Between a hot 800-year-old vampire and a dishy detective inspector, both of whom always seem to be there for her, Lucy finds her life getting more complicated than a triple cable cardigan. The only one who seems to know what’s going on is her cat … or is it … her familiar?

Good morning everyone, October is in full blast around here and I’ve been enjoying the nice Fall days as much as I can. I have finally accepted the fact that summer is gone for now and cooler weather has arrived. I like all the pretty colors Autumn brings so it has been nice. I took the picture above yesterday while we were out walking.

On the Blog…

Creatures of Want and Ruin by Molly Tanzer arrived recently. It has a strange and interesting premise and this is not an author I had ever heard of before.
