This Book Could Be Dangerous To Your Sleep!

This book sneaked up on me...seriously...as I mentioned yesterday...it's slow yet steady...has some sexy bits...has some freaky bits...but is such a good story. I woke up at 3:30 this morning and rather than just turning over and going back to sleep I reached for my Kindle...and read until 5:30 and finished it...again...it is just a good story. It takes place in Maine...one of the characters owns a bookstore...I love that real mysteries were mentioned as well as why to read them...and the books mentioned are mostly kind of older classics! I don't want to over analyze it...it was just enjoyable! I can't believe I never read his work before. I have Den reading it now!

 

So...my sister Paula is coming tomorrow...it's my bad that I would not let her come during this past awful year. But she is driving in tomorrow from McDonald, Ohio...the town we grew up in. She loves college football and yarn shops. She and her husband travel all over the world. She lives next door to her daughter and is always there for her four grandchildren...when she is in town. When she comes we are usually on the move all of the time. We like to pamper her and take her to yarn shops and out to dinner.

But...we will do all that but not dinner at night. Lunches are good but I am just not ready to go out to dinner...it's the hair thing. She has been cooking all week and is bringing lots of surprises. It's her way to take care of me plus all of the hats she knitted me all year. I can't wait to see her...to see family!

So...Den is recleaning her room...we always call it Paula's room. And he is recleaning her bathroom. We are ready for Paula!

Hugs,

Patty

  2. I just downloaded one of his books yesterday. He sounds interesting as an author.

  3. So excited that Paula is coming! She will give you a boost...and I'm sure she will convince you that your new hair is cool.

    Having family visit, especially when you haven't seen them in a while, can be so invigorating. That's how I felt when my eldest son and DIL came two summers ago. I want another summer with them!

    Enjoy...and I've heard such good things about Peter Swanson that I must grab this one.

  4. What lovely hosts you and Den are. She'll have a wonderful break staying with you two.
    And oh boy did your soft crab sandwiches sound so good. I've never had that in a sammie, only in a sushi roll. Thank you for your warm welcome back. I'm glad my card is some eye candy for you. My neighbor had passed down that stamp set to me and I was itchin' to use it.

    1. Thank you, Patty, for the compliment. For me, crochet is a nice change from knitting. I like crocheting stuffies as it's easier to start and stop.

  5. Have a great time with your sister.
    I didn't like Swanson's The Girl With a Clock for a Heart, but maybe I should give him another try.
