Sunny Meadows vents!
Hi, everyone. I know what you're all thinking. Tis the season to be merry is the saying. Well, let me tell you. Lately it feels a whole lot more like tis the season to be scary.
Why you say?
Because I'm pretty darn close to murdering a certain someone.
Yup, you guessed it. One dark, brooding, ornery, cynical detective. Mitch is no help at all around the holidays, I'm finding out. You see this is my first year in Divinity, New York. I love the town. It's small and quaint and charming. The perfect place to open up my fortune-teller business.
Mostly perfect, anyway.
Mr. Grumpy pants is driving me crazy! In book one, we really don't like each other. I am a fortune teller, and he is a non-believer. Except there's so much chemistry between us, we can't help but grow on each other.
Then in book two we actually decide to give "us" a chance. Maybe even go on a real date. Except my Granny Gert is always stirring up trouble, and my cat Morty doesn't like Detective Stone, and my parents won't butt out and stay home where they belong.
However, I decided to put all that aside for the sake of the holidays. Christmas. My favorite time of year. Only the grump butt doesn't see the point in decorating. It's too much work and then you just have to take it down and he's busy keeping the streets safe, blah blah blah. He won't shop with me, either. Something about crowds not being his thing. He is enjoying Granny's cookies, though. (Granny has a cookie for everything), and he did try to help me wrap.
Ha! Sooooo not pretty.
6 days left until Christmas. Definitely not merry and totally scary! I'm terrified I won't finish in time. So tell me, is Christmas merry or scary to you? Are you done or still scrambling like me? Ready to kill someone yourself? Please make me feel like I'm not alone and leave a comment.
