By the time you read this, I'll be on holiday. Isn't that a great way to say vacation? But it's both a holiday and vacation. So it's a Voliday. Or a Holication. Anyway Greg, Emma and I are off to Oregon to ride the dunes for a few days with Blake and Kathi. Then the rest of the gang is coming up for a Thanksgiving dinner in the woods.
I'm thinking it will be a blast. Greg has experience on these machines called side by sides. In fact, he's talking about buying one for the house. He says he could ride it into the station. I think he should just walk if he's worried about the amount of gas his truck takes. My thoughts? I think he wants a new toy.
I'm hoping to get to know Kathi a little bit better. You know when you do things with other people, it tends to break those barriers. I'm hoping for at least a casual friendship. She does own the store across the street.
If all else fails, I'm bringing enough books to keep me busy. On the ride there and back if Greg isn't talking to me. That's the best thing about a book, they never judge you for bad behavior.
Anyway, I better finish packing. I hope Greg doesn't pick up my suitcase. He might question how many books I bought for the week.
A Very Mummy Holiday - Releasing October 29th - 2019
Jill Gardner has left her book-and-coffee shop behind to spend Thanksgiving week in coastal Oregon with her cop boyfriend, her golden retriever Emma, and a crowd of friends and family. But before the feast can start, foul play interrupts their vacation . . .
The rented house was supposed to be a relaxing getaway. But Jill and her companions feel a sense of danger instead. First, they learn that their hosts’ son had a fiancée, but her disappearance remains unexplained—and then they meet some menacing members of a local trail-riding club. When one of Jill and Greg’s friends finds human remains amid the dunes—with a diamond ring around one mummified finger—things start heating up fast, and they’ll be thankful just to survive through the long weekend . . .
