I never sit down to read when I’m supposed to be writing. Never. Except today.
HH had his first cardio rehab appointment, so I took my Kindle with me. We met his therapist together and answered LOTS of questions before HH started his exercises. He gets impatient, so as usual, he pushed his pages about his eating habits over to me to fill out for him. Probably better. I know what he eats for every meal because I cook most of them, and we eat out together. We eat pretty healthy, so he looked good on those parts of the questionnaire, but he might not have been honest about the ice cream and snacks he enjoys. When we finished with that, I sat in the lobby and read while he did his workout. And I was enjoying myself but didn’t get to finish the book before he was finished.
We ran a few chores before coming home, and we were both starving, so we had lunch. And then, did I go back and write like a good author? NO! I plopped on the couch to finish the book. And I’m so glad I did. Wow! Mae Clair and Staci Troilo didn’t slack off on the endings for their dual timeline plots. And what I enjoyed even more, is that they tied them together with some serious twists and turns, and even better, a nice dab of irony.
I’ve enjoyed a lot of books this year, but this has to be one of my favorites. I have a few auto-buy authors, and both of these ladies are on my list. And together? Even better!
I’m not one of the hosts on their book tour, and I’m glad. Because I get to gush over them instead of letting them post humble blurbs about their book. I Loved THE HAUNTING OF CHATHAM HOLLOW. Such a fun dual timeline mystery! And now I can get more sleep and sit at my computer and write, like I’m supposed to:)
