If you’re not familiar with The Dixie Chicks’ Goodbye Earl, click on the link.
Actually Earl, I think you ARE dying and I’m glad you lost so much of your punch and swerved east a bit. From everything I can see and have heard, the Outer Banks are just fine. Flooded in a few spots, maybe even a road or two washed out, but that’s not really a huge, hairy deal down there.
Sis wishes she could go inspect the damage for herself. I really don’t look for it to be much worse than what you see here, with lots of debris and battered dunes.
Reading A Timely Vision while Earl was at his strongest probably helped me get swept away by this little mystery. First in a series, set in Duck, North Carolina. Duck just happens to be part of the Outer Banks I’ve been babbling about this week.
There are some tepid reviews for this book, but I loved it. I truly couldn’t put it down, not even to knit. I tried to get Gretchen to read to me while I was doing my yoga, but she informed me that I should be concentrating on deep breaths, not a plot. She’s right of course, but we all suffered for it, because the three of us stayed up past midnight to finish the book.
No steamy sex scenes, a main character I only wish was the real mayor of Duck so I could beg an introduction and make a new friend… My big gripe is petty; how do you write a book about Duck and not mention Duck Donuts by name?!
Seriously though, if you like fluffy little mystery series – which it seems I do – this one is worth the read, whether you know Duck well or not at all. Amazon says #2 in the series comes out in March.
So, what’s ahead for your weekend? There’s nothing exciting happening here. Reading, knitting, hanging with the Knight and the fur-girls…
