Book Description:

 

"Every haunting has a design… 

Winter, 1809. Lord Francis Marryman’s wife, Patience, is dying. In the madness of his grief, desperate to keep Patience’s memory alive, he’s compelled to build a memorial in the form of a remote country Hall. But as the plans move forward, Marryman Hall seems to become alive with more than just memories.

Francis, a brilliant mathematician and scholar, has built more into the walls than just bricks and mortar.

Autumn, 2018. Siblings Greg and Lucy Knights, owners of K&K Publishing Company, are seeking a venue to celebrate the 18th anniversary of their company’s inception. At such short notice, there is only one option that still has vacancies: Marryman Hall.

Winter arrives and as heavy snow falls, the guests drop out until a much depleted party of just 6 reach their destination and soon find themselves snowed in. As the guests’ private lives and demons are exposed in the increasingly awkward, claustrophobic atmosphere , the secrets of Marryman Hall and her history are also brought into shocking light from the darkness. In his grief, it’s possible that Lord Francis Marryman may have made a terrible mistake…

The General Theory of Haunting is the perfect ghost story to curl up with on the long winter nights - like Marryman Hall's guests, you won't know what's truly happening until it's way too late..."

________________________________________

 

The General Theory of Haunting is a nicely-written, paranormal mystery thriller that moves slowly at first, picks up pace, has great character development, several surprises, and an absolutely fascinating theory on... well, hauntings.  Marryman Hall also manages to develope a personality of its own.  This isn't a horror novel, despite the hauntings.  But part of the novel make a beautiful love story.  Watching the time-spanning mystery of Marryman Hall unfold was just as exciting as the more usual action packed murder solving mysteries.  A lovely book.  I'm looking forward to more work from this author.

God Gave Us Easter, Lisa Tawn Bergren
God Gave Us Easter - Lisa Tawn Bergren,Laura J. Bryant

I enjoyed this Christian Children's book. I received this as part of a gift. I voluntarily chose to review this. I've given this a 5* rating. I really like the way this author explains things to the very young. I'm sure my grandchildren will enjoy this.

16 Tasks of the Festive Season - Square 5: Advent

Tasks for Advent: Post a pic of your advent calendar. (Festive cat, dog, hamster or other suitable pet background expressly encouraged.) 

 

Bonus task:  make your own advent calendar and post it.

 

Technically, it's not my own Advent calendar, but MT's.  I make a beer advent calendar for him every year.  He gets one bottle of, hopefully, new-to-him craft beer each day.  I find it works wonders helping him find his Christmas spirit.

 

I say hopefully because this is year 3 and no, I'm not organised AT ALL about how I do this, so every year I'm at the shop, with, luckily, the same sales guy, and he and I go through the stock pulling beers off the shelves with comments like:  

 

What about this one?  No... I think he had that last year...what about this one?  Definitely not - he won't appreciate guava, sage and pineapple in his beer... Oh! this is a new one and he'll really like it!

 

There's also a lot of me pulling beers off the shelves because they have pretty labels or hilarious names and the Purvis guy (Purvis is the shop name) telling me I have the worst taste in beer, but great taste in marketing. 

 

I DID get organised in one respect this year:  instead of buying gobs of tissue paper to wrap the bottles in, I had the brainstorm of buying some fabric remnants, and wrapping the bottles in those instead, making them re-useable year to year.  I cut them into the proper size, and then added two grommets to feed a ribbon through, allowing me to easily tie the whole thing up.  I used all the bits of ribbon I've saved from previous years' holidays, so each is a bit different (and not always a good color combo, but oh well).

 

I also got proactive about the numbered labels:  I bought a set of craft paper swing tags, drew as nice a set of numbers on them as I could, added a grommet and they'll now be the permanent day numbers for future years.  Earlier this year, I bought a nice old wooden box to put the bottles in too, so future years, this SHOULD be a snap to pull together; maybe then I can start keeping track of which beer I buy from year to year.

 

So, the finished product:

Without tags or cat.

 

With tags.

 

 With tags *and* cat.
