“I just wish they’d remember I’m thirty-two and not fifteen.” Colin looked down at her feet, and his lips twitched. She followed his gaze. She had on a cozy red plaid onesie with fake fur lining the hood and reindeer slippers on her feet. She shrugged, smiling up at him. “What can I say? I love Christmas.”
Maybe because he didn’t smile often, it felt like a precious gift when he did, like you meant something to him, like you were special.
She ignored her inner hussy, who yelled Who needs a bed and suggested Julia throw herself on the floor at his feet. Her inner hussy was way more optimistic about their chances of getting lucky tonight.
…her fluorescent pink vibrator sailed through the air to land with a splash in the goldfish bowl sitting on the bench at the end of her bed. She slapped her hands over her mouth, releasing a muffled “I’ve killed Eric and Ariel! … It’s not funny! My fish are drowning. Save them!”
A lie means saying something with a deliberate intent to deceive, and what I did is more like embellish the truth.
Sugarplum Way was a sweet and amusing story with an entertaining and active storyline. Colleen celebrated her first anniversary as a ghost, the holiday season was in full swing, romance was in the air, petty small-town rivalries/politics/ gossip continued to rule, snow was falling, Julia kept the firemen busy and broke the record for false fire alarms from burning her food, and The Secret Keeper of Harmony Harbor book was still unaccounted for, which kept the vast majority a bit on edge and more than a few extremely anxious about their deeply-held secrets being exposed. I smirked my way through this fun and jovial tale, although it was not all easy breezy for Julia as she was busy as a beaver daydreaming and maintaining a long-held secret crush on a growly and complicated Gallagher while actively cloaking her secret identity, organizing the community Christmas committee, writing a book, covertly playing fairy godmother, running her store, and attempting to bolster and imbue the entire town with Christmas cheer. I adored her tremendous heart, clever wit, and sweet nature and have enjoyed every installment of this endearing series thus far. I doubt I could ever tire of learning the dark secrets and personal shame of the various townspeople, as I’m snoopy like that. I was provided with a review copy of this delightful book by TLC Book Tours.
