The Patmos Deception by Davis Bunn

Sometimes it seems as if just when we get under us and are ready to run, the bottom falls out once again and we fall even harder than before. Carey Mather's experiences that at the beginning of The Patmos Deception. But will a visit from an old friend help her to overcome her biggest fears?

Carey Mathers feels as though she has things all under control. She has a great degree, a great job lined up and is excited at the possibility of living in Greece and doing a job she has been working hard to secure. But once she arrives in Greece, she finds her place of employment closed and it at an utter loss once again. Then she receives a call from an old friend, Nick Hennessy, who wants to hire her to work with him on a story about disappearing Greek antiquities. Figuring she has nothing to lose, Carey agrees and quickly finds herself in the middle of an intense investigation of an organized crime group. And, not only does Carey fear the disappearance of more artifacts, but also that Nick may steal her heart.

Davis Bunn has written a great book. It is my first one by him and I like it quite a bit. There was just enough suspense, history, and romance to keep it all interesting. I enjoyed learning about a place that I knew very little about. And Bunn left enough unanswered questions by the end, that I anticipate another book with same characters in the near future.

L.M Montgomery's Beginning and End

My birthday present to myself this year was to join the Modern Mrs. Darcy Book Club. It is an online book club and I am so excited to be a part of it. I haven't been in book club in a long time, mostly because all of the invitations I get usually end with, "and at our meetings, we usually don't talk about the book very much, so it doesn't matter if you read it or not." What is the point of a book club if you are not actually going to talk about the book? So, anyway, I am excited to be a part of a community of people who read as much as I do and like to talk about what they read.
I was even more excited when I learned that the pick for November was going to be Emily of New Moon. And since I have lived on PEI for almost 7 years and had yet to visit L. M. Montgomery's Birthplace, I figured it was high time. So the kids and I hopped in the van this afternoon and drove through some lovely countryside to New London, PEI.

Coming Home from Michigan

Following the Truck Parade, we spent a bit of time at a park near Nick and Dawn's house. And then off to airport. 
We were nicely on time. Check-in went fine, but a little longer because of Gideon not being connected to our family. Security was a breeze and we were soon on our way and in Detroit. We easily found our gate in Detroit, had a 10 minute delay for boarding, but soon enough we were on the plane.
And that it when the bottom fell out. 
While on the plane, the pilots revived notice that Toronto was shut down due to weather. We waited about 20-30 minutes on the plane. They gave us snacks. Then they had us get off the plane and wait in the terminal. Every 30 minutes or so we would be updated that we were still delayed. And we were watching dark clouds and lightening roll into the area surround Detroit, too. Soon, the Detroit airport was shut down too. They brought out snacks and drinks a few different times, but finally around 10 pm (so over 5 hours of being delayed in the a…

A Farm Boy Already

I don't fully understand how this happens, but Gideon already loves the tractor. If he is in the kitchen or the living room and he hears the sound of the tractor, he crawls to the closest window and has a look outside. When he sees it, he often starts drumming on the window sill, so excited. He repeats a little "T" sound, like he is trying to say tractor. He hasn't actually gone for a ride in the tractor, yet. But I think he will be pretty excited to that some day soon.
