It's Monday! What Are You Reading?

It's Monday! What Are You Reading? is a place to meet up and share what you have been, are and about to be reading over the week.  It's a great post to organise yourself. It's an opportunity to visit and comment, and er... add to that ever growing TBR pile! So welcome in everyone. This meme started with J Kaye's Blog   and then was taken up by Sheila from Book Journey. Sheila then passed it on to Kathryn at the Book Date. And here we are!

What's happening here?

This past week brought some much needed sunshine to Southern Norway after more major flooding to the area due to the abnormal amount of rain we've had these past months. With clear skies, brings overnight frosts, although it's lovely to see the stars again. Leaves are now falling off the trees as winter gets nearer but for now I'm just glad it isn't raining.

With NaNoWriMo only a couple of days away, I've spent the last week preparing for this month long writerthon. I'll still be blogging and reading but not sure how much I will manage with the latter based on last weeks read count. Still, November is a perfect time for this venture or any hobby because the clocks went back this past weekend, so now it's dark by 5pm.

What am I currently reading?

Romance writer Julia Landon knows how to write a happily-ever-after. Creating one for herself is a whole different story. But after a surprising--and surprisingly passionate--kiss under the mistletoe at Harmony Harbor's holiday party last year, Julia thought she might have finally found her very own chance at true love. Until she learns her Mr. Tall, Dark, and Broodingly Handsome has sworn off relationships. Well, if she can't have him in real life, Julia knows just how to get the next best thing....
Aidan's only priority is to be the best single dad ever. And this year, he plans to make the holidays magical for his little girl, Ella Rose. But visions of stolen kisses under the mistletoe keep dancing in his head, and when he finds out Julia has written him into her latest novel, he can't help imagining the possibilities of a future together. Little does he know, though, Julia has been keeping a secret that threatens all their dreams. Luckily, 'tis the season for a little Christmas magic.

Thoughts so far…

I've read all the published books is the Harmony Harbor series and Sugarplum Way is the fourth book which is published tomorrow (31st October) All the books can be read as standalone but with a mild paranormal thread running through the entire series, I recommend reading them all in order. So far, this instalment is living up to my expectations and I'm enjoying so far. The protagonists are both amusing and irritating in their own way depending on who makes the observation, so there are plenty of sparks flying between them. Therefore, I'm feeling confident this novel will keep me more than entertained for the duration.
