Hi everyone

My name is Margrete and I'm from Norway. I found this forum from Keri Arthur's webpage. I love to read but I don't drink any coffee :biggrin:
I'm a student and studying nautics/naval science. I read almost anything but at the moment I'm mostly reading paranormals or fantasy books

Hi Margrete!

Well you will have tons of people to talk to if you like Keri's books! Feel free to look around and stay a while! We are open 24/7 so that should work in Norway! WOW!

Welcome to our forum family!

Hi Margrete,

Welcome! Norway is a place I've always wanted to visit. Maybe I'll get there one day.
Keri's books are great, aren't they? I'm a big Riley fan.

thanks Karenne and Shelley.

Norway is great and with many similarities to NZ. I ended up spending a year in Dunedin as an exchange student 5 years ago. I loved it, great country, one of the best things I remember was a 2 week bus trip around the North Island and a sailing trip near Steward Island.
Yes, agree Keri's books are great, I'm a big Riley fan as well but I'm disliking Quinn alot at the moment. I'm looking forward to book 6 coming next year
BTW Shelley I loved your Summer in the City of Sails book

Hiya Margrete! Glad you found the forums and hope you have a great time posting with us. Cheerleader

I have to agree that Keri's books are the best. Stop by and check out all the threads in her forum. We seem to get off topic a bit here and there, but we come back around. Feel free to jump in and start a discussion of your own. :)

Thanks, Margrete! I'm so glad you enjoyed Summer's story. Did you do the train trip through the Tairei Gorge to Middlemarch while you were in Dunedin? The reason I ask is that my Middlemarch Mates series, starting with Scarlet Woman, is set there. I haven't done the train trip myself but I've visited Middlemarch.

Good luck with your exams.

No, I didn't do the train trip :( , but I've been to Middlemarch, beautiful scenery. I've checked out the Middlemarch Mates books and I'm looking forward to reading them.



Good luck with your exams.

Thanks :)

My nephew did the train trip and said it was really spectacular. Maybe one day! I hope you enjoy the Middlemarch books. I've just sold the 4th book in the series, which I'm really excited about.

Shelley :-)

Welcome Margrete!

You'll love it here! Not all of us drink coffee, I've been known to do decaf once in a great while but my favorite winter hot drink is hot chocolate. LOL

I have Keri Arthur on my TBR list, everyone keeps raving about her, and so I know I have to read her.

Hello Margrete and welcome. I can only imagine how beautiful Norway is to actually see. I know I would love to pay it a visit. I don't think coffee either but the family here is great and growing and it is a fun place to communicate :)

Hugs Linda

Hi Regina and Linda :)

Here are some photos for you Linda so you don't have to imagine it. They are from the island in Lofoten where I grew up. I like showing it off, it's so beautiful when the weather is nice :tt2:
