WONDROUS WORDS WEDNESDAY…
It is hosted by Kathy, over at BermudaOnion’s Weblog. You can either stop by and leave a link to your own ‘mystery’ words of the week, or just browse the eclectic mix of words that others have discovered, there is always a great selection.
Don’t forget that Kathy and the rest of us, all love to read your comments as well!!
My words this week are taken from my recently finished book, a contemporary romantic suspense:
His Chosen Bride by Sherry Gloag
‘I don’t like strong tea, but how can you drink this peelly-wally brew?’
Peelly-wally,( peely-wally, peely wallie) …. (Scottish word) .. Sickly, Pasty, Wan, Pale, Peeeky, Unwell, Pale and Tired.
‘Then he’s wasting his time. I have no intention of returning home before your Valentine shindig, is that the right word?’
Shindig …. A festive party, often with dancing. Also called shindy.
‘And he wondered whether the canny old soul had had an ulterior motive when he sent his eldest son to Scotland for a recuperative holiday’
Canny … Careful and shrewd, especially where one’s own interests are concerned. Cautious in spending money; frugal.
As this was an author invitation to read and review, a download of His Chosen Bride was sent to me free of charge, by its author, Sherry Gloag.
This will in no way influence any comments I may express about the book, in any blog article I may post. Any thoughts or comments are my own personal opinion and I am in no way being monetarily compensated for this, or any other article.
