The Slow Waltz of Turtles
The Slow Waltz of Turtles: A Novel | Katherine Pancol
5 posts | 5 read | 5 to read
In this mega-bestseller from France and the follow-up to The Yellow Eyes of Crocodiles, a woman contends with divorce, family trouble, and even murder in her journey to discover who she really is. Fortysomething mother of two Josphine Corts is at a crossroads. She has just moved to a posh new apartment in Paris after the success of the historical novel she ghostwrote for her sister, Iris. Still struggling with her divorce--the result of her husband running off to Kenya to start a crocodile farm with his mistress--she is now entangled too in a messy lie orchestrated by her sister. And just when things seem they can't get any more complicated, people start turning up dead in her neighborhood. As Josphine struggles to find her voice and her confidence amidst a messy web of relationships and a string of murders, she and those around her must learn to push on with determination, like headstrong little turtles learning to dance slowly in a world that's too violent and moving too fast.

This is my #bookhaul from the local consignment shop. Anyone read any of these? They are all new to me, although I‘ve wanted the Miranda July book, No One Belongs Here More Than You, for some time.

Crazeedi Oh.my.goodness...you just picked three of my absolute favorite series. Donna Leon. The first one is this, but they are all excellent!!! 5mo
BlameJennyJane @Crazeedi really? I@have the book you tagged on Kindle and it sounds SO GOOD but I haven‘t read it yet. I left like 5 in the series behind at the store. Now I wonder if I should go back. I‘ve never heard anyone mention them before but your endorsement makes me want to jump right in. The descriptions sound awesome! 5mo
BlameJennyJane @Crazeedi I meant to ask... should I read the series in order? 5mo

Crazeedi @BlameJennyJane absolutely get all the books of series that you can!!!! And I always recommend reading in order, the character development and settings are developed in a wonderful way. There are like 28 books in this series I think. I spent a summer just gobbling them up one after another. If you enjoy Italian cuisine, quirky characters and mysteries that don't always end good guy wins bad guy loses, you will enjoy 5mo
BlameJennyJane @Crazeedi I went back today and grabbed all I‘d left behind yesterday! 28 is a lot but I‘ve got a good start on my collection. I absolutely love Italian cuisine, quirky characters and a good mystery! Thank you! 5mo
Crazeedi @BlameJennyJane you wont he sorry, it's my favorite series ever, brunetti is the best. They get better as you go! 5mo
BlameJennyJane @Crazeedi I‘m very excited! Thank you! 5mo
