I just loved it! 🥰 The Scouse humour and dialect was boss and very close to home 😊 loved reading a book where I knew all the areas etc it's a great series. That ending was too much 😢

suzie.reads @MicheleinPhilly it was really sad got the next book ready to read 1mo
MicheleinPhilly I read the next one immediately after. Trying to hold off on the 4th for a bit but the temptation is strong! 1mo
suzie.reads @MicheleinPhilly I spread out my series reading the next book in the David Jacksom series next 1mo
MicheleinPhilly I have to start that series. 1mo
suzie.reads @MicheleinPhilly I think its slightly better than the Luca Veste series but the scouse humour is more evident in these. 1mo

This cracked me up 😂 Scouse-o-meter 😂
Jamie Carragher scouse 👌🏼

Velvetfur Hahaha! I'd just like to point out, as a Scouser who's lost her accent by now, that Mel C is not a Scouser, she from Widnes (so I'm told) 😂😂 (I'm chuckling away at all this btw!) 1mo
suzie.reads @Velvetfur she was born in Whiston same as Stevie G but that's the point of the comment I think. Plastic scouse to proper scouser. 1mo
Velvetfur @suzie.reads Erm, I'd like to also point out that although I know the names Stevie G and Jamie Caragher, I don't know anything about them...! Stevie is a footballer I believe (Steven Gerrard??) and Jamie.....I will have to assume he's a footballer too....😂 1mo

suzie.reads @Velvetfur yeah they both played for Liverpool 😂 1mo
Velvetfur @suzie.reads OK thanks! I never cared for football 😂 Oh and I stand corrected about Mel C's origins too, something else I never paid much attention to 😂 1mo
suzie.reads @Velvetfur I don't even know how I know that fact 😂 I don't even like the spice girls haha 1mo

This cracked me up kids have definitely become more scouse, don't know where its come from 😂 loving this book already ❤

TrishB My daughter is so scouse, told her if she goes away to uni she‘ll have to practice talking slowly. Love this series! 1mo
suzie.reads @TrishB it makes me laugh how scouse some people are now. Loving this book so far, hubby is from West Derby aswell, I automatically feel connected to the book 😊 1mo
TrishB My hubby from West Derby too! (edited) 1mo

Book #2 in the Murphy and Rossi series. Love the dynamic between the leads as well those with the secondary characters. I also love how unabashedly Liverpudlian this series is even though I‘ve never been. That ending though. 😭 4🌟

suzie.reads This is one of my tbr books this month can't wait for it. Set in my hometown 😊 1mo
TrishB Can‘t wait for you to visit 😁 1mo

TrishB Oh how fab 😁😁 1mo
MicheleinPhilly @TrishB I doubt it would be anytime soon as we have certain travel obligations. I should just book something and surprise her with it. I‘ve done that before but never overseas. “Babe, I spent an obscene amount of money so we could sit in the 3rd row to see my fantasy wife in a play. We‘ll be spending Christmas in NY.” She was initially 🙄 but she got over it. ☺️ 1mo
TrishB Lol 😁 the gift to end all gifts! 1mo
MicheleinPhilly @TrishB She basically sat looking at me through the play like 😒 because I was 😍. 😂 1mo

Good crime novel. Like the MCs, crime solving was good, relationships developing interestingly and ended on a big twist!
Weird reading something set in your home city though, I knew everywhere in this! Do people outside Liverpool understand the dialect in the book? Not sure about that.

Cinfhen I‘m often thrown by British slang in books 1y
TrishB @Cinfhen this is even more extreme as scouse (Liverpool dialect) is difficult to understand when spoken- never mind written down! 1y
Cinfhen I‘ll be skipping this then, but I do love a book that has a local vibe. I read a book that I really didn‘t care for but because it was set in my neighborhood and I knew EVERY location it made the read almost personal 1y

Swe_Eva If I come across a tricky dialect, I try to find someone (YouTube tends to be helpful) and listen a while and then read part of the book aloud until I've "caught on." If it's a really tricky one, I'll just go with the audio book since written dialect is harder to decipher than spoken. 1y
TrishB @Cinfhen I definitely liked that about the book! Knowing every corner does make it personal! 1y
TrishB @Swe_Eva that‘s a good idea! I obviously wasn‘t struggling with this one as it‘s my own accent - but I did wonder how others would find it! 1y
CarolynM I often struggle with phonetic dialogue in books, even when it represents my own accent! I get why writers do it, I just find it so much harder to read. 1y
TrishB @CarolynM I agree- it can become very difficult! 1y

Quick lunch time read. I was reminded of this series by @andrew61 yesterday, I‘ve read number 1, but have 1-4 on the pile. Crime thrillers set in Liverpool, author is an alumni of the Uni.
Probably be only reading today as straight to the match from work. Semi final, Champions League 😱😱 big game.

Balibee146 Have fun xx 1y
arlenefinnigan What a result! Meanwhile I wish I'd stayed at home reading about owls. Oldham are going down 😢 1y
Cathythoughts Yes ! Have fun at the match... I hope your team wins 👍🏻 1y
TrishB @arlenefinnigan 😔 awww. 1y
