Long Bright River
Long Bright River | Liz Moore
Set in Northeast Philadelphia, Long Bright River is a compelling and gritty novel about two women's struggles one, a police officer who patrols a high-crime district populated by dealers and sex workers; the other, her sister who is suffering from addiction and is missing. Against the backdrop of a small community that is foundering in an endless cycle of drug addiction, desperation and crime, Officer Fitzpatrick's search for her sister, Kacey, is made more urgent when she discovers a body. Then a second. Then a third. A killer is on the loose, targeting women who engage in sex work to fund their addictions. With every new victim, Officer Fitzpatrick is filled with the fear that it might be Kacey; relief when it is not and dread that they may not catch the killer before it is too late.

I just did not enjoy this one. It started out so strong but then dragged on and on. The Simon storyline fell flat, and there was not enough talk about how the opioid crisis effects families and small towns. The parts at the end were strong, but there was enough discussed throughout the 480 pages to support the ending. And the murder mystery made no sense. I am happy I read Dopesick a few months ago because it helped me understand the topic

What?! A cop just leaves her gun in a duffel bag inside a bodega to go spy on her ex boyfriend? This Mickey character is extremely negligent and frankly not a very good investigator. She loses the guy 10 seconds after he gets out of his car and starts walking. I really lose respect for her the further into this book I get

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ A story of 2 sisters, their complicated lives, dirty cops, family ties, and much more. The book was often heartbreaking but kept you hooked. What can I say - I love long books that really let me get to know the characters. The only reason it‘s not 5 stars is because the ending felt rushed.

mollyrotondo I still need to finish this for a book club that meets Sunday. I got side tracked with A Woman is No Man. This post is helping to motivate me to get back to Long Bright River 1w

The first chapter was wonderfully written and grabbed me. But I didn‘t find the storyline well executed or always believable. Kudos to Moore for shining light on the impacts of opioid addiction on communities. But I wanted a little more....

I‘m a quarter in. The open chapters really drew me in. Love the exchanges between Mickey and her rookie cop partner. Great dialogue. But so far not enjoying this one quite as much as I hoped. The story line of the sisters when younger feels a little rote. At the moment my other book The Golden Spruce has my attention far more. Will have plenty of time to read on the plane home today.

A tad slow and predictable but pretty good. Story line was intriguing. A story about family, dysfunctional family, addiction, and corruption. Mickey is a cop that patrols the streets where is drug addicted sister spends her time. When women start turning up murdered Mickey starts worrying for her sister. The only problem now is is that she seems to be missing. Will she find her before its too late or will her sister become another statistic?

Becker I agree, it‘s a bit slow but it‘s also a decent story. Worth reading 📖 4w

Liz Moore does it again! While I didn‘t love this quite as much as The Unseen World, it is still a 5⭐️ book. The #audiobook is great.

This will satisfy fans of police procedurals and mysteries, but there is more. The characters are wonderfully vivid. I loved Mickey and Casey, even with all of their faults. I loved the descriptions of Philly; I felt the cold, the rain, and the desperation in all the characters. It was so good. Read it!

When I started this book, I mistakenly thought it was about a dysfunctional family. There is that, but so much more. It is a convoluted mystery involving corruption, addiction, misplaced loyalties, lost and found families, with a good but also uncertain ending. It is filled with unreliable characters and I still don‘t know if I even like the narrator, but I loved the book. ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

Megabooks @BarbaraBB it is sitting on my bed in a booksleeve with a bookmark in it, so I‘d say odds are promising, but I‘m trying to finish field guide first. I can only keep four books in my head at a time. 😂😂 1mo
Anita That is awesome! How‘d you do it? 1mo
Chrissyreadit Yes! I may be more inclined to do a weekly forecast if I list possibilities instead! I always worry- what if I don‘t finish, what if I change my mind, what if I stop, read a different book and finish this later (I‘m thinking of you Braiding Sweetgrass and Braving The Wilderness last chapter). @Cinfhen sigh. 1mo
Megabooks @Anita I downloaded pic collage (I only use the free access.), and then I screenshot and crop book pictures from my library‘s overdrive app. Then for the “possibilities” I choose grid and add those pictures. Then I save the grid to my camera roll. Then I make the main collage with the freestyle layout choice. The key to pic collage is to crop the screenshots/pictures before you add them. Other than that, just play around with it a bit! 👍🏻👍🏻 1mo
Megabooks @Chrissyreadit that‘s how I was feeling. I‘m such a mood reader that I‘m not good at making concrete plans. But I do know what I have out from the library and what I‘m looking to use for challenges/readalongs/whatever, so I figured I‘d share that, for fun, not to tie myself to it. 1mo
Daisey I always look at my Weekly Forecast similarly. I share the books I‘m currently reading and whatever I might pick up next. Sometimes those possibilities stay possibilities for weeks while other books get read. This week there‘s one on there that is only a slight possibility and may be gone completely next week. 1mo
Suet624 Just a tip: if you‘re using PicCollage already, after selecting grid or freestyle, at the bottom of the screen you‘ll see “web images”. Click on that and then type the name of the book. The cover of the book will show up! @Anita (edited) 1mo
MissAimz_55 I like the idea of the possibilities grid too haha 1mo
Megabooks @Daisey Definitely a good way of looking at it. Totally agree! 👍🏻 1mo
Megabooks @Suet624 I did not know that! Mind blown 🤯 thanks for the tip! 1mo
Megabooks @MissAimz_55 sometimes a person needs possibilities! 1mo

A very current crime / police novel that looks at the opioid epidemic in Philadelphia, from the point of view of Mickey, the ‘sensible‘ sister. Mickey is a cop and her sister is one of the addicted, on the streets. When women start getting murdered Mickey is determined to find out who is responsible.

I didn‘t predict the twist in the middle (not the whodunit one!) and I‘d like to see more of Mickey.... always a good sign!

Tackling a story that centers on addiction is a timely and relatable one, and the idea to do it through sisters - one an addict, the other a cop - is promising. But something about the writing prevented me from really getting into the story; it felt very stilted and forced. But despite being nearly 500 pages, it is a quick read that enjoyed enough not to pan it.

I started this one even if I'm not done with There, There, which I am also reading, but I don't want to return it and put it in hold again since there is such a long wait for it and I started to get into the groove with it. Some books are right at some moments but not others so I'm going to go with it.

Why aren‘t there more stories about the boring sister— the dutiful, responsible person who holds everything together and picks up the pieces of other people‘s misadventures? That‘s the protagonist in this novel and I loved a story from that person‘s perspective. Mickey is a cop from a family destroyed by addiction. When several women from her beat are killed, she begins a search for her heroin-addicted sister who seems to have disappeared.

This book took me an incredibly long time to get into. While this touches on a very delicate subject that has impacted many families across our country, I had a very hard time empathizing with the main character and caring what happened in her story. The last 100 or so pages went very quick as things finally started to come together, but really for me this could have been a much shorter book.

Fabulous #botm pick. One of the best books I've read this year. Mickey is a cop in the Kensington section of Philadelphia, which has a lot of people impacted by the opioid epidemic. Her sister is addicted too, but their paths rarely cross except on the streets of Kensington. However, when a string of murders of young women occurs at the same time as her sister going missing, Mickey decides to investigate. Haunting, literary, thrilling. 5⭐

Phenomenal! I certainly wasn't expecting to inhale this almost 500 page book today but alas, I couldn't put it down. Part crime fiction, part literary fiction, it's a tale of two sisters (one a cop and one a heroin addict), effectively told in alternating timelines. Definitely going up on the #BOTM favorites shelf 👏🏽

Long Bright River is told in present time and in flashbacks. Michaela is looking for her sister at the same time trying to find the murderer. Who could it be? It sheds light on the opioid epidemic and the police force. Super quick and enthralling read.

A snowy day calls for finishing a good book and drinking warm tea. This novel is part mystery and part family drama. It had considerably more depth than usual police procedurals. I enjoyed the character development and writing style. At the heart of the plot is the story of the thousands of people affected by the opioid epidemic. The book felt realistic yet also showed compassion for those affected. Such a timely, but difficult read. ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐

Amiable Yes! That‘s exactly how I prefer to spend a snowy day. 2mo
