dayum. as always delightful and deep
So good! I‘m thinking of the name of Neil Young‘s band *Promice of the Real* .......Tana delivers the real here .. The characters, the hard hit of the recession in Ireland , setting - ghost estate in Dublin , a smooth read from start to finish. My favorite Tana so far.
“ That slow- motion silence inside the amber was over : the second we stepped out of the house , before we even stopped walking quietly..... “
Still reading & this is my favorite Tana so far 👍🏻♥️💔

I‘m spreading the love Sherri 😘
I really wanted there to be an actual animal 😫
The story drug on a bit but great character study by Ms. French, as we‘ve come to expect.
This was an interesting one, because I found the main character so unlikeable, and I think I was supposed to. Also, it took me a long time to get a grasp on what was going on with the crime. I didn‘t guess the details of the ending until a few pages before it was revealed. Also, it has some interesting things to say about mental health.
What happens if you follow all the rules, do all the right things yet the bad tides still hit you? French weaves a melancholy tale of the sacrifices that people make; things they do for love, and out of need. While this is absorbing, I find it not as solidly good as Faithful Place, which is my favourite so far. I like that she portrays her characters flawed and long-suffering, and probes into the minds of the suspects, victims and investigators.
I really enjoyed this one. It‘s creepy and twisty enough for anyone who loves mysteries but also kind of heart breaking. I enjoyed the police officer narrating this sorry and the moral ambiguity was great. Off to find number 5!
My consumption of the Dublin murder squad continues. Don‘t judge me for the wine it‘s been that sort of a Monday! (And for #BFC I did my swim this morning and took packed lunch to work so not a total wipeout!)
Just a heads up. Not sure this will happen with everyone, but my Litsy is broken. I can‘t see any notifications and can‘t see my replies to people. Hopefully it‘ll get straightened out soon.
Have a nice day !
Tana French tells a good suspenseful story. It struck me that a lot of the the bad things that happened in this book could have been avoided if people had only sought appropriate help at appropriate times. I guess it wouldn't have been much of a novel if that was the case, but still, let this be a warning to people who think they can deal with situations without proper help.
My favorite of her books so far. This one broke my heart in a way that is rare and worthy of some self analysis. As each detail of the plot was uncovered, I found myself tripping over new emotional hurdles. What a well crafted story. Highly recommended #tanafrench #brokenharbor
With all the heartache and darkness I‘ve come to expect from #French, this one also comes with the most compelling of the plots (in my opinion) thus far. Absolutely riveted and can‘t wait until I can listen to some more on my way home tonight #brokenharbor
I've heard this is one of her best. Some even claim it's as good as The Likeness. Really excited to rejoin the Squad.
Just finished this and I loved it! One of the best Tana French novels - perhaps second to the trespasser, in my opinion?
Mostly I'm disappointed that I've already finished this book!
I've been sick for a few weeks so I dropped behind on posting...
Finally feeling better now and spent the afternoon lying in prospect park. I am LOVING this Tana French!
Book 20 of my #52Booksin2018
Wow, was this book intense! I did not see the ending coming. I‘m trying to get through all of Tana French‘s books. This is my 2nd one. The first was Into the Woods.
This was a great mystery. It definitely had a lot going on, but I thoroughly enjoyed it.

Trying to relax and stay cool on this 96 Degree day! (Feels like 106) 😓☀️
I want to bring my book into the pool, but 😬😬😬
I haven‘t read all of Tana French‘s series yet but I loved the ones I‘ve read. They are what I thought of for #Ireland (Picture from the web. Mine are scattered around the house!) #magicalmarch @Alwaysbeenaloverofbooks
Day 3: Want Some Thrill. Detective stories are my go-to when I want a thrilling read. Tana French‘s flawed and complex detectives are some of my favorites. I‘ve read all of her books, but only own a few! I‘m sure that‘s something I can remedy 😉
I've decided to follow BookRiot's suggested Tana French binge read book order. I just finished Broken Harbor and I'm hooked!
Another solid pick from the TBR Jar! Tana French just gets better with every book and this one was no exception. Eerie setting, spot on characters, and plenty of twists to keep you guessing!
These two beauties ruined my sleep for a week! I stayed up way too late finishing Faithful Place, and scarcely came up for air before diving into Broken Harbor. I liked Mackey better as a narrator (and can‘t wait to see him again in The Secret Place!), but overall enjoyed the mystery in Broken Harbor more.
Just finished this. Anyone else read it, or other TF books?
I love the way this series revolves around a central office but is narrated by different characters. Each book has a distinct perspective and feel. This one is much more of a traditional crime procedural which isn't my jam -- gross descriptions. And the crime here is harder to read than the others. But I still enjoyed reading the story and felt a bit sad when spending time with the characters ended. #mommyreads #crime #booksforbreakfast
