Her sister Margot, however, flown in from her glamorous career in LA, has other plans. Envisioning a luxurious weekend getaway, she goes right ahead and buys two ticketsone wayto Tregarrick.

Another book finished in September. Between a pick & a so-so for me but I‘ll round it up to pick for the hotel cat with his own Instagram account & I‘m a sucker for books set on islands on the Cornish Coast. Did not love most of the characters—the MC is fine, but I didn‘t love her sister & I had to yell at her for her choices & for not knowing who the killer was a bit to much. 🙄 It was an #ARC & I have the 2nd one, so we‘ll see if it improves.

I am in my bedroom with the animals as the rest of the first floor floors get destroyed in preparation for replacement. This is what a bedroom looks like when all shelves have to be emptied and some stray furniture has to be moved in too. ::sigh:: I‘ll just be huddled up in my bed reading to avoid looking at the mess.

daisyheadmaesie It‘s exciting to know the chaos is for a great project like floor replacement! It‘s gonna look awesome once it‘s done. :) 13mo
BookNAround @daisyheadmaesie I know I‘ll be happy once it‘s finished but right now the disaster is stressing me out. (edited) 13mo
Chrissyreadit It feels like forever when it is happening- but then it all looks so nice. 13mo
Kelly_the_Bookish_Sidekick It still looks neater than my place on its best day! 13mo

Enjoyable, but formulaic; not necessarily a bad thing, but easy to guess the story and the murderer.
