Thin Air
Thin Air: A Shetland Mystery | Ann Cleeves
When a woman mysteriously disappears, Detectives Jimmy Perez and Willow Reeves are assigned to the case and discover that the victim had an unhealthy and obsessive interest in a cold case involving the drowning of a local child, which just might have been the death of her.

I devoured this! Maybe my favorite so far. So many possibilities, yet I rarely get close to figuring out whodunnit in Shetland 😂. Of course, having watched the series helps me picture the settings, and since most of the tv mysteries are different from those in the books, it doesn‘t ruin the books by knowing how things work out. As usual, picture has nothing to do with the book, just my back yard.

LiteraryinLawrence Is this a series where it‘s important to read each book in order or can you dip in and out? 4w
Lynnsoprano @LiteraryinLawrence I‘ve been reading them in order, and there are circumstances surrounding the main characters that I think would make it difficult to do going in and out. 4w

Another great one by Ann Cleeves. I love the Shetland series.

After disliking every other book I read during the last two weeks I returned to Cleeves. Right decision. It was a relief to be able to relax and trust that I was in good hands. This entry to the series was a little light on Perez which I found disappointing but otherwise it was good to be back in the Shetlands.

Another great installment in the Shetland series. No other books transport me somewhere else like these do. Cleeves does an amazing job describing both the atmospheric setting and island life so that as the reader, you feel like you are right there! If you like the Three Pines series, then I recommend this one to you as well!

This was my first Shetland book. I‘ve read other of Ann‘s books, & I‘ve seen the Shetland tv series, so I held off. Well. It was WONDERFUL. I started in the middle of the series, but it differs from the television episodes, so it‘s fine. Mostly, it‘s leisurely and literary, and oh, it sucks you in. Jimmy Perez is a terrific character. Highly recommended. I‘m getting close to a #BookSpinBingo!

Sunrise yesterday. It‘s been a lovely spring!

In August I took two weeks of vacation and cautiously ventured away from home a few times. In addition to my little beach trip, I also took a couple day trips. On one of them I treated myspouse to lunch beside this beautiful lake in the mountains.

I finished 8 books, including 3-6 of the Shetland series. Also:
-The Book of Delights (Gay)
-Babel (Dorren)
-The Henna Artist (Joshi)
-Girl Gone Missing (Rendon)

Not a bad month!

This was just okay. I enjoyed the first half, the middle dragged on, and the ending was anticlimactic. I couldn‘t understand the culprit or their motive. I did like the setting and the audiobook narrator, but I don‘t think I‘ll continue with this series.

First week of curbside service at work is complete! Got more reading done in the first half of the week, but better than nothing.

Bailed on my #doublespin, “‘89 Walls: lost interest.

Two hours left on “Thin Air.”

I also started “Call Down the Hawk” and really enjoying it so far.

Finished “The Southern Book Club‘s Guide to Slaying Vampires-” ⭐⭐⭐

Making good progress on “Thin Air-” it‘s a bit of a slow burn, but I‘m really enjoying the audiobook narrator.

I also started “ ‘89 Walls-” okay so far, a quick read but not sure if I like it or not...

Love these trips to Scotland and this series is great, I only have two left now, which is both ☹️ and 😁. I promised myself I could start a new series when I finished one I was reading.
This was the usual, twisty murder tale, I guessed about a chapter before the reveal but didn‘t figure out why. Good read 👍🏻

Balibee146 Whereabouts in Scotland is the setting? 😘😘 2y
TrishB @Balibee146 the Shetlands- they are always hopping between the islands too, so I like to have a little look on maps when I‘m reading. 😘 hope you and the family doing ok. 2y
Balibee146 @TrishB cool.... We are weirded out by all the 'free' time but just trying to stay quietly busy to distract ourselves. Hope you are all okay and that you are getting some hols from work xx 2y

His mind wandered. A week ago the Malcolmsons would have been preparing for the hamefarin‘, the house full of activity and the smell of baking. Friends and family would be turning out to help make bunting and #decorate the hall. Caroline would be in her element directing proceedings. #QuotsyDec19

As I haven‘t read one of her books for a while and I needed a familiar read I got stuck into this. I love the descriptions of the Shetlands and hope to get there next year. Another place I‘ve fallen for through my reading. 😊
I enjoyed the story and the ending was plausible and I didn‘t guess it at all. Great characters , very easy to imagine, helped a little by the TV series. Would be a good plane read. @MrsMalaprop

Once again story kept me guessing to the end. Second: apparently all the houses in Shetland have names. I must name mine. Third: I need to go farther north than John O Groats. According to the Googles; it's doesn't appear that you can get to Shetland from there.
Whose been? 🚢🛫🤷
#traveltips #shetland #cantgettherefromhere

SusanInTiburon Haven‘t been up that far. We were in Dornoch last summer and all the houses had names. I‘d go again in a heartbeat. 4y
Andrew65 We go to John O‘ Groats area every year, we have a few camp sites we visit in the motorhome that you can pitch overlooking the sea and the Orkney Islands. My very favourite place. There is a foot passenger ferry from John O‘Groats to the Orkneys and they do a day trip which includes coach travel around the Orkneys visiting the Italian Chapel and The Churchill Barrier. Good on a smooth day but can get rough on a bad day. (edited) 4y
Andrew65 I don‘t think you can get a ferry from the very north of Scotland to the Shetlands but you can get Ferries to the Orkneys and I think you can then get a different Ferry to the Shetlands from there. There are car ferries to the Orkneys at Gills Bay a few miles west of John o‘groats and from Scrabster near Thurso which is about 22 miles west of John O‘Groats. I believe the only ferry to Shetland from mainland is from Aberdeen. 4y

This is the sixth book in the Shetland mystery series. Inspector Perez is called to the small island of Unst to investigate the disappearance of a young woman visiting for a wedding. Her disappearance my be linked to the sighting by some of the ghost of Peerie Lizzie, a girl drowned years ago. As with the previous books, the story is engrossing with unexpected twists. A very good read.

ReadingEnvy Sounds good to me! 5y
myellenbee If you haven't read any if the Shetland series, you might want to read them in order. Although the mysteries in each book are resolved, the main detectives and characters develop quite a bit with their own story lines. Reading them out of order will spoil some important points. Also if you have seen the TV series those character details are completely changed. The first book is Raven Black, I was hooked in one! @ReadingEnvy 5y
ReadingEnvy @myellenbee Ah thanks will do. I love cold weather islands and haven't yet read anything set on the Shetland Islands! 5y

Continuing my weekend introvert reading party. I finished Aunt Dimity and the Widow's Curse and am on to Thin Air by Ann Cleeves.
To make it even more cozy inside, there have been thunderstorms all afternoon. There's nothing like reading on a rainy day.

Bk6 in the Shetland series, this was a really great story, actually had me guessing at the ending. I love these books, for the setting as much as the story.Three best friends from university travel to the Shetland island of Unst for one of the groups wedding to an islander. When one of them goes missing after the ceremony, DI Perez & team are called in to search, then her body is found in a loch. Is it tied to the ghost story of a little girl?

#marchintoreading #day10 #readandeat My dinner tonight is homemade rissoles with buttered potatoes, peas & beans in bed. I feel like I'm always complaining, but I'm feeling really awful this week, really really bad flare up of my inflammatory arthritis, so if I'm not posting I'll be in hospital. Again. But geez the rissole is nice!
