“And then the doorbell rings.”

Stupid doorbell! 😆 Just when things are getting 🌶️

Also, feel that Tiffy would appreciate the shark-print skirt I‘m wearing. Love reading about her different quirky outfits!

“I follow Tiffy and Johnny as they weave their way between sunbathers and deck chairs on their way to the shoreline. Stop for a moment to kick off my shoes, the pebbles cool beneath my feet. Sun blazes low across the water and wet shingle shines silver. Tiffy‘s hair burns red. Johnny White is wrestling off his shirt as he goes.
And now . . . ahh. Tiffy is, too.”

The written format of this one is not appealing ;)...who emails so much when there was Whatsapp and other messaging apps, all very much in use in 2018...but the crime is quite cleverly constructed with no shortage of red herrings. I was initially irritated with all the correspondence and way too many characters, but my ever-piquing interest for the truth actually made me finish 400+ pages in a day! Some really interesting surprises towards the end

Thanks to @KarenUK for putting this on my #readersradar last night. (And for the #pop23 prompt! 😁) Set in the 1970s, a doctor‘s wife discovers her husband‘s affair and starts writing to the other woman‘s husband, and we also see letters between the doctor and his paramour.

It‘s only a short story / novella but still packs a punch and there‘s room for a bit of a twist too.

KarenUK Glad you enjoyed it…. And after reading this, I just found out from one of my booksellers that all her books are set in the same ‘universe‘! Apparently there‘s an overlap of a character in every book…. (In this one she mentions a Daisy Jones LP) 1d

squirrelbrain @KarenUK - I noticed the Daisy reference. Mick Riva was also mentioned, who was in both of the other 2 TJR books that I‘ve read.(Evelyn Hugo and Malibu Rising). 1d
OriginalCyn620 On my tbr! 1d
Ruthiella I‘ve only read Daisy Jones by TJR and I didn‘t really like it. I need to give another book from her a chance. Maybe Evelyn Hugo? 🤔 (edited) 1d
squirrelbrain Yes, I would say Evelyn Hugo is the best one I‘ve read of hers @Ruthiella 1d
Cortg @Ruthiella I loved Evelyn Hugo! My favorite by her as well. 1d
Cortg I wasn‘t aware of this title, I‘ll have to check it out! 1d

After reading The Twyford Code, I decided to reread The Appeal. Structure-wise, I think I like The Appeal better. However, I liked how everything was brought together in the end with TheTwyford Code. Regardless, I'll keep reading Hallett's work.

ShelleyBooksie This book made my fav book podcast top ten books from last year list. It sounds so interesting! 2d

“I don't want to be married just to be married. I can't think of anything lonelier than spending the rest of my life with someone I can't talk to, or worse, someone I can't be silent with.”
