I haven‘t posted in a bit because it‘s been a crazy couple of weeks with my father in the hospital and flying to see him. This may have affected my review of this book as I started it before Dad got sick and finished it when I returned home. I would put this between a pick and a so-so. There are some lovely moments and I read parts of this book with my heart in my throat. However, as it ambles along it never really goes anywhere in the end.

AmyG I hope your father is well. 2mo

Can Jane Harper do any wrong? I didn't love this quite as much as The Lost Man but her damaged characters and focus on their natural environment is still so good.

Book 17 2021 - I finished this one on my hammock this evening. Although I found some of the subject matter difficult to read the writing was exceptional and I will definitely be picking up more by this author. I highly recommend this book but there is a trigger warning for harm to children. Another book ticked off #booked2021 #setinaustralia

Cinfhen Yay!! This one was really atmospheric 💥☀️☺️great choice 6mo
BarbaraTheBibliophage Perfect reading spot! 🌅 6mo

I‘d forgotten how much I love Liane Moriarty! I didn‘t particularly like Nine Perfect Strangers, so I hesitated picking up another one, but I‘m so glad I did! Two love stories involving one man and his current girlfriend and his ex-girlfriend turned stalker. The view point changes between the girlfriend and stalker. My second goal for #anywayyoureadathon is now complete! #booked2021 #setinaustralia

Eggbeater Great job! 👍 7mo
Megabooks I love this one! 7mo
BarbaraTheBibliophage Oh, the smell of tea rose! 🌹 7mo

I am finally getting back on my reading track after a couple of months in the weeds. I have some catching up to do!!And next up for #booked2021 is The Dry for #setinaustralia I have to admit I‘m really struggling with this one even though it is very well written due to the nature of the crime. But I‘m persevering!

BarbaraTheBibliophage Glad you‘ve got your reading mojo back! Sorry the book isn‘t so great. 😎 (edited) 7mo
Magpiegem @BarbaraTheBibliophage the book is really good, it‘s just really find child murder hard to read about even if it‘s fictional. So I find myself really tense when I‘m reading it xx 7mo
BarbaraTheBibliophage Yeah, I feel the same. Our family went through the tragic death of an 18 year old by car accident (our granddaughter) and I haven‘t been comfortable reading or watching stories about kids in danger since then. Sometimes I still gut through the good ones … but I can‘t do much. 7mo
Magpiegem @BarbaraTheBibliophage I‘m so sorry for the loss of your granddaughter. I can‘t begin to imagine how hard it makes reading about children in danger with that experience. Xx 7mo

This would have been read in March if I'd started it earlier. I ended up skipping most of the chapters focusing on the women on the course, I just read the investigation chapters.

What an underrated gem! The author covered topics I both knew about and didn‘t know with grace, humor, and emotion. I appreciated how mental illness was covered in this book-instead of a magic fix, the characters continued to struggle and make improvements.
