I loved this book, very twisty.

Set in Australia at Christmas time during a heat wave (their summer is the opposite of countries north of the equator); Gemma is the lead detective in a murder of a beloved local teacher. Gamma also went to High School with the murder victim.

The main character, Henna, was a mess but I still rooted for her.

Loved the ending!

@crazyspine - do you want this book?

BFCR2 Wk#6 check-in. 4 out 6 books read (1 was an audiobook). I lost my momentum after I got back from vacation at the end of June. Only made my step goal 1 of 6 weeks. But I've lost weight and can fit in 2 pairs of shorts from last summer. Drinking more water than wine. So small successes. #BOTM

#BFCR2 Wk 5 check-in. Still on my 3rd book, I lost my momentum after I got back from vacation at the end of June. Average weeky 8k step goal, result 6k. No excuses but the life of a work at home techie makes it very hard. On a side note I've lost 11 lbs during this time period so I'm claiming success, lol.

#BookFitnessChallenge @wanderinglynn @crazyspine

It's been a hard week, back from vacation on Sun; book 2.25 of 6. Back to work on Mon. Got sun poisoning on my lips on vacay. Pain in such a small area but I actually felt very sick. My company was the only company in the US open on Friday, longest day ever, ugh.

Still reading my same book from Saturday. Step average around 6k goal was avg of 8k.

Good news Nine Perfect Stranger is good so far!

Hoopiefoot Ugh—Sun poisoning on your lips sounds terrible! Hope you start feeling better soon. 5mo

So excited for my first fitness challenge!

My reading goals are six books and an average of 8000 steps a day (I'll average them each week). I work at home some some days I'm lucky to get in 2000 steps so an average is my best bet. I'm on vacation this week so that will help with the reading goal.

Good luck to everyone on their goals!

@wanderinglynn @laurar311 @WriterAtHeart @jmtrivera @mc916 @Honeybeegirl @BookishBelle

Dawnrod1970 Good luck! This is my first challenge. I also work from home which definitely makes some days tougher getting the steps in. 5mo
Honeybeegirl Good luck! Even a full day of teaching (when school was in session) would leave me with about 6k so I would need to supplement with more activity! You got this!! 5mo

The Winter Sister was so good. I started it yesterday and finished it today.

When Slyvie was 13 her 17 year old sister went missing. Three days later she was found dead by strangulation. Slyvie's close relationship with her Mother fell apart after her sister's death. Sylvie left the area when she turned 18. Fast-forward 14 years and she's back home to tend to her dying mother. Will she find closure during the visit? #BOTM #sickday #wintermystery

Loved it! This is Claire Mackintosh's newest psychological thriller. Set around the Christmas holidays, new mother Anna searches for answers surrounding the suicides of both of her parents. Her mother committed suicide a year ago and her father 7 months before her mother. I really thought that I had it figured out but I was very wrong; which is good thing, I like to be surprised more than I like to be right. Great read!
