This Was So Good!!!

I loved this book!!! But I have been in a mystery loving craving kind of mood lately. I think that if I am a bit restless I turn to my stash of really amazing mysteries.

This one literally has everything...a quirky dysfunctional psychiatrist, tons of dysfunctional characters, a stolen child and twenty years later a second stolen child with connections to the first unsolved case.


I can't even count the number of flawed intense characters encountered in this novel...it was awesome!!!
The ending...quite unbelievable...and...this book is the first of a series!!!

If you love Elizabeth George, Deborah Crombie, Carol O'Connell and Val McDermid novels...you will love this book. Toss Ellie Griffith in that mix, too...these books are mysteries with that quirky fun flawed character bonus.

Lately the mysteries that I love revolve around strong yet offbeat women as their central characters.

Delicious stuff..far more intense than a cozy mystery...

Even Alan Bradley's Flavia de Luce...next on my list...is a quirky flawed heroine...

I am saving this one for a restless rainy day.

  1. Okay, I must be losing it. I swear I clicked through and commented on this already and it showed up in my reader again! I need to get back to some mysteries.

    1. You did...this post keeps reappearing...sorry!!.,

  2. This one looks great as well....
    What do you do with your books once you've read them?

    1. I usually bundle them off to family...this one was an egalley from NetGalley so I just delete it from my iPad....

      That is called virtual recycling...lol...

  3. Blue Monday sounds and looks amazing. The cover is cool! I love a good mystery and from your review this book delivers. I have added it to my list and can't wait to read it!! I am Half-Sick of Shadows looks interesting, too! Happy reading!

  4. Stephanie...you have to read the Alan Bradley books starring Flavia deLuce...she is a quirky little girl who gets herself in the middle of mysteries...it is a wonderful series...but you have to read them in order...

  5. Blue Monday sounds good. I've been reading a lot of mysteries lately, too.
