Fear of Drowning by Peter Turnbull is the first in a series featuring Detective Inspector George Hennessey. In this one, a shocking – to the community – double murder results in the police coming up with two pretty obvious suspects, and as the investigation continues both of them look more and more likely for it, but we readers know there will be at least one twist. At the halfway point, I’m waiting for it.
The library book is The Girl Who Drank the Moon by Kelly Barnhill (author of the award-winning The Witch’s Boy). This one is aimed at “young readers” as opposed, I suppose, to YA, and sure enough, it’s something I would have liked pretty well at age 8 or so. Well written, but the story not quite interesting enough for me, even as an enjoyer of the occasional YA novel. Would be great for your grade schooler, though.
Barbara is still reading The Family Plot, by Cherie Priest, which is going slowly due to a lot of time spent on other activities, mostly quilt making. She’ll finish it (the book, not the quilt) this week.
Waiting to be read is Blood Wedding by Pierre Lemaitre. author of the The Commandant Camille Verhoeven Trilogy, Alex, Irene and Camille.
