Happy Friday, all! And happy last weekend of August. It’s very hard to believe that next week will be September already….
I started the week with Now You See Them, the fifth book in Elly Griffiths’s Brighton Mysteries, which rather surprised me by jumping ahead to ten years later, to the mid 1960s, where the atmosphere changes considerably from the post-war world of the first few books. This is a group of people struggling with the next phase in their lives, with what happens once you’re settled and have kids– but aren’t quite where you want to be. I’m curious to see where the next book goes, since this marked a very distinct shift, both in time period and tone.
From there, it was on to Megan Miranda’s latest, Such a Quiet Place, about what happens when a close-knit– or seemingly close-knit– group of people is unsettled by a tragedy in their midst. What happens when one of your neighbors might be a cold-blooded murderer? And, even worse, when it might not be the person you thought it was?
What have you been reading this week?
