Sunday Salon

Well the week has once again flown by, and it'll be Monday in a few hours.  This week I finally finished
A little more graphic than I usually read, but very good, a page turner indeed.  I sat in Macdonald's (without eating anything) to finish the last chapter, it was raining outside.   A great recommendation by Nise from Under the Boardwalk.  
If you are the least bit squeemish, don't read this one.  I had no idea there was such ugliness in the world, I thought for sure I'd read it all, but after The Devils Punch Bowl, this one takes the cake.  I can't imagine how much therapy these people will need.

here is a description from amazon.ca

More than twenty years ago, Claire and Lydia’s teenaged sister Julia vanished without a trace. The two women have not spoken since, and now their lives could not be more different. Claire is the glamorous trophy wife of an Atlanta millionaire. Lydia, a single mother, dates an ex-con and struggles to make ends meet. But neither has recovered from the horror and heartbreak of their shared loss—a devastating wound that's cruelly ripped open when Claire's husband is killed.

The disappearance of a teenage girl and the murder of a middle-aged man, almost a quarter-century apart: what could connect them? Forming a wary truce, the surviving sisters look to the past to find the truth, unearthing the secrets that destroyed their family all those years ago . . . and uncovering the possibility of redemption, and revenge, where they least expect it.



Happy Reading, and Happy Sunday Salon.

sounds sad. I read too much non-fiction so lack time for fiction. I know I should make time, but too much furniture to paint! Happy Sunday to you.

I loved this book. Graphic and gritty but worth every page if you like that sort of thriller. It should be book of the year!

That sounds most interesting, dear Irene. I do love a good mystery. xoxo

I've been in a reading slump.  I swore in this 150th celebration of Canadian confederacy I would only read Canadian authors.  And I h...
