While this book filled my craving for a good mystery read, it isn't going on my list favorites because the ending seemed like it was going to be a big reveal but I felt a bit let down. It was a surprise, but maybe for surprise's sake? All the same I will try more of Lippman's books in the future.
If you can't tell from my other reviews I really like this series. I want to be Tess Monaghan in my reincarnation!
Laura Lippman is always a good read!
Let's make this brief Author Laura Lippman leaves her beloved Baltimore for a trip to San Antonio (taking her Tess Monaghan character with her). There was some fish out of water stuff, but a lot of the comparisons actually involved consideration as to how similar the two cities were under the skin.
This is my favorite of the (first) 4 books in the series that I have read to date. I loved the setting, the characterizations, and the fact that Lippman managed to fool me until the climax!
RATING: 5 stars.
Great Book! Love this series!
This is another in the series of Tess Monaghan, but takes her "on the road" to Texas. Very interesting premise and good resolution.
