Current crime fiction read!
Bumping this up my TBR list in honor of the newest Nobel Laureate.
After watching Netflix‘s limited series “Unbelievable”, I was craving a murder mystery. This book hit the spot! Reminiscent of Law & Order‘s SVU, the book centers on the murder of Zombie Doe 🧟♀️ , this girl so mutilated, they don‘t know how else to describe her. There‘s been 8 murders in the last year, all on holidays. Zombie Doe shows up on New Years Eve, they‘re trying to find the connections and the identity of the girl. SO GOOD 😊
Another book club book 📚 sooo there‘s been so much hype about this particular novel, and I was all set to be blown away. Sadly, I was not. As a coming of age novel, it was good. The murder aspect fell a little flat for me. The end of the book, I still have questions. Also, this is my fault but I could not stop comparing the Southern speak to that of “The Help” - one of my all time favorites. This was a good book, but not my favorite.
Started on this yesterday and am already 125 pages in. Been meaning to read this for so long and am now suitably creeped out by it and guessing that feeling will last until I finish!!
This is one of my favorite historical mystery series. It‘s dark, gritty, and deadly. Jem works as an apothecary and helps solve crimes on his own.
