That was me …this morning!
Laying in bed, finishing up the last chapters of a good book!..
..can’t say that was a bad start to the day… (except the postman interrupted the final scene…cliff tops at night, the murderer revealed, by ringing at the door- ensuing I flew around flinging on clothes and getting dressed in about 2 minutes flat!)
Anyway… It was the first book of a series, and I loved the second half, the first was a little slow for me and I must admit I am not into tool talk and had selected a mystery called the Fixer Upper series, but ..the cover was great 🙂
Anyway I have to say the book picked up pace and the characters were interesting,-towards the end it became a 4 star read to me… the only thing missing was I WORKED OUT WHODUNIT!
I am not a fan of this happening, I feel I SHOULDN’T be able to work it out, even if the clues are not reveled so really we CAN’T work it out that’s fine-I want to be SURPRISED, okay I am feeling a little clever to have it sussed but it was a bit obvious when it got nearer to the end.
Does working out the murderer of the mystery book feel a personal achievement to you or a disappointment? I found myself wanting to be proved wrong but knew I wasn’t as you find once you know it all becomes clear.
However I can still recommend this book fully as a good read and I am keen to read book two so the author pulled it out of the bag – or the PINK TOOL KIT in this case…
Would love to hear your views…. Have a good week all…..
