Friday Books - Sunday Morning Coming Down

For BookBeginnings, hosted by Rose City Reader and the Friday 56, hosted by Freda's Voice this week, I'm featuring...



(Click the cover for the Goodreads blurb)



Number 7 in the series by authors Nicci Gerrard and Sean French, in this one psychotherapist Dr Frieda Klein once again finds herself in the midst of a criminal investigation when the rotting body of an ex-policeman is found beneath the floorboards of her house.


Here's My Beginning..


Not that impressive a start, in my opinion. In fact, it took me more than the first 100 pages to really get into this - which is unusual for me. Give me a murder with a body, and I'm hooked. This had a slow and less than gripping start, but after that it moved well, and I enjoyed it.

I enjoyed all the cops conversations, they were well written. In this excerpt, they're having to go through Frieda's mail (who gets snail mail these days?), and sure enough, there's something there...not ticking but definitely linked to the murder...

I've just finished this, not a bad read, but I've read better - my review should be up soon.

What are you reading this weekend?

Ahh, this sounds great! I'm always looking for mystery books with murder in them... Hehehe. I'd love to check your review on this book! :)

If my mail started ticking I'd run too. LOL Sounds good. Glad the story picked up and you enjoyed it.

Have you read the previous books in the series? I was hooked early on, as I love Frieda Klein.

Thanks for sharing, and for visiting my blog.

I've never read a book by this duo writing team, but I have good things about their work. I am sorry this one wasn't better for you. Someday I may give them a try myself--maybe a different book. Have a great weekend!

I disagree, I kind of chuckled a bit. I suppose some of us have darker humor than others. Hope you enjoy your weekend!
