Books & Chocolate

I love to read just about anything, as long as it's fiction. I read for me - that means I read what I want, when I want. My reviews tend to mostly be based on how I'm able to personally connect with the story/characters. They are not intended to influence someone to read, or not read, a particular book. I always encourage people to take a chance and make up your own mind.


Oh, and I love chocolate.

Faithful Place

Faithful Place - Tana French

This is the third book in the Dublin Murder Squad series. In this book we have Frank who tries to solve the murder of his high school sweetheart, Rosie. Along the way, we are introduced to his very dysfunctional family. I enjoyed the way this story gave an adult character an opportunity to grow and mature in many ways. I had figured out who had murdered Rosie very early on, but I was OK with that. It didn't ruin my enjoyment of following along with Frank to see how he would arrive at the same conclusion, and then what he would do once he got there. My only real criticism is pretty much the same as the others -- it felt way too long. I'm not sure if it's the pacing of these books or what. For now it's not detering me, but I'm afraid as I progress in the books it will start to turn me off the series. We'll see. On to book #4.
