This week's book is Whale of a Crime by Karen MacInerney.
This is the seventh in the Gray Whale Inn series, and it was the first book in the series in a couple of years. It was so wonderful to be back!
Being set on an island off the coast of Maine, it's no surprise the book starts off with a sailing reference.
"Red sky in morning, sailor's warning." I'd heard it a thousand times, but as I stood staring out at the cloudless sky suspended like a blue bowl over the Gulf of Maine, I reflected that the day had turned out perfectly after all.
Boy, was I wrong.
Page 56 finds us witnessing a fight between Natalie, our main character, and her sister Bridget about Bridget's grown daughter Gwen.
Bridget said, "That's why I've decided Gwen's coming back to California with me."
I looked up from the chocolate-chip-studded batter. "What?"
"I'm taking Gwen home with me," she said.
"Have you talked to her about that?"
To find out the answer, you'll have to read the book. I do have a review coming up on Tuesday, so I hope you'll come back and take a look then.
