Just as I was talking about what a shamelessly promiscuous reader I had reverted back to being, something happened. I started reading The Likeness, by Tana French, and all of a sudden I’m in a relationship, and just absolutely loving this book. I mean, love! Talk about being drawn into the story. I tried to cheat a little but I kept wanting to get back to Cassie and all the people that she has met while undercover in the life of Lexie Madison. This book has got it all. There is the murder to be solved, wondering about the affect that being undercover will have on her relationship with Sam and even if Sam is the right man for her, and then there are her fellow grad students. The part where she is undercover is reminding me of The Secret History, by Donna Tartt with the aloof and exclusive outsider clique happening, and you you just wonder about all the secrets that they are hiding. Tana French is at the top of her game with this second book. Now, back to my book!
What’s the most engrossing mystery you’ve ever read?
