Fall by Candice Fox is the third instalment in her series featuring detectives Eden Archer and Frank Bennett. Fox’s award-winning debut, Hades, published in January 2o14, achieved a myriad of acolades here in Australia. And rightly so.
Like sands through the hourglass, so are the days of our lives…. though only if those sands are on steroids cos the year continues to fly by and I keep hearing reports that people are already prepared for Christmas. #bahhumbug
I intend to remain in denial for as long as possible. (And yes, I realise that means avoiding stores, television and people in general!)
A lot of US bloggers share pics and reviews of what they call ‘cozy’ mysteries. I don’t fully understand the concept, but they seem to all feature illustrated / cartoon-like covers and appear kinda quaint.
I assume they’re a bit like my ‘comfort’ reads—easy reads that I know I can rely on to entertain me for a few hours with minimal macabre hangovers after you’ve turned the last page. A bit like watching Murder She Wrote, as opposed to Criminal Minds.
When I reviewed the first in this new series by Mary Higgins Clark and Alafair Burke I commented that I once very much enjoyed the former’s books and had (in more recent years) become a huge fan of the latter. As for the two combined…. what’s that saying about money you can take to the bank? #orsomething
I enjoyed their first joint venture, The Cinderella Murder, but think this latest, All Dressed in White, is actually better.
I’ve ditched my original intro. It was something inane about time flying and wondering when the fun starts. It hardly seems to matter at the moment, as I continue to (both) obsessively read and / or steadfastly avoid the reports coming out of Paris.
I said on my Debbish FB page I don’t quite know how to feel or what to do. Doing nothing is hard. Many of us are tired of feeling impotent.
And yet… life goes on. For the lucky ones.
