My book of the month: March

Have you ever postponed starting a new book because of the avalanche of rave reviews that you read? Maybe I subscribe to too many book review tweeters and bloggers? Maybe too many authors are heavy-handed with retweets?

That's something for me to ponder because it delayed my reading of Jane Harper's current novel, Force of Nature



Three pages in and I was hooked. That's important to me. 

There are way too many novels published for me to be able to read every one that I want. So it's important that a novel 'grab' me within the first couple of chapters otherwise I put it aside and move on to another book. Life's too short to force my way through stories I don't enjoy.

Force of Nature is a fabulous mystery. Five women go on a team-building corporate retreat and only four return. Each one of the four tells a slightly different account of what happened. What really did occur?

  1. Thanks for the tip. I've just reserved this with my local library. There are a few reserves ahead of me, which is good as I have a stack of books waiting for me on my bedside table :)

  2. I really enjoyed Jane's second book but not quite as much as her first, The Dry, which I loved.

    1. Yes, I enjoyed her first one, too. She writes so well about place, doesn't she?
