Another Thing To Fall..

Of course, the day after I post a blog about being too busy because my child won't take a morning nap, she wakes up at 7 am and then takes a morning nap.  Woot.

Another Thing to Fall is the 10th book in the Tess Monaghan series by Laura Lippman.

A tv show is filming in Baltimore and Tess gets hired to watch the bratty star, Selene Waites after a series of accidents/fires have happened on set. 

Tess learns some film trade secrets and becomes disillusioned by the industry, while Lloyd gets an unpaid-intern gig and falls in love with the industry.

Tess of course can't JUST watch Selene, she needs to know who / what is behind the fires on set.  There is the usual community members pissed because they aren't being utilized by the production company and the usual, get out of my neighborhood groups, but who could really not want Mann of Steel to succeed?

I of course, was a fan of yet another one of Lippman's books about Monaghan, the private investigator who started out just having a lot of dumb luck and has sense gotten better.  However, I'm not sure if I missed a few key details because I only read this while pumping or if it was supposed to be inferred or I was just not paying close enough attention because there were a few explanations at the end of the book that I was like huh? And I am not a fan of when parts of the mystery aren't shared with the reader but then the character shares stuff and that connects the dots.  If that makes sense.

I'm kind of sad that I am almost all caught up on her series.  I guess I will have to find a new one soon!!

And I do apologize.. the poll for October's Group Read is going up today through Tuesday, sorry it will be delayed this month!!

And.. what series should I pick up next?
