Even though I thoroughly enjoyed reading the last two historical novels, back in May/June, I was ready for a change of pace and this book was just the ticket. END IN TEARS by Ruth Rendell.
The book was being handed back to its owner at my chat and sew group and I was asked if I wanted to read it......OK, why not.
Well, I couldn't put this one down......I just had to get to the end and find out who the killer was and why they did it meaning I finished reading it in about 5 days. That's a new record for me of late.
Rendell has a writing style that is sometimes difficult to follow and I had to reread some bits before it made sense to me. I was a bit disappointed by the conclusion as I found the motive a little bit weak, but apart from that I really enjoyed the pace of the story and I would read another Inspector Wexford mystery if I come across one. Have you read a Ruth Rendell Novel?
Now that I am reading again, what shall I read next?...........I can choose between Bernard Cornwall, Ken Follett, James Forrester or another Philipa Gregory.
ps. the crochet doily was made by my mum way back in her crocheting heyday. She never learned to read a crochet pattern so always used those diagrams that I find impossible to decipher.
