Kel McGowan is Kelligrafie
Slightly ahead with my reading challenge but I'm deliberately trying to get a bit extra in now cos I know I might fall behind come the McFly tour at the beginning of May.
This week I'm reviewing Broken English by P. L. Gaus, described on the cover as 'an Amish country mystery'. Comes across as being a bit niche in that respect but really, it makes absolutely no difference to the story.
It's a light murder mystery. If you like watching Diagnosis Murder on TV (the one with Dick Van Dyke) then you'll probably like this. It's very similar in that there's a mystery/murder solving professor.
It's one of those ridiculously inaccurate stories where the local police rely on some Joe Bloggs who just happens to have excellent detective skills in a town in the middle of nowhere. Bit hard to swallow as far as realistic goes.
If you don't want anything challenging (you won't be surprised when you find out who the villain is) then this would easily make a train journey go quicker. The chapters are short so you can read it in chunks if need be.
But not exactly the most dramatic crime novel in the world. If you're looking for gangsters and lesbians - look elsewhere.
For the remainder of this week I'm looking at Tea On The Blue Sofa by Natasha IllumBerg and next week I'm on Faith In The Face Of Death by Ken A Gauthier
