Waiting For Wednesday, Nicci French

Waiting For Wednesday opening line: There was no sign of anything wrong.

Waiting For Wednesday
Waiting For Wednesday

As part of my monthly pick from Penguin, I chose Waiting For Wednesday as the book blurb sounded like it would be interesting. It is a murder mystery and this is the first type of book I choose to read.

This is not a book I can recommend. It was so disjointed and I am not sure if this has anything to do with the fact that you have to read the book previous to this, or if it is the writing. It is a murder story set alongside another murder mystery. It involves the police, a psychotherapist and a journalist. The two stories intertwine but it took me longer than usual to read and I could not get into the book. The only reason I finished reading the book was to ensure I could write my review.

First published in Great British in 2013 by the Penguin Group.

ISBN 978-0-718-15697-8.

Paperback. 499 pages.

Disclosure: I was sent the book to review by Penguin Books South Africa. I was not required to write a positive review. This post is in line with my blogging policy.

  3. I never fancy this type of book. I prefer a bit of fluff. Woman-ditches-in-job-and-takes-up-life-in-country-running-a-farm-shop type of stories 😉

  7. Murder mysteries are tough to keep up with if they are good, when they are bad, you have to wonder why in the world they were published!
