I too enjoyed the first read and was into the 2nd thinking I would order the book, until I came to the part about the facial features. I didn't think there were people who still belived this. A straight nose indicates a perfectionist? Deep set brown eyes= family loving? So the features we are born with determine if we are talkative etc. I guess we are doomed from the start then. I think I'll pass on this one
Okay, the things we don't know yet -- how did she get the blood on her - went back to get the key to the desk she bought yesterday - but no explanation yet as to how she came in close enough proxemity to the woman to get her blood on her - ? - the key itself - think that is the "key" to this mystery - my opinion - probably completely off base - will probably find out some of that info when the "chief" questions her - instant dislike for one another - so they will probably end up in a romantic entaglement -
The "face reading" - ? - that won't keep me from reading more - don't think it would hold up in court as a character analysis tho' - probably just used as a way to describe her - maybe not the best way - but won't write the author off my list because of it - or the chief either -
Well - that's my "analysis" of where we are so far - did I overlook something that you noticed and I did not - ? - Doris -
Well 7 in favor of it and only three in question I say it is very interesting and I do want to finish it.
Lots of questions to be answered but that is the whole
idea of a good mystery. I am at the library every week so will look for it there id it isnt I'll buy it for sure thanks to all of you makes it so much more interesting!!
I liked this book. The writing style is easy to read, yet interesting. The story flows nicely from one section to the next. The characters are believable. At first I thought the cop, Randall, was going to be a 'bully cop cliche' but he doesn't seem to be after reading further.
I like how you know what Molly and Randall are thinking. I think it always makes a book more interesting than gleening what the character is thinking by only having conversations between the characters to make that determination.
