Learning to Swim – A Book Review

This book is the first effort of author Sara Henry, and if this book is any indication she needs to keep on writing! Very good book and it really didn’t turn out as I expected.

What I really liked about this book is that there weren’t many moments where you go “why did they do that? that was stupid” like you do with some mysteries. Doesn’t mean it isn’t a good book, but still. This book was just very realistic and you could say that you could see yourself reacting that way in that situation. I love how she would say “of course I wasn’t going to” in many situations. “Of course, I knew I should leave before I let my heart get broken…” “of course, I wasn’t going to”. You know you do that, you just know you do!

This was the April selection for my mystery book club.  Unfortunately I missed our meeting, but I had already purchased the book and it sounded interesting.  I am glad I read it, in fact I inhaled it over the course of 2 evenings.  Highly recommended.
