Was a good read. One of her better books.
YOU'VE COME A LONG WAY, BABY. Lippman has created an Everytomboy in Tess Monaghan: marriage-averse, sports-loving, and wise-cracking. And it's clear that in the 7 years since she started publishing the series, Lippman has come a long way. It used to be that Laura Lippman was the queen of product placement: why use descriptive prose when you can drop an obscure brandname, circa 1970s (e.g. Banlons & Barcaloungers)? She has toned that down in this book. Ref: pg 78
Highly recommended! This is my favorite Laura Lippman book with Tess Monaghan (very hard choice, as I am a big fan of all the Tess Monaghan books.) But I really like the character of Mark Rubin, and how he is hard-headed and practical (regarding his business) yet romantic and impractical about his wife, Natalie. For that matter, Natalie is also full of contradictions — or perhaps just caught between conflicting desires and options. I think the Jewish religions/traditions/culture are woven into the story in a really interesting way.
