    Mystery? Murder? Crime?

    Familiar Strangers by Jackie Walsh Digging in the dirt and digging for dirt...that is pretty much what anchors this story of a woman who seems a bit lost while she deals with the slow death her mother faces dealing with Alzheimer’s Disease. It wasn’t easy liking Rebecca due to the choices she made throughout the story – choices that to me were destructive but also perhaps a cry for help. There is not enough about her life “before” to really know why she is in the jobs she has or why she has made the questionable choices she has made. She has an ill mother, aging father, brother and pregnant sister-in-law but no real friends or goals or aspirations that I could ascertain. When she is approached by the police about a missing woman she wonders why. She wonders even more when the woman turns up dead and the police are still asking questions. The mystery of who Katie Collins is and why someone would want to kill her is what Rebecca begins to focus on. The question of motivation and all the rest is eventually sussed out but in the end Rebecca still remains a bit of an amorphous character to me and I wonder just what she will choose to do with her life in the future. What I liked: * Not really knowing till near the end who the killer was * The plotting and pace * The feeling of mystery and darkness * Jeff – although I am not sure why he became involved in helping Rebecca What I didn’t like: What I was supposed not to like...and that is as it should be What I wondered about at the end: * Rebecca – would have liked to know her better * Where both Rebecca’s and Katie’s mothers were and why they were such lax parents * And...a few other things Did I enjoy this book? Yes Would I read more by this author? Yes Thank you to NetGalley, Hera and BOTSB for the ARC – This is my honest review. 4 Stars
