When Will There be Good News by Kate Atkinson
Dr. Joanne Hunter's day didn't turn out as she planned either. Thirty years earlier her mother, sister and baby brother had been murdered by a stranger, and today she learned that the murderer was now out of jail.
Reggie's goal for the day was to meet with her tutor, have a small dinner and get in lots of studying. She did get two of three items accomplished before her world was turned on the end.
It didn't take many pages before I found myself captivated by Reggie. She had so many stumbling blocks in her road of life, but she continued to pick herself up and and push forward. Please Ms. Atkinson, don't leave me hanging, I need to know more about Reggie and how she fares in the future with her life and her studies. Will she meet up with Detective Chief Inspector Louise Monroe again, or will it be with Jackson Brodie himself.
This third Jackson Brodie novel kept me on the edge of my seat reading. I couldn't put it down till I knew that Reggie would be safe. Oh yeah, I did have concern about Jackson and Louise, but they are adults and I had to give them credit that they would land on their feet, though perhaps I should worry a bit more about Jackson.
