Current read September 16, 2022

No new books today, and I’m OK with it. I’m thinking you may be as well, after the monstrous pile we had yesterday.

I’ve been reading some today but time has been limited with other things going on.

It’s a bit of a conundrum, trying to decide about this current read. The story line is good but the interaction between characters is quite unsettling. The main characters are planning a wedding, lead busy lives, and have constant contact with co-workers and friends. It seems like there are always unfulfilled needs for time alone, but along with that there doubts in my mind about the strength of their relationship. Maybe that’s by design or maybe it’s just weak thought processes in these two. I’m thinking I will be skipping through the chapters to alleviate some of the frustration. There are definitely unresolved issues on both sides and I’m not sure they are aware of them.

Fort Point (Maine Justice Book 2) 

An ill-fated class reunion at Fort Point. . . Maine’s most famous author is murdered the night after the reunion. A classmate turns up dead a few days later, apparently drowned at Fort Point. What does a cold case burglary have to do with the deaths? And did a third classmate really commit suicide? The Priority Unit solves its most challenging case, relying on wits, hard work, and faith. Meanwhile, Jennifer Wainthrop plans her wedding but manages to hand the detectives some important clues. Detective Harvey Larson is offered a job he doesn’t want, until he learns the police chief has had a tragic accident. Captain Mike Browning is on vacation in Maine’s far north, and proves a difficult man to track down. Harvey and Jennifer continue their faith journey and romance while untangling the evidence. Despite many obstacles, the Priority Unit is once again serving up Maine Justice.

Reading this blurb, I’m not so sure the relational tension is planned. It could be character development that is to blame. I’m not very far into the book so I will have to keep reading to find out.

How are things at your house?

It is raining here once again. Lots of thunder and lightning last night. We have had more than our fair share of rain this year but at least we don’t have to water much. I love that part.

It’s Friday and a good day to stay inside and read. Besides, the day is almost over. There is little need to feel guilty even though I sort of do. I’ll finish a couple of tasks and that will help.

Happy Reading at your house.

Later.
