(120) Fragile by Lisa Unger

I love small town mysteries. The kind of charming little "picturesque" town where everybody knows everybody and their histories are intertwined.

Fragile is just that kind of mystery. Jones and Maggie Cooper have lived in The Hollows their whole lives. They are raising their teenage son there, Maggie is a psychiatrist and Jones is on the Police force. They are awakened in the middle of the night by the mother of their son's girlfriend. She has gone missing. Jones & Maggie frantically try to find the girl and keep their son safe from the accusations that they know are coming.

I really like Lisa Unger's style of writing. She pulls her readers into the story and make them feel part of the story, keeping us on edge without causing heart failure. A great mystery without getting to gritty or gory. A bit unusual to find such a story in a genre full of high body counts.

You ladies will have to let me know what you think after you have read the book.

Why I Read...

I remember the carefree summer days when I used to ride my bike to the public library to pick out new books. I would go almost daily to find books to read. I read to learn. I read to explore the world. I read to escape. I read because not reading is not an option.
