This is book number 3 in my TBR Challenge. Why did I love it? I loved how I was pulled into the story. I felt her pain and her grief. I went along with her on her journey of discovery and saw how the discoveries affected her. Even though she wanted life to stop she was forced to continue to face her pain and discoveries. After reading this book one wonders does one ever know the people they love.

Reiko is Sano's new bride. She is not the traditional Japanese wife that is found in the 1600s Japan. As the only child of a widowed magistrate, she was allowed to watch his court cases. She was trained in the ways of the Samurai warrior. She is not the docile wife Sano expected. Reiko helps with the investigation even though Sano tells her no. He is furious when he finds out.
Can Sano solve the murder and work things out with Reiko?
When I started to read this book, I was not sure if I would like it. But I kept going and the book became better. This is not your traditional mystery. This mystery does not get solved quickly. There is a lot of twist and turns in this book. I thought I figured out who committed the murder but Rowland there in some twist and it was not who I thought. This is definitely a thinker mystery. If you like mysteries then you will like this book. Enjoy.

I found The Poisonwood Bible difficult to get into at the beginning. I believe that it was due to the writing style of the author. I either became use to the style or the story became to enthralling to put the book down. After the first 100 pages the book became easier. The further I got in the book, I wanted to know more about the characters
Overall, I found the book a good read. I would definitely recommend it.

This book is part of series about a cat detective. This is the first one that I read in the series. It is about Molly whose sister is murdered and her niece has disappeared. Not believing that her niece is dead as the local police state; she hires Familiar to find here niece. Molly goes to the local jail to interview the man who is accused of killing Molly's sister Anna in the hopes that he will help find her niece. He states that he did not kill Anna and that he wants to help find the person who did.
I found that this book started out slow. I kept plugging away. It became better about half way through. If you are patient this is nice light read. I do want to read the other books in this series, so that says something about this book.
