The next book shall be....

Tigers in Red Weather by Lisa Klausmann.

For those already reading The Crimson Petal and the White, never fear, that's the book after!

Here is a brief description of Tigers, as if a well known shopping site were trying to sell you the book:

Nick and her cousin, Helena, have grown up sharing sultry summers at Tiger House, the glorious old family estate on the island of Martha’s Vineyard. As World War II ends they are on the cusp of adulthood, the world seeming to offer itself up to them. Helena is leaving for Hollywood and a new marriage, while Nick is to be reunited with her young husband Hughes, due to return from London and the war. Everything is about to change. Neither quite finds the life she had imagined, and as the years pass, the trips to Tiger House take on a new complexity. Then, on the brink of the 1960s, Nick’s daughter Daisy and Helena’s son Ed make a sinister discovery. It plunges the island’s bright heat into private shadow and sends a depth-charge to the heart of the family. Summer seemed to arrive at that moment, with its mysterious mixture of salt, cold flesh and fuel. Magnificently told from five perspectives, Tigers in Red Weather is an unforgettable début: a simmering novel of passion, betrayal and secret violence beneath a polished and fragile façade.

    Underwhelmed by the book, I'm afraid. Dislikable characters muddling through badly without introspection, and the suspense of having Ed wander on stage at the last minute and explain everything felt like an authorial cheat. Better luck next time, I guess!

    Found the book slightly disappointing after reading all good reviews - the characters and the reasons for their behaviours could have been described in more depth. It wasn't until the last chapter that it started becoming interesting, but that's where the story ended...
