Sarah Broadhurst's view...

Suburban murder in perfect (desperate?) housewife territory where our untypical mum and her chum solve the crime. Thatâs the centre but this is much more a story of friendship, relationship, dissatisfaction and family life. A tale of modern manners hung around a crime scene where revealing the murderer is less important to the reader than the entertaining characters.

Synopsis

Goodnight Nobody by Jennifer Weiner

For Kate Klein, semi-accidental mother of three, the unsolved murder of a fellow mother is the most interesting thing to happen since the neighbours cracked their septic tank. Up until then life in suburbia has been distinctly underwhelming. Her once-loving husband is hardly ever home. The supermums on the playground routinely snub her and her days are filled with an empty routine. At night, most of her orgasms are of the do-it-yourself variety.

So, on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays, when her kids are in nursery school, Kate launches a murder investigation of her own. With the help of her best friend, carpet heiress Janie Segal, and former flame, Evan McKenna, she is drawn deep into the dead woman's double life. Suddenly suburbia is not so ordinary after all. Engrossing, suspenseful, and laugh-out-loud funny, Goodnight Nobody is another unputdownable, sparkling tale; a quick-witted mystery with a great heart and a narrator you'll never forget.

My favourite thing about is the 'like for like' page this has really introduced me to some good reads! That and lots of honest reviews.

Sam Lewis

Lovereading recommends, honestly reviews and promotes books-what more can I say?!

Because of Lovereading I have broadened my reading horizons with some really great books that I probably would never have chosen myself.

Susan Walsh

The selections are so varied and the reader reviews are so helpful. A fantastic website for those who love books.

Ann Quintilla

For me, to read is to learn, to reflect, to escape, to think, to contemplate and my time for space and calm.

I love that Lovereading handpicks very special debut reads.
