Lots of times I read my friends’ books and it’s a way of staying in touch with them or getting to know them better. My writing buddies are all Canadian so often
I enjoy a fairly local setting too. Here I’m reading That Summer in Franklin by Linda Hutsell-Manning. Franklin seems a shoe-in for Cobourg where Linda really lives (and so does my brother).
The two main characters are struggling with failing aging parents, one a father and one a mother. I can identify with that. They both share a history that involves a death in a hotel during their summer job.
Three-quarters of the way through…must read on to find out what happens or happened in the case of that murder.
