The Sisters of Blue Mountain by Karen Katchur: A Review
This really didn't read like a mystery for me. I would categorize it more as women's fiction than a true mystery. There are some questions that are raised in the book but it moved so slowly that it felt more like women's fiction or literary fiction. There were also not too many shockers in the book, either. The reader is kind of led to the answer to what the secret that Linnet and Myna have kept from the very beginning and there were a lot of hints dropped about who killed the professor. The characters were not that interesting, with the exception of Dr. Jenkins. He is such a likeable character and the only shocker in the end is who Dr. Jenkins is and what he really understands about the world. The story was an interesting one but the story just moved too slowly and the writing was not suspenseful enough to make me want to put this one on my list of favorite books. It is not a bad book, I was just a bid bored by it. I think it would be enjoyed by a reader who frequently reads women's fiction and some lighter, less suspenseful mysteries.
