Year 7, Book 83

83. And When She Was Good by Laura Lippman
I am sure that there are many people who would love for Laura Lippman to go back to writing books in the Tess Monaghan series, but I am not one of them. I quickly grew bored of reading any of those. Those type of crime procedural thrillers do nothing for me. I have loved most of Lippman’s standalone novels though and this was another good one. The story centers around Heloise/Helen who is a suburban madame, running an upscale prostitution ring from her home in as much of a legitimate business way as possible. However, something from her past is haunting her and current issues are threatening to expose her secret and the life she is not sure she even wants anymore. It’s not my favorite Lippman book, but I quite enjoyed reading it. If you like her other books you should enjoy this one too. I give it a 7 out of 10.
