Well, it’s a perfect fall day, for which I’m truly thankful, as I’ve got time this afternoon for a long walk. I’ve got laundry hanging outside in the sun to dry and a delicious homemade muffin with rhubarb from my garden to enjoy with my steaming cup of Pu-Erh tea. And this is another post on a Monday… I think Monday is the new Sunday!
This post will be super short, as I have a kitty lying on one arm, making it very difficult to type. Last night I finished Canadian author Joy Fielding’s recent domestic thriller, The Housekeeper, which I thought was OK, but not as riveting and “page-turner-worthy” as I’d hoped. Adult daughter Jodi hires Elyse Woodley to work as a housekeeper for her elderly father and invalid mother, and at first she seems too good to be true. Unfortunately, we all know the truth about things that seem too good to be true, so when things begin to go wrong, we know where the story is headed. There were few surprises in this book, and I found most of the characters, while credible, to be either very disagreeable or very unlikable… but that’s just my opinion. As a thriller, it ticks all the boxes, and I can see why she’s a bestselling author. It was a “Canadian Tire” book, but if you’re in the mood for a domestic thriller, especially one highlighting many parts of Toronto, you could do worse than this one.
That’s all for today. Have a Wonderful Thanksgiving!
Bye for now... Julie
