Telling Tales - Ann Cleeves

Honestly the Vera books drag a lot. She tends to come in on the second act.


The writing is very good, but the flow in these books is awful. I kept muttering hurry up after I got to the 50 percent point. I don't know if it just going from Vera and back to other people is the issue or what. Any scene she is in sparkles so i was happy to read those. Anytime she's not in a scene I just found myself not caring much. 


It was nice though that the tv series changed up things. So even if you watched the Vera series, enough is changed about the who and why that made this fun to read. 


I just don't know if I will continue with trying to finish these or not.
