    Honey Dew PDF º Paperback honey epub, Honey Dew eBooka very surprising mystery it seems like just a light old fashioned english village mystery But it kind of isn't It's an easy read very understated She PERFECTLY describes what it's like working at a weekly newspaper She describes dysfunctional families and aren't they all with frightening accuracy without making the story creepy or disturbing And then there is this murder which is just very uiet It's not gory — or uaint It really isn't even ever solved; it just kind of ends It leaves you feeling sort of thoughtful and contemplative which is I guess the way you SHOULD feel after reading about a family tragedy And she asks an interesting uestion without asking the uestion in so many words why do some children come out of difficult families without any problems but others flip out

    Honey Dew PDF º Paperback honey epub, Honey Dew eBookBack of the book blurbs refer to this book as darkly comic but the comic aspect eluded me as did the relevance of the titleWhile this is in the murder mystery genre it becomes clear who done it early in the book Instead the real focus is on the family of the couple killed the next door neighbour and reporter Alisonand a few other characters The book is engaging in its compelling look at families at moral dilemmas and at the potential evil that lurks in all of us The book is a uick and easy read at 173 pages but I found myself wanting depth It was a good read but not totally satisfying JA

    Honey Dew PDF º Paperback honey epub, Honey Dew eBookHoney Dew Anything can happen behind closed doorsBut nothing doesIn an article the author states that her novels are entirely plot driven but that is not true for this story There is almost no plot to speak of we spend so much time getting to know the characters that by the time we get around to the plot it has already reached it's climax and the story is overAll of the characters seem to think they are the most special important person too big for the small village life they are subjected to yet I found each of them eually unlikeable The main

    Honey Dew PDF º Paperback honey epub, Honey Dew eBookA dark little tale presented as a murder mystery in the English countryside but really it is less about the murders and about the darkness in ordinary people's lives Everyone seems to have the potential for malice and violence whether they know it or not Doughty creates great discomfort by small means The image of the sleepwalking Alison as observed by her elderly neighbour with pure evil in her eyes is particularly chilling A
