Mum on the Run & And Justice There is None

I spent a lovely evening reading these two, different but both very good reads.

Mum on the Run I bought after reading another book by Fiona Gibson that I really enjoyed, The Bookshop on Rosemary Lane.    The catalyst for this story is the Mum’s Run at a child’s school day.  Laura has a disappointing, to put it mildly, result.  This makes her reevaluate her life and her fitness level.  It doesn’t help that her husband seems to be a little too cozy with a co-worker.  The story follows Laura and Jed, her husband, and this rocky patch in their lives.  It turns out that neither is totally the good guy or the bad guy, just like in real life.  Nice developed characters and story line in this engaging quick read!

And Justice There is None, is Book 8 in the Duncan Kincaid & Gemma James series.  Well written mystery with lots of shady characters and twists and turns.  Some switching back and forth from past to present to make the all the connections between the crimes and the killer(s).  The plot is very well done and it was not until close to the end that I solved it for sure.  The romantic/family life of Duncan and Gemma takes several steps forward during this book and is a well developed subplot.  It becomes intertwined with the mystery but still has a life of its own.  I am really enjoying watching Duncan and Gemma come together over the course of several books and I look forward to reading more!
