Weak Flesh by Jo Robertson
Thoughts Before Reading:
I got this book for free off BookBub and thought it would be this really interesting mystery.
The book is set in 1901. Pretty, voluptuous Nell Carver has no want for attention and is involved with many men.
One of them has murdered her and left her body in the Pasquotank River.
Marshal Tucker Gage is trying to solve the case, with the unwanted help of Nell’s best friend, and the girl he is very attracted to, Megan Bailey.
Thoughts After Reading:
Turns out I was wrong.
It started off strong, but then just turned into a “bodice ripping” romance novel. The mystery was really interesting until it was totally obvious who the killer was.
Not my cup of tea at all and I wish I hadn’t wasted time reading it.
