My second Covid pandemic book! And this one was really good. Oliver and Ciara live in Ireland and decide to live together, just days after meeting, really, in order to keep their fledgling relationship going. The book goes back and forth in multiple timelines, so it was fun keeping track of whose voice I was hearing and from when. It wasn't ever so complicated, though, that I had to go back and reread anything. The main characters were all likable. I liked Detective Inspector Lee from the get-go. I wouldn't mind reading more of her adventures in policing. It was a little annoying, at first, that the case wasn't solved, but I ended up liking it more that way, knowing Lee isn't letting it go, even though she doesn't have any hard evidence to proceed.

No one even knew they were together. Now one of them is dead.
56 DAYS AGO
Ciara and Oliver meet in a supermarket queue in Dublin and start dating the same week COVID-19 reaches Irish shores.

35 DAYS AGO
When lockdown threatens to keep them apart, Oliver suggests they move in together. Ciara sees a unique opportunity for a relationship to flourish without the scrutiny of family and friends. Oliver sees a chance to hide who - and what - he really is.

TODAY
Detectives arrive at Oliver's apartment to discover a decomposing body inside.
Quoted from Amazon

This synopsis above is what drew me in and I can say I was not disappointed. As with most mysteries there is that twist where you see how it will be played out but I can honestly say, I didn't see this one.

Then, there is another twist and surprise to the story which I though was brilliantly woven in. What you'll find early on is both Oliver and Ciara have secrets. The revelations are slowly introduced and my guesses for each secret was way off base.

When I first started reading it appeared it would be chick lit with budding romance and a simple mystery inserted. The interactions of Oliver and Ciara are a bit stilted at first but as the reader knows they have something to hide, it's understandable. Not chick lit or romance at all.

The storylines will change back and forth to the police investigation in present time then back to 56 days ago when Oliver and Ciara met, then move to 35 days ago as they are living together. The perspectives and narrator changes as well. You'll hear Ciara's side of things, Oliver's side and the detectives.

The author Catherine Ryan Howard is a crime writer from Cork Ireland and wrote this novel during the lockdown. ( )

Well, I bought the hype. Read a 3 sentence gushing mini recommendation of "a great summer read", "the tension builds", blah, blah, blah. First off, it's Flashback City, forward, backward....sometimes it even fashes back to today. Sometimes flashbacks work beautifully for me. Not this time. Especially, when they repeated Oliver and Ciara's not-so-cute-meet in the grocery store. Then there's our girl-boy cop team; they're not very cute either, even when being a smidge flirty. So, four main characters, don't care for any of them.

There's a body. We're not even sure if there's a murder. There's no evidence of anything and it takes the cops a while to put it togehter but they don't seem to be certain it's murder. Nor if they can sell their theory to the super. (Yawn). There was a killing some years ago, the criminals were caught and convicted and imprisoned. Oh, did I mention all this gets revealed with an amazing lack of tension. At about 50%, you realize you've got a clunker in hand. Finish it or cut your losses? I made the wrong decision and read every last boring word, based on all the hype that sucked me earlier and the galaxy of stars from Amazon readers. Ugh, who can I trust these days??? Not recommended. ( )

I had read reviews of this novel, warning that it was set during and based on the circumstances of the first Covid lockdown and that it might be 'too soon' for some readers. I would echo that -it was a strange read and somehow a bit close to home (not that I moved in with a man I barely knew during the first lockdown and no one has died in my home).

So Ciara moves in with Oliver when Covid hits Dublin because forming a household is the only way they can go on seeing each other, since Oliver is a strict rule follower. A few weeks later a decomposing body is discovered in his apartment. This is not a spoiler - the time line jumps around all over the place, so we know this from the beginning. I enjoyed the 'Today' sections and the banter between the police officers Lee and Karl. The chapters from the perspectives of Oliver and Ciara allowed secrets to be slowly revealed, but the broad strokes of what was going on became clear to me quite early on. Although there was a bit of a twist at the end, it was a little underwhelming and the overlapping of perspectives led to an increasing amount of repetition.

I prefer other novels by this author. ( )
