Since I am spending a lot of time pumping at work... alone in the conference room... without a computer to play around on the internet... I have been reading quite a bit more. My latest book was The Murderer's Daughters byRandy Susan Meyers.
The book started off kinda slow but then got interesting for a bit and ended on an okay note. I was not sucked into this book nor did it require a lot of thought. Just a nice easy read.
According to goodreads... Lulu and Merry’s childhood was never ideal, but on the day before Lulu’s tenth birthday their father drives them into a nightmare. He’s always hungered for the love of the girl’s self-obsessed mother; after she throws him out, their troubles turn deadly.
Lulu’s mother warned her to never let him in, but when he shows up, he’s impossible to ignore. He bullies his way past ten-year-old Lulu, who obeys her father’s instructions to open the door, then listens in horror as her parents struggle. She runs for help and discovers upon her return that he’s murdered her mother, stabbed her sister, and tried to kill himself.
For thirty years, the sisters try to make sense of what happened. Their imprisoned father is a specter in both their lives, shadowing every choice they make. Though one spends her life pretending he’s dead, while the other feels compelled to help him, both fear that someday their imprisoned father’s attempts to win parole may meet success.
Overall it was an easy read and a decent book.
