This story takes place mostly right at the week of Christmas so I saw that and decided to read it now. I like Crombie well enough – I read her Thanksgiving book – but she’s not anywhere near a favorite. Her series is about a detective team who go through their own relationship and is largely procedural but also authentic mystery, who-done-it. This one features friends and family so it’s even less procedural.
Water Like a Stone

rating – B / mystery
The writing is adequate, there are lots of characters and the plot is twisty and compelling. It’s a good book to cozy up with on a holiday evening .
This is actually the next one up for me in the Duncan Kincaid/Gemma James. I think the series sort of went on hold since my library doesn’t have the next few books.
