The Rope (Anna Pigeon Mysteries) by Nevada Barr
The Rope (Anna Pigeon Mysteries)

kodi, January 1, 2013

I selected "The Rope" by Nevada Barr because it was the most enjoyable book I read all year, so it was "the best" for me. I am a devoted Nevada Barr fan and expected to not really like this as it is a prequel (which I generally don't like) to all the other books in the Anna Pigeon series, but I found myself completely drawn in. I read primarily for pleasure and relaxation and this book took me away, made me laugh, cry, and tense up, I loved the storyline and writing.
