Laura Lippman has done it AGAIN! I just finished The Girl in the Green Raincoat on sale in January 2011. The Girl in the Green Raincoat is a new Tess Monaghan novel that first appeared in serial format in the New York Times Magazine.
In this new novel, we visit Tess Monaghan, who is now seven months pregnant and confined to bed rest. So instead of being able to track the next case, she spends her time looking out her window watching a girl wearing a green raincoat walking her dog. Everyday is business as usual until one day Tess notices the dog running loose and the girl in the green raincoat is nowhere to be found. Using her instincts, Tess believes something has happened to the young woman and the search begins to find her fate.
I found the book to be delightfully entertaining...a real page turner! I think it's an excellent read for those who are hardcore Laura Lippman fans. I also think it's great for those who haven't discovered her yet and are dying to add a new author to their reading lists.
I would love to hear your comments. I will send free advance reader copies of The Girl in the Green Raincoat to the 10 lucky people who send us a comment or an email at librarylovefest at harpercollins dot com. If you would be so kind as to send a brief review of the book after you read it, I would greatly appreciate it!
Congratulations Laura on this excellent book. It's sure to be a winner!
