I love Marian Keyes. Well I supposed that’s a little strong. I really enjoyed reading The Brightest Star in the Sky, so I was thrilled when Evelina bought me The Mystery of Mercy Close for my birthday. I love Keyes’ writing style, but at first I wasn’t so sure about the main character of this novel, Hellen. That was until page 184. From then on I knew we would be friends.
Then again Hellen brings up Sweden on page 250, and Scandinavian crime films on page 256. (Steig Larsson anyone??)
My true adoration of Hellen, and Keyes as her creator, was solidified when an ä was included in the book.
Maybe love wasn’t too strong a word. Loved the book. Need I say more?
