Book Review: Two for Sorrow (Josephine Tey, #3) by Nicola Upson
Back in 2010, I discovered a website called Goodreads.com where I could keep track of what books I had read, what I was currently reading, and books that I wanted to read. Then, I found out that you could enter giveaways for a chance to win an advanced readers copy, also known as an ARC, of a book or a book that had already been published. I have been fortunate enough to win several books through Goodreads.com's First Reads Giveaways. One of those books was Two for Sorrow (Josephine Tey, #3) written by Nicola Upson. I received this novel for free in exchange for my honest review.
Not knowing anything at all about the author going into reading Two for Sorrow (Josephine Tey, #3), I had absolutely no preconceived ideas about Nicola Upson. Overall, the book was relatively well written, and the style of writing reminded me a bit of P.D. James. It was interesting enough to keep my attention until I got about halfway through the book. At that point, the story line really started to drag for me, and I had to push through it. When I got to the last eighty or so pages of Two for Sorrow (Josephine Tey, #3), the narrative really started to pick up. Even though this is the third book in a series, it definitely can be read as a stand alone book. I gave this novel three out of five stars because the book redeemed itself in my opinion. If you liked this book, then I definitely recommend you try reading Devices and Desires (Adam Dalgliesh, #8) by P.D. James.
