The Woman in the Library

The Woman in the Library by Sulari Gentill was on my TBR list for a while and the library had it. It was a quick and creative read about writing including a mystery. It was engaging, but only OK for me. “The tranquility is shattered by a woman’s terrified scream. Security guards take charge immediately, instructing everyone inside to stay put until the threat is identified and contained. While they wait for the all-clear, four strangers, who’d happened to sit at the same table, pass the time in conversation and friendships are struck. Each has his or her own reasons for being in the reading room that morning—it just happens that one is a murderer. Sulari Gentill delivers a sharply thrilling read with The Woman in the Library, an unexpectedly twisty literary adventure that examines the complicated nature of friendship and shows us that words can be the most treacherous weapons of all.” (Amazon) I think others might like this one more than I did. I can’t put my finger on it, but something about the characters and the tone didn’t make it a complete win for me.
