On Turpentine Lane

Finished On Turpentine Lane by Elinor Lipman. I received a copy for review. 

Faith’s life is going along fine. She has an easy job that she likes, even if it’s not intellectually stimulating. She has a fiance, even if he’s walking across the country–with enough time to pose for pictures with pretty women but not enough time to call her back. And she has a new house that she loves, even if it may have been the site of a murder. Or two. Certainly no more than three. It’s all murky. 

I adore this book. It’s so clever and fun and Faith is my new imaginary best friend. She’s sort of like an American Bridget Jones, if Bridget had more self-confidence and much less insecurity. 

I think this is my first Elinor Lipman and now I need to find her backlist. 

Recommended.

  1. I love Elinor Lipman! I think that’s why Abby, in A Matter of Heart, is named Abby Lipman. I was reading one of her books at the time. I haven’t read many, but I think the Inn at Lake Devine is my favorite. I’ll have to check out this new one! :)
