Review: The Girl in the Green Raincoat - Laura Lippman


Today's review is one that I ended up being in two minds about - It is Laura Lippman's book "The Girl in the Green Raincoat".
Review: The Girl in the Green Raincoat- Book #11 Tess Monaghan Series- Laura Lippman- January 2011
I had been in two minds about writing a review of The Girl in the Green Raincoat by Laura Lippman as when it comes to her books , I have found that I either Love them or for some reason I can't get into them , though the majority of her books especially her book "I'd Know You Anywhere" is one of my top reads but for some reason I tried and tried and I could not completely get into The Girl in the Green Raincoat, thus though is not to say that I didn't read it :).
It seemed that lately my pile contained a couple of books to do with pregnancy , I had Then Came You by Jennifer Weiner and now The Girl in the Green Raincoat. In this novel we read as the main character our ever beloved Private Investigator Tess Monaghan has become pregnant and now in the last few months of her pregnancy she has become bed-ridden. With nothing to do but stare out the window each day , Tess being the ever observant PI - she watches and every morning a girl walks past in a green raincoat walking a dog - hence the title of the novel. Then one morning , she is gone and Tess's detective and investigative senses flare up and she starts to investigate with the help of her workmates her disappearance. Though as the novel gets on, we read as Tess becomes more and more involved and starts unravelling more than she bargained for. When the killer is onto her, will she be putting her and her unborn child at risk ? What secrets lie to be uncovered and what will the consequences lead to if revealed ?
Is this the last we read of Tess Monaghan ?
Find out all this and more in a nice quick read as The Girl in the Green Raincoat is about half the size of her normal novels by Laura Lippman.
