Yesterday when I opened the door to my home after work, the place was quiet. I was alone: my husband was still commuting home and my daughters were at university. I am still not used to being the only one at home by 5pm on a Monday. With my daughter no longer at high school, I think it is going to take a while for me to get used to these moments alone.
You may be wondering what did with my silent time. Yes, of course! I made myself a coffee, grabbed a new read, and put my feet up on the sofa. I had been wanting to start Pressure Point by Jessie Kwak since I had received it last week.
I haven’t read much of the novel yet so I will share a teaser with you from the prologue:
“Manu’s found that nothing helps a negotiation along quite so well as your enemy knowing just how close you can get to them.” (p 9)
(2019, Jessie Kwak)
I look forward to reading the third novel in Jessie Kwak’s Bulari saga. Guess what I will be doing when I get home today!
Do you enjoy gangster-type stories?
