Review of How a Woman Becomes a Lake

I read this book as a buddy read with some other bookstagrammers. The book just really didn’t work for me. It might have been the timing. I read this on a cold rainy day and a lot of the book just seemed cold and dreary to me. I struggled with the characters because I just couldn’t find any redeeming qualities in any of them. The one character, the police officer, stood out initially but then he started doing questionable things like drinking on the job and getting involved with people for the wrong reasons. I also hoped for a bit more closure about the boys’ lives as adults and how they were coping etc. Although this book was a miss for me I would be interested in reading more from this author to see how her other books compare.
