To say that my reading has slowed right down since LMC was born would be an understatement. This is only the second book that I've managed to read in five months. Yikes!
Years ago I remember reading Kate Atkinson's Behind The Scenes At The Museum but strangely I remember very little about it. When my MIL passed me One Good Turn I again recalled reading BTSATM, but no more. One Good Turn felt familiar from the first page. I'm guessing that the Edinburgh setting must remind many of Rebus and as someone who loved Ian Rankin's detective that was certainly the case with me. The only thing missing was Rebus himself and I found that I really did miss him.
The book tried to tie together several different threads with varying levels of success. Some elements worked, others not so much. It was the same with some of the characters – some worked and I felt I got to know them well, but even by the last page there were others where I was left wanting. Overall I sort of enjoyed the book, but having read it over such a long period of time it was a tad pedestrian in places, although this may well have been my fault.
I guess I ought to try to find a copy of Behind The Scenes At The Museum and remind myself as to exactly what went on there!
