It only occured to me, reading book #17, that they don't mention our hero's daughter in the book. I must admit, I missed that detail. Lindsay Boxer is the detective with an infant, and I just kept reading. Having finished it, I looked it up. I missed the detail: that this book's events take place 5 years prior, and the two-year-old wasn't born yet. Apparently, I am not the only one who missed that detail in the beginning of the book!
It's a tricky part of the series. I remember juggling motherhood and work. I find it hard to believe the overtime Detective Boxer works. She has an elderly neighbour who minds her kid, but her husband is a part time stay-at-home dad.
Finally, someone returned book #23 to the library. I read that, and then they returned #23 1/2 Lies. JB hustled in to pick it up for me.
Imagine my shock when I gazed through the book, and found out it contains three novellas. It seems to finish off the Women's Murder Club story, then two more new books. I had questions! Did she keep on working, how did she juggle being a detective, with her and her husband's job? I appears as if there is a book 24 in 2024, which seems fitting.
I have 19, 20, 21, 22 and 23 in our local library. I finished #21 early November.
