I came across this book when I was looking for new books to read on my Kindle. (And I absolutely love my Kindle, in case you were wondering!) It was a fast read. A little bit of a strange title, but it was pretty good. Here’s a description:
Freddie Nutter is a rookie cop with the Michigummee City Police Department in the wilds of the Upper Peninsula of Michigan, riding desk during the last weeks of her unplanned pregnancy. When her partner Doyle, and her baby’s daddy Mick send her on an innocent errand to pilfer some leftover spaghetti and meatballs from her mother’s refrigerator, Freddie’s life takes a horrifying turn. In her mother’s living room, Freddie discovers a blood soaked crime scene, but no body.
Hidden deep in the woods, psychopath Sammy’s obsession with Betsy Nutter’s corpse intensifies while his relationship with his own mother strains to its final thread, and he pursues his next victim. All the while, Freddie’s grief is compounded by the tense kinship with her alcoholic, philandering father, and a convoluted affection for her addicted brother—and the histories of Freddie Nutter and Sammy Gunn intertwine not for the first time, and certainly not for the last.
I thought it was pretty good. There were a few times I had my hand over my mouth with some of the horrifying details. If you don’t like bloody/gory books, this wouldn’t be for you. But overall, it was a pretty interesting story with a couple plot twists.
I also set a goal for myself to read 30 books this year. GoodReads is helping me keep track and I am apparently two books ahead of schedule. I was excited to fly through this book and add another book to my 30 books!
What are you reading these days? Anything worth recommending? Or anything worth advising to stay away from?
