Weep a While Longer by Penny Freedman

Weep a While LongerWeep a While Longer by Penny Freedman
My rating: 3 of 5 stars

I am not always a fan of 'police investigations' unless they roll along nicely. This one did for a while then it slowed. Then other things got in the way.

Gina Gray is the top character in this book I would say, she not only is a woman working on the murder case but she is having some major family problems at home. I know this would allow the reader to make her feel more 'real' and not just someone who is an Investigator working for the Police. It worked, but it distracted sometimes away from the sole purpose of her work.

I didn't feel the urge to keep picking up my Kindle like I had done with lots of other books.

This is book 4 in this series. I haven't read the other books, and after saying what I have, I would never be adverse to not pick up one of her books again, after all, not everything a chef cooks is perfect right?! Doesn't mean we write them off and never allow them to cook for us again, it was just that this book didn't hold my attention.

I would like to thank the author and of course the publisher Troubador Publishing Ltd via Net Galley for my copy

'I saw them,' I say. 'I saw them this afternoon.' And then, stupidly, 'How can they be dead?' 

The fourth in a series of crime novels featuring Gina Gray and DCI David Scott, Weep A While Longer sets cosy Middle England against a dark crime. 

Picking up her granddaughter from nursery one summer afternoon, Gina Gray notices a mother and child with a dog. A few hours later she sees their faces on the TV screen, victims of a brutal murder. DCI David Scott, Gina’s semi-detached partner, is determined to keep her out of the investigation but nothing can prevent her from witnessing the case’s terrifying dénouement. 

The murder case is not the only thing preoccupying her, however. Her mother, her granddaughter, her job, her house invaded by her daughter’s student friends, the costumes for open air Shakespeare in the Minster grounds and, not least, her relationship with David Scott, all combine to distract her. As the police pursue the killer, Gina’s life at work and at home is running out of control. When the crash comes, just how bad will it be?
