The House at Riverton

by Kate Morton

It was the most pretentious twaddle! The main character was very elderly with limited mobility but managed to dash out of a cafe in a village on a Sunday and buy a dictaphone! .The characters spoke the most unbelievably unrealistic dialogue. The author did not show any understanding of the period she was writng about .

I read this book because it was such a popular best seller and I wanted to know why. I actually quite enjoyed it and would characterise it as an easy read with gentle twists and turns. I certainly felt engaged enough to want to read to the end.

It was a great book. The author showed understanding of her characters and the way the plot unfolded made it a great read.
